Here are some monitoring tools that might help detect the cause of
the situation.

bloatmon is the "back end"; there's no reason to run it directly.

bloatmeter shows the "least utilized" slabs.

bloatmost shows the largest slabs.

These sort of make for a top(1) for "lowmem pressure". Not everything
is accounted there, though. The missing pieces are largely

(1) simultaneous temporary poll table allocations
(2) pmd's
(3) kernel stacks

frac = 0.0;

printf "%18s: %8dKB %8dKB %3d.%-2d\n", $1, active, alloc, pct, frac;
