Name

ThreadWaitReason

Synopsis

This enumeration specifies the reason a thread is waiting. VirtualMemory indicates that a thread is waiting for virtual memory to be allocated, and PageIn and PageOut indicate that a thread is waiting for virtual memory to page in or out respectively. FreePage is for threads waiting for a free virtual memory page. EventPairHigh and EventPairLow signal that the thread is waiting on events. LpcReceive indicates that a thread is waiting for a local procedure call, and LpcReply means that it is waiting for a reply to a local procedure call. If thread execution has been suspended or delayed, you will see either Suspended or ExecutionDelay. SystemAllocation means that the thread is waiting for a system allocation, and Executive indicates that it is waiting for the scheduler. Unknown is for when the operating system cannot report why a thread is waiting.
