How to set the max heap size in C#?

Dear all,

I am writing an application which constructing a fairly big tree for
some financial pricing application. How can I increase the heap size
of the .NET runtime environment?

I have tried doing it in Java before which I can set use the /mx flag
in the java runtime. How to do equivalent thing in .NET or C#?

Thanks a lot.

The info in the link may or may not provide you with a workaround.

The .Net heap will grow, as needed, to consume all available memory. There's
no need to manually adjust it.

On x86, you'll be limited about 1.5gb, regarless of how much memory you have
on your system.

On x64 or IA64, the limits are much, much higher.

If you're doing "Big" calculations, and memory is a concern, just run under
x64 and make sure your code is set to "Any CPU". This does mean you need x64
hardware, and a 64-bit O/S installed (XP x64, Vista x64, Windows 2003 x64).

I don't think he's hitting LOH issues.

When doing financial calcs, I think the common scenario is to have a huge
amount of very small datapoints all loaded into a decision tree. This
usually means it's the standard Managed Heap, and his stuff will just end up
in Gen2 pretty quick.

Certianly though, without more data, it could go either way.

Hello, I couldn't find an obvious answer to this in the FAQ. My basic question, is: Is there any difference in allocating on the heap versus the stack? If heap or stack implementation is not part of the standard, then just disregard this question. Here's some questions I'm confused about, and if you can add anything else, please do so! Is the stack limited for each program?

The purpose of the Insert function is to add a new integer in the Heap assuming that it is not already full. If Heap capacity has been reached, it attempts to double the current capacity.
