      Description

      The database is larger than RAM and I am creating an index in the foreground. The shared_ptr destructor was frequently active when I used call stack sampling. The shared_count destructor used by shared_ptr was the #3 CPU consumer per Linux perf.

      I don't have much experience with modern C++. My experience with shared_ptr is mostly limited to finding that it uses too much CPU. Is the destructor getting called frequently because the copy constructor was invoked frequently?
