• name: gcrootfinder
  • description: Strategy for finding GC Roots (framework GCs only)
  • command-line: –gcrootfinder
  • option type: choice option
  • possible values:
    • n/a
    • shadowstack
  • default: shadowstack
  • requirements:

Choose the method used to find the roots in the GC. This only applies to our framework GCs.

  • --gcrootfinder=shadowstack: use a so-called “shadow stack”, which is an explicitly maintained custom stack of root pointers. This is the most portable solution, and also the only one available now.
