1jemalloc is a general purpose malloc(3) implementation that emphasizes
2fragmentation avoidance and scalable concurrency support.  jemalloc first came
3into use as the FreeBSD libc allocator in 2005, and since then it has found its
4way into numerous applications that rely on its predictable behavior.  In 2010
5jemalloc development efforts broadened to include developer support features
6such as heap profiling, Valgrind integration, and extensive monitoring/tuning
7hooks.  Modern jemalloc releases continue to be integrated back into FreeBSD,
8and therefore versatility remains critical.  Ongoing development efforts trend
9toward making jemalloc among the best allocators for a broad range of demanding
10applications, and eliminating/mitigating weaknesses that have practical
11repercussions for real world applications.
