UWorld::SetTimeUntilNextGarbageCollection

Updates the timer (as a one-off) that is used to trigger garbage collection; this should only be used for things like performance tests, using it recklessly can dramatically increase memory usage and cost of the eventual GC.

Remarks

Updates the timer (as a one-off) that is used to trigger garbage collection; this should only be used for things like performance tests, using it recklessly can dramatically increase memory usage and cost of the eventual GC.

Note: Things that force a GC will still force a GC after using this method (and they will also reset the timer)

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
