CLR Inside Out: Large Object Heap Uncovered
In many of my posts I have discussed performance issues and memory issues caused by excessive use of the Large Object Heap, here are a few examples.
- ASP.NET Case Study: High CPU in GC - Large objects and high allocation rates
- ASP.NET Case Study: Bad perf, high memory usage and high CPU in GC - Death By ViewState
Maoni just wrote a nice article in MSDN Magazine called CLR Inside Out: Large Object Heap Uncovered, it is definitely worth a read if you are interested in how the GC works and specifically why the GC heaps are split into small object heap segments and large object heap segments.
