This isn't a very helpful response. I'm not even asking about ongoing memory growth and overhead, at least not yet. I want to know what are the parts that we (or at least some of us) _do_ understand and how can we at least calculate those things so that: 1. we even have a sense of how much memory is being eaten up by things we don't know 2. we know at least roughly what sort of impact we can make by adjusting the parts we do know
As for these test workloads, can someone enlighten me more as to what they might look like and how they would be used? Depending on what is involved, I or someone I know may be able to figure something out to get us started in the right direction.
