Is an option you want. Without the enter/leave hooks are registered
which has a significant cost.

Not sure if this is the only option or just one of a few (have not
tested on your use case)

Is there any way to reduce the runtime overhead when it's not generating a heapshot? This link suggests that I should disable counters, but I don't see any options for that:
