Channel9 Video on Background GC


A couple of weeks back my PM and I did a channel9 video on Background GC. Take a look:

    hi maoni, great blog you’ve got here

    i wondered whether you could write a little about the issue described here: http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/sasha/archive/2009/07/31/garbage-collection-thread-suspension-delay-250ms-multiples.aspx (thread suspension and safepoints)

    perhaps you’ve got any best-practices or maybe tips on how to avoid such situations? is there some method i could call to explicitly inform the GC that i’m inside a safepoint? (let’s say i’m not counting on the jit to insert such call for me..)

    thanks
