Convert self.body to a Buffer if it's a String to reduce mem usage #2051
A performance regression was introduced in: 478e0c2#diff-ccc0734f65dd7a299409ff07d35be095L436 Strings have a larger overhead than Buffers, which can cause the process to run out of memory faster when POSTing large payloads.
This might be an edge case, but it's something I ran into in Artillery which uses Request for HTTP, and it is a regression in performance after
Test case here:
I can create an isolated test case for the test suite if this ok to be merged.
