X Memo Pool

Join the chat at

A memory pool implemented by C.

Sharing a same pool in multi-thread is not recommanded.


Create Pool

At first you should create a pool handler for your data (or structure).

xmem_pool_handler xmem_create_pool(unsigned int block_size);

xmem_pool_hander is only a pointer which typedefed at xmempool.h.

typedef char* xmem_pool_handler;

Notice: first I used typedef void* xmem_pool_handler, but for compatible, I changed it to char*.

For an example:

typedef struct stct {
    int  id;
    char str[16];
} stct;

xmem_pool_handler pool1 = xmem_create_pool(sizeof(stct));
xmem_pool_handler pool2 = xmem_create_pool(sizeof(int));

if(!pool1 || !pool2) printf("Can't alloc more space\n");

Allocate Memory

You can get a space of a certain size via function:

char* xmem_alloc(xmem_pool_handle handle);

For an example:

stct* my_stct = (stct*)xmem_alloc(pool1);
if(!my_stct) printf("Can't alloc more space.\n");

And then you will get a whole empty space that fits stct.

Recover Memory

After your scope you want to recover your memory, don't use free(). There's a function below:

int xmem_free(xmem_pool_handle handle, char* pointer);

The return value:

  • 0: invalid pool handler or the pointer not belongs to this pool, can't be recovered.
  • 1: succeeded.

For an example:

int result = xmem_free(pool1, my_stct);
if(!result) printf("Cannot be recovered.\n");

Destroy the Whole Pool

void xmem_destroy_pool(xmem_pool_handle pool);

Caution! This function will destroy the whole pool, freeing all your memory allocated by that pool, even if you haven't xmem_free yet.



You can refer to xmempool.h for any more functions.


$ npm install

Install dependencies via command above and then type follow command:

$ node perf.js

The report will be generated at ./perf/report.

Here's some my report.
