Thanks for the comments. I known the threads may cost many memory.
However, I already excluded them from the statistics. The 'after test'
info was gotten while the 10000 threads running but no traffics
relayed. You may look at the meminfo of 'after test', there is still
104080 kB slab memory which should already included the thread kernel
memory cost (8K*10000=80MB). I know 10000 threads are not necessary
and just use the simple logic to do some test.
