> I have a theory and some experiments that indicate our heap fragmentation issues has
to do with the KV buffers from memstores ending up entirely interleaved in the old gen. I
had a bit of wine and came up with a wacky idea to have a thread which continuously defragments
memstore data buffers into contiguous segments, hopefully to keep old gen fragmentation down.
> It didn't seem to work just yet, but wanted to show the patch to some people.
