Thanks for the analysis. Could you describe your allocation pattern a bit? Usually many spans stay in the mcentrals, so they don't have to grow that much outside of initialization and phase changes. But it sounds like the allocations in your application have very closely tied lifetimes, so entire spans are often freed together and returned to the heap.
Interesting. With your modification, is
