If you are using hugepages then automatic numa is not migrating those
pages. If you are pinning the JVMs to the socket then automatic numa
balancing is unnecessary as they are already on the correct node.

You are only checking for regressions with your configuration which is
important because it showed that schednuma introduced only overhead in
an optimisation NUMA configuration.

In your case, you will see little or not benefit with any automatic NUMA
balancing implementation as the most important pages neiter can migrate
nor need to.
