MPS issue job003938

TitleUseless traces are started and progressed
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf the MPS has no tracing work to do, it still starts and progresses traces, thus uselessly scanning the root set, flipping the buffers, and aging location dependencies. This is a waste of time.
AnalysisIt would be better if traces were not started when there is nothing to do.
