Description

Default implementations for memkind operations which include a several useful methods that are not part of the MEMKIND_DEFAULT kind which is a fall through to the jemalloc implementation.

memkind_default_create() implements the required start up for every kind. If a kind does not point to this function directly for its ops.create() operation, then the function that it points to must call memkind_default_create() at its start.

memkind_default_destroy() implements the required shutdown for every kind. If a kind does not point to this function directly for its ops.destroy() operation, then the function that it points to must call memkind_default_destroy() at its end.

memkind_default_malloc() is a direct call through to jemk_malloc().

memkind_default_calloc() is a direct call through to jemk_calloc().

memkind_default_posix_memalign() is a direct call through to jemk_posix_memalign().

memkind_default_realloc() is a direct call through to jemk_realloc().

memkind_default_free(). is a direct call through to jemk_free(). Note that this method can be called on any pointer returned by a jemalloc allocation, and in particular, all of the arena allocations described in memkind_arena(3) can use this function for freeing.

memkind_default_mmap() This calls the ops->get_mmap_flags() operations for the kind, or falls back on the default implementations if the function pointers are NULL. The results of these calls are passed to the mmap(2) call to allocate pages from the operating system. The addr is the hint passed through to mmap(2) and size is the size of the buffer to be allocated. The return value is the allocated buffer or MAP_FAILED in the case of an error.

memkind_default_mbind() makes calls the kind's ops.get_mbind_nodemask() and ops.get_mbind_mode() operations to gather inputs and then calls the mbind(2) system call using the results along with and user input ptr and len.

memkind_default_get_mmap_flags() sets flags to MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_ANONYMOUS. See mmap(2) for more information about these flags.

memkind_default_get_mbind_mode() sets mode to MPOL_BIND. See mbind(2) for more information about this flag.

memkind_preferred_get_mbind_mode() sets mode to MPOL_PREFERRED. See mbind(2) for more information about this flag.

memkind_interleave_get_mbind_mode() sets mode to MPOL_INTERLEAVE. See mbind(2) for more information about this flag.

memkind_nohugepage_madvise() calls madvise(2) with the MADV_NOHUGEPAGE advice. See madvise(2) for more information about this option.

memkind_default_get_size() sums the values returned by numa_node_size64() function for every NUMA node set by the .get_node_mask() operation. If the .get_node_mask pointer is NULL then the values are summed for all NUMA nodes.

memkind_posix_check_alignment() can be used to check the alignment value for memkind_posix_memalign() to ensure that is abides by the POSIX requirements: alignment must be a power of 2 at least as large as sizeof(void *).
