5x increase in total memory allocation for `prof-doc-fib` test since 2011
Commit c81e0706 (#8811 (closed)) makes a small change to the formatting of the profiling output. When updating the prof.sample files in the
testsuite/tests/profiling/should_run directory, we noticed that memory allocation numbers for several tests have increased substantially since 2011.
-total alloc = 107,829,264 bytes (excludes profiling overheads) +total alloc = 538,951,032 bytes (excludes profiling overheads)
The following tests need investigation:
- T680.prof.sample (2x total alloc)
- prof-doc-fib.prof.sample (5x)
- prof-doc-last.prof.sample (3x)
- scc003.prof.sample (2x)
Maybe it's nothing serious, but I'm setting priority to high since it seems like a regression.
