I new to .Net profiler, and it is a bit owerwhelming..

I have this element that keeps coming up, but i'm not sure if it is a leak.

See image

Could sombody give me a hint.
- Does it look problematic ?

Basicly it is an XMLDocument that is added nodes from one thread, and then the node is removed quickly after from another thread

The instance graph shows that you have an XmlDocument that is kept alive through the X_Doc field of a Lokal_bon instance. As long as you intend to use the data in the XmlDocument again this is not a memory leak. And since the Local_bon instance is referenced be a method (Send_the_rest) it seems like it is being actively used when the snapshot was collected.

Once the XmlDocument is no longer needed, the X_Doc field of the Lokal_bon can be set to null and then the XmlDocument may get eligible for garbage collection (unless it's referenced by other instances/roots).

That puts my mind to rest
