So, we have got such regression, and I have to think about

all new ones. :(
The primary thing to determine is if this extra memory is due to
application demand or not.
Sure not and I have tested that by *valgrind*, and this process of
fragmentation is really satiated after pointed number in the table .
To determine that I usually use a set of malloc tracing utilities:
These let you capture the direct API calls and graph the application
demand, which you can compare to the real usage.
Then you can take your trace of malloc API calls, which represents
your workload, and run it in the simulator with different tunable
parameters to see if they make any difference or if the simulator
reproduces your excess usage. If it does then you can use the workload
and the simulator as your test case to provide to upstream glibc
developers to look at the problem.
Thanks, but we have just resolved this problem as a disadvantage of the
memory arenas, setting which to the 1 completely removes this
extra-consumption on such kind tasks.
