Description of Problem:

I have installed mono 2.6.4 on 24-core machine and during xbuild or running
application the following warning occures:

GC Warning: Limiting number of mark threads

I have found in mono-2.6.4/libgc/pthread_support.c these lines of code:


# ifndef MAX_MARKERS
#   define MAX_MARKERS 16
# endif


    if (GC_markers > MAX_MARKERS) {
    WARN("Limiting number of mark threads\n", 0);
    GC_markers = MAX_MARKERS;

What does GC_MARKERS mean and why it is limited to 16 ?

It is just warning, but the CPU usage on my machine is about 1000% instead of
supposed 20000% (maximum is 24000%).

Many thanks in advance.
