:chutten, I see you authored the patch in bug 1335343, this appears to have caused a slight increase in memory for windows 10, could you confirm this is expected?  I am not sure if there are things we could do to reduce this increase in memory.

Each histogram now has to tell us what processes it is permitted to be recorded in. This requires a uint32_t per histogram (as many as 1556) per process (not sure how many processes that uses). This should be across all processes.

There's nothing to be done for it, it's just a cost we now have to bear to make data reporting better.

Do you need more information?

Oh, that being said, we are refactoring how this influences storage in bug 1366294, so this will change a bit in the near future.
