TCMalloc: A High-Performance Memory Allocator

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this talk, I plan to discuss TCMalloc, a high-performance memory allocator for C++ that we use in Google. Specifically, I’ll be covering points:

- Why the choice of memory allocator impacts application performance
- How we’ve optimized our implementation to reduce the “data center tax”
- Where we leverage C++ language features for better memory allocation
- What telemetry we can obtain from TCMalloc in production, and how we leverage it
