IE11 - Garbage Collection RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm doing some performance profiling in IE11 to help resolve a bunch of UI jank and noticed something that I'm curious about.  In my profiling, I see garbage collection as running both on background threads and occasionally the UI thread.  What causes the GC to decide to occur on the UI thread?  Since it often takes 100-200ms or more for the GC to complete, that's a significant amount of dropped frames during dragging, scrolling, etc.
