So why are THP enabled by default? I could understand if they were

And I don't understand why redis recommend a setting of never rather
than madvise, if anybody has any thoughts on that?

Strange, they are disabled on 42.3.

On my Lenovo laptop with Leap42.3 and 8Gb memory, it is enabled.

cer@Telcontar:~> cat /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
[always] madvise never

I suppose that is disabled. This machine has 8 GiB, a desktop with 15.0

I obtain the same result on my small laptop, which has 4 GiB.
