bool "SLOB (Simple Allocator)"
help
- SLOB replaces the SLAB allocator with a drastically simpler
- allocator. SLOB is more space efficient than SLAB but does not
- scale well (single lock for all operations) and is also highly
- susceptible to fragmentation. SLUB can accomplish a higher object
- density. It is usually better to use SLUB instead of SLOB.
+ SLOB replaces the stock allocator with a drastically simpler
+ allocator. SLOB is generally more space efficient but
+ does not perform as well on large systems.
