    This class already has a method called `reset`. Why do we need to add 
another resetting method?

> When taskmanager.memory.preallocate is false (the default), released memory 
> segments are not added to a pool, but the GC is expected to take care of 
> them. This puts too much pressure on the GC with iterative jobs, where the 
> operators reallocate all memory at every superstep.
> See the following discussion on the mailing list:
> http://apache-flink-mailing-list-archive.1008284.n3.nabble.com/Memory-manager-behavior-in-iterative-jobs-tt10066.html
> Reproducing the issue:
> https://github.com/ggevay/flink/tree/MemoryManager-crazy-gc
> The class to start is malom.Solver. If you increase the memory given to the 
> JVM from 1 to 50 GB, performance gradually degrades by more than 10 times. 
> (It will generate some lookuptables to /tmp on first run for a few minutes.) 
> (I think the slowdown might also depend somewhat on 
> taskmanager.memory.fraction, because more unused non-managed memory results 
> in rarer GCs.)
