Description

The hbw::allocator<T> is intended to be used with STL containers to allocate high bandwidth memory. Memory management is based on hbwmalloc (memkind library), enabling users to gain performance in multithreaded applications. Refer hbwmalloc(3) and memkind(3) man page for more details.

All public member types and functions corresponds to standard library allocator concepts and definitions. The current implementation supports C++03 standard.

Template arguments:
T is an object type aliased by value_type.
U is an object type.

Note:
hbw::allocator<T>::pointer hbw::allocator<T>::allocate(hbw::allocator<T>::size_type n, const void * = 0) allocates high bandwidth memory using hbw_malloc(). Throw std::bad_alloc when:
n = 0,
n > max_size(),
or there is not enough memory to satisfy the request.

void hbw::allocator<T>::deallocate(hbw::allocator<T>::pointer p, hbw::allocator<T>::size_type n) deallocates memory associated with pointer returned by allocate() using hbw_free().

To find out more about hbw_malloc() and hbw_free() read hbwmalloc(3) man page.

Errors

The same as described in Errors section of hbwmalloc(3) man page.

Notes

The hbw::allocator<T> behavior depends on hbwmalloc heap management policy. To get and set the policy please use hbw_get_policy() and hbw_set_policy() respectively.
