    Description

      We currently check certain system parameters at start-up including high read-ahead and transparent huge pages.

      It turns out even if THP are disabled (enabled set to [never]) if defrag is "always" then it impacts mongod when Linux defrags the pages. We should extend the check and the warning to /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/defrag
