      Description

      I've noticed when applications get into a state where they log more exceptions than usual (e.g. network connectivity issues) thread dumps contain many threads working inside of ThrowableProxy, loading classes.

      A simple jmh benchmark of a pattern layout writing to disk with a message and throwable appears to write about 160,000 events/second using a throwable, and 2,000 events/second using ThrowableProxy.
      I will investigate to understand where the substantial difference is coming from, and clean up the benchmarks to add to the log4j2 benchmarking module.
