lockfree-malloc is a scalable drop-in replacement for malloc/free.
* It's thread-friendly. It supports a practically-unlimited number of concurrent threads, without locking or performance degradation. * It's efficient, especially in a multi-threaded environment. Compared to a stock libc allocator, we see a significant performance boost. * It does NOT fragment or leak memory, unlike a stock libc allocator. * It wastes less memory. For small objects (less than 8kb in size), the overhead is around 0 bytes. (!) * It is designed from the ground-up for 64-bit architectures. * It is elegant. The whole codebase is only around 800 lines of fairly clean C++. (!) * It fully stand-alone; it does not rely on pthreads or libc at runtime.
