Subject Fast malloc for SMP machines?
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2000 15:13:36 GMT
Stop me if you've heard this a million times, but has anybody ever 
tried linking Apache with Hoard on a large SMP/ccNUMA machine?  It 
supposedly can dramatically increase the malloc speed of 
multi-threaded apps that simply link to it.  It's LGPL and uses C++ 
(although it works with C), so it wouldn't be standard distribution 
material, but I would be really interested to see if it helps the new 
multi-threaded Apache builds.  Unfortunately I don't (yet) have an SMP 
box on which to test it.  http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/emery/hoard/
