What is garbage collection In .Net

Interview Questions:-

In DotNet FrameWork, garbage collection (GC) is a form of
automatic memory management. The garbage collector, or just collector, attempts to reclaim garbage, or memory occupied by objects that are no longer in use by the program.

Garbage collection is a CLR feature, which automatically manages memory. Programmers forget
to release the objects while coding ... Laziness (Remember in VB6 where one of the good
practices is to set object to nothing). CLR automatically releases objects when they are no longer
in use and refernced. CLR runs on non-deterministic to see the unused objects and cleans them.
One side effect of this non-deterministic feature is that we cannot assume an object is destroyed
when it goes out of the scope of a function. We should avoid using destructors because before GC
destroys the object it first executes destructor in that case it will have to wait for code to release
the unmanaged resource. This results in additional delays in GC. So it is recommended to
implement IDisposable interface, write cleanup code in Dispose method, and call
GC.SuppressFinalize method. Its like instructing GC not to call your constructor. For more details
read why is it preferred to not use finalize for clean up? in OOPS chapter.
