This method adjusts the degree of parallelization automatically, blocks the caller, and does not support cancellation or reporting progress. Use the BeginClear or ClearAsync (in .NET Framework 4.0 and above) methods for asynchronous call and to adjust parallelization, set up cancellation and for reporting progress.
