C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance

By: Ovais Mehboob Ahmed Khan

Overview of this book

While writing an application, performance is paramount. Performance tuning for realworld applications often involves activities geared toward fnding bottlenecks; however, this cannot solve the dreaded problem of slower code. If you want to improve the speed of your code and optimize an application's performance, then this book is for you. C# 7 and .NET Core 2.0 High Performance begins with an introduction to the new features of what?explaining how they help in improving an application's performance. Learn to identify the bottlenecks in writing programs and highlight common performance pitfalls, and learn strategies to detect and resolve these issues early. You will explore multithreading and asynchronous programming with .NET Core and learn the importance and effcient use of data structures. This is followed with memory management techniques and design guidelines to increase an application’s performance. Gradually, the book will show you the importance of microservices architecture for building highly performant applications and implementing resiliency and security in .NET Core. After reading this book, you will learn how to structure and build scalable, optimized, and robust applications in C#7 and .NET.

Memory allocation process overview

Memory allocation is the process of allocating objects in memory when the application is running. It is done by the Common Language Runtime (CLR). When the object is initialized (using a new keyword), the GC checks whether the generation reaches the threshold and performs garbage collection. This means that when the system memory reaches its limit, the GC is invoked. When an application runs, the GC register itself receives an event notification about the system memory, and when the system reaches its particular limit, it invokes garbage collection.

On the other hand, we can also programmatically invoke the GC using the GC.Collect method. However, as the GC is a highly fine-tuned algorithm and automatically behaves as per memory allocation patterns, calling it explicitly can affect performance, and so it is strongly recommended that you don&apos...
