Profile Memory Management Efficiency

Registered by John Moser on 2006-09-01

One part of memory usage is the effectiveness of the memory allocator. Memory allocations are not 1:1 with system memory use; the allocator gets memory from the system and decides how to split it up amongst malloc() calls. Fragmentation and other issues can lead to excess memory being used when very little is actually needed. This specification investigates into the amount of memory waste present on Ubuntu Linux due to the glibc allocator, ptmalloc.
