I am investigating the memory consumption of my application with .NET Memory Profiler.
I have a background operation which is doing some actions. When this operation is active I can see in the Real-time view, that the Garbage collection is invoked frequently, however I can not see the objects which are using more memory because they are released, so I can not take snapshot with valid information.
Is it possible to see the most memory consuming created objects in a background operation which is repeated once and again? How?

Only one question more.
In real time tab, we see some information of current live instances, allocs/sec, ...
Here, there are points marked in gray where according the legend the garbage collector is triggered. In this information, what the number on the top of the lines means? And is this information reliable? Because, now I am comparing with the memory profiler from VS2015, and according this one, the garbage collector is not executed the same times.

thanks for you answer.
Visual Studio 2015, executing the same application, shows GC invoctation each minute aprox. On the other hand .NET Memory Profiler each 2 seconds.
I rely .NET Memory Profiler information, but I was surprised about the difference.

If you collect two snapshots, you will get information about the allocations performed for each type between the snapshots.You can then double-click one of the types to get more details information about the allocations of a type. Show the allocation call stacks and sort them by "Allocations/sec". Now you will get call stack information about all the allocations of the type. You can browse through the allocation stacks using the navigation buttons. The "Call stacks/Methods" page can also be used to retrieve allocation information, focusing on the methods/call stacks instead of types.
detailed one! thanks for the info. I was about to ask or post but when I read this one.. I am moved.. thanks! this is a way better than my optional solution.
