[SoC 2008] Complete the New Memory Management Module

Post by eXt »

Hi, I would like to create a benchmark and measure the performance of the current memory management module and depending on the outcome fix the module so it is stable enought for main branch. I don't know how well the current module performs so maybe there isn't lot of work that needs to be done. A problem with memory management is that it depends a lot on the users hardware.

It is very hard to see it there will be an improvement with custom allocators as it depends on many factors including how heavy the heap is used. Generally I have seen ~10-15% speedup.

I also would like to add some debugging aids which helps tracking memory related errors and integrate an optional crash reporter (google-breakpad for instance).
