We released the heap, these virtual memory will be reused in new_heap function. No potential problems have been found yet. The practice in PATCH will definitely lead to an increase in system calls. Since glibc is used in many scenarios, the patch we submitted did not modify the size of the heap to be cautious.
Compared with the current mechanism in GLIBC,the probability of a large amount of physical memory resident is very high, just holding any piece of memory in TOP TUNK will cause all the memory before TOP TUNK to reside. I think it is worth it.
These days, we coordinate with colleagues to test the performance of the patch.Our amendment is as follows.
1. Set the size of heap to 512KB (the submitted patch is 64M by default);
2. Release the unused heap (consistent with the submitted patch)
In the same test environment(Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU @ 2.00GHz, 12 processors， 32G RAM), we try to simulate using the maximum specification of business data.
There is little performance degradation. The test results are as follows.
Package(Bytes) Not patched Patched
128 24.88Mpps 24.10Mpps
256 24.60Mpps 24.18Mpps
512 15.51Mpps 15.51Mpps
1024 7.14Mpps 7.48Mpps
1280 5.52Mpps 5.52Mpps
1400 4.89Mpps 4.89Mpps
1518 4.51Mpps 4.51Mpps
Thank you very much for your advice.
1, I have thought about this method before, but I gave up due to it's just a hint.
2, As the problem has been solved, I can't coordinate to the classmate test again for your suggestion. I'll test it myself.

Does that cause any actual performance degradation or any other issues though? heap_shrink() calls madvise (MADV_DONTNEED) on the free parts of the heap to tell the kernel that the blocks are not needed, so a fully freed heap ought to not have any performance impact. The RSS footprint will depend on when the kernel reclaims those pages, which may not be immediate since madvise is just a hint.
Alternatively, if you disable memory overcommit by setting /proc/sys/vm/overcommit_memory to 2, heap_shrink() will drop all permissions on the heap with mprotect(PROT_NONE) instead of doing madvise. This has a more immediate effect on RSS usage unlike madvise.
