Poor placement of data blocks in memory may negatively impact application performance because of an increase in the cache conflict miss rate [18]. For dynamically allocated structures this placement is typically determined by the memory allocator. Cache index-oblivious allocators may inadvertently place blocks on a restricted fraction of the available cache indexes, artificially and needlessly increasing the conflict miss rate. While some allocators are less vulnerable to this phenomena, no… CONTINUE READING
