To improve this a little, we can record the number evacuation failure object per region, and not record these objects when the number hit some limit. But I'm not sure if it's necessary to do so, as I think such condition is so extreme to be met in real environment, although I'm not quite sure.

I think the windows build failure is not related to this change, will push it.
