As pointed out in grpc/grpc-go#1587 (comment) (and in cockroachdb/cockroach#17370), re-using MetaHeadersFrame memory similarly to DataFrames has the potential to increase performance significantly (~50% throughput increase), even where the header frame data is quite small (10s of bytes). The http2 library should ideally support this.

@dfawley Do you have a benchmark you can share? Ideally something we could copy into x/net/http2.

Also: it's not clear from the grpc issue if this was a microbenchmark or a more realistic benchmark.

The http2 library should ideally support this

we build gateway base on x/net/http2, when reuse MetaHeaderFrame (especially mh.Fields) and HeaderFrame ,gain ~10% qps benifits and reduce ~3% pause time

ps:we have 7~10 header filed per stream
