Issue #15878 has been updated by ko1 (Koichi Sasada).


> A rough sketch of the process is that we first run GC normally, then if something remains, that is force-recycled.

No. We don't run GC at last.

This patch shows GC events every time. Output:

`rb_objspace_call_finalizer` run finalizers for all objects (don't collect, but run special finalize functions).

Feature #15878: Make exit faster by not running GC
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/15878#change-78323

* Author: grosser (Michael Grosser)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Target version: 
----------------------------------------
I noticed that exit takes 0.2 ... I'm trying to write a fast cli, so any improvement here would be great or an option to opt-out of certain cleanup tasks
exit! takes a constant low time

```
ruby -rbenchmark -e 'puts Benchmark.realtime { Process.wait(fork { exit }) }' # 0.03 great!
ruby -rbenchmark -rrubocop -e 'puts Benchmark.realtime { Process.wait(fork { exit }) }' # 0.18 :(
ruby -rbenchmark -rrubocop -e 'GC.disable; puts Benchmark.realtime { Process.wait(fork { exit }) }' # 0.04 :D
ruby -rbenchmark -rrubocop -e 'puts Benchmark.realtime { Process.wait(fork { exit! }) }' # 0.002 ... fast but unsafe
```
