Has anyone used this??
Announcing release 1.3.1 of Hoard, a fast, scalable and memory-efficient
allocator for multithreaded applications on multiprocessors. Hoard
solves the heap contention problem caused when multiple threads
simultaneously call malloc() and free() (or new and delete).
Hoard scales linearly up to at least 14 processors and has guaranteed
on memory consumption. You can use Hoard without changing any of your
source code: just link it in. Linking with Hoard can result in a
*dramatic* speedup of your application.
Supported systems include Linux, Solaris, IRIX (with pthreads and
sproc support), Windows NT, and with this release, the BeOS.
Hoard is distributed under the Lesser GNU Public License, so you may
freely distribute any application linked with Hoard. You can download
Hoard from the Hoard home page:
