CLR Thread Count

Nov 28, 2011 at 2:25 PM

Hi guys,

I noticed after looking at the StatusLog.txt that there's a high number in the CLR Thread Count when the log pops up.  After checking things out, it looks like the count goes to maybe 20, then jumps upto 4294967000.  My guess is that the uint datatype is used and maybe it's going negative, thus showing a high number?  I never found an instance where it progressively hits that number.

This is nothing to worry about, right?

I think you're spot on - we've seen this before as well, however after investiagation it looks like this a bug within the Windows performance monitors related to CLR thread counts that occurs after a several days of running. You can be sure there are not really that many threads in use!
