NOTE: 32-BIT PLATFORMS HAVE NOT YET BEEN TESTED! To test tcmalloc / jemalloc / hoard / ptmalloc: 1. Make sure new_delete_allocator is selected at selector.h 2. See useful build notes at section "Testing" at http://ithare.com/testing-memory-allocators-ptmalloc2-tcmalloc-hoard-jemalloc-while-trying-to-simulate-real-world-loads/ 3. Edit build_gcc.sh to enable one of the above allocators (add/edit to have one of -ljemalloc, -ltcmalloc, -lhoard, or -L path/to/libmalloc.a) ( Note: -lhoard: see https://github.com/emeryberger/Hoard -L path/to/libmalloc.a assumes that libmalloc.a is already built for a target platform To test any other allocator: 1. Create "src/my_allocator.h" file with a class representing an allocator to be tested. As a sample "src/new_delete_allocator.h" or "src/void_allocator.h" could be taken. class MyAllocator must have all member functions found in the above-mentioned samples as this class is used as a template parameter in the testing routine 2. Edit "src/selector.h" to switch to using a new allocator 3. Rebuild and run
