Subject[PATCH 3/7] perf data: Enable stream flush within processing
Date
For big data files the size of data allocated for stream
instance could get really high. It's needed to flush the
data out of the stream once in a while.

Unfortunately there's no size indication in the stream
object, so we govern the flush based on the number of
stored events. Current flush limit is set ot 100000
events.
