Issues that this hotfix rollup fixes
CLR issueLarge workloads that have a specific usage pattern for dynamic methods (such as LINQ to SQL and the Entity Framework) encounter an intermittent crash that's caused by an issue in dynamic method lifetime management. This fix helps correct the lifetime management issue.
ASP.NET issueBoth System.Web.Caching and System.Runtime.Caching incorrectly report the size of memory used by the whole AppDomain instead of the size of memory used by the cache items. This is a regression issue from the .NET Framework 4.5 in which a change in Timer implementation was made. In addition to reporting an incorrect size, the additional objects referenced by the cache may significantly affect Gen2 GC latency. In ASP.NET hosting scenarios, the cache also miscalculates the size of all caches in all application domains (reported through the Cache % Process Memory Limit Used ASP.NET performance counter) when application domains are recycled.
This fix removes unintended references from the cache to the rest of the application domain objects. It also includes changes to improve the latency for System.Runtime.Caching on multi-core systems by using Server GC. Finally, this fix correctly calculates the size of all caches in application domain recycling scenarios.
