Ngen on Linux status


I was wondering if ngen will be available on Linux for .Net Core. I know that under mono the equivalent is called AOT but if I am to target .Net Core, how can I generate a native image.

I want to minimize the impact of jitting code. Is .Net Native planned to be supported on Linux?


Yes, native image generation is going to available for both Windows and Linux. The first step is to enable CMake-based build of crossgen.exe tool – tracked by Also check for a related discussion.


Nice and thanks for the quick response.
