Hoard is a scalable memory allocator (malloc replacement) for
multithreaded applications. Hoard can dramatically improve your
application's performance on multicore machines. No changes to your
source are necessary; just link it in. Hoard scales linearly up to at
least 64 processors. Supported platforms include Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X, and

This release incorporates a number of fixes and improvements: better per-thread allocation, improving speed for Unix platforms that do not support __thread; interception of the Solaris threads API (thr_*) to work with older Solaris programs; a fix for a possible race condition; and increased checking to protect against heap corruption or other errors. Hoard now uses GNU-supported hooks on platforms with glibc (especially Linux), allowing it to work better with legacy programs.

The fast path for allocation was streamlined,
substantially accelerating both 32-bit and 64-bit
code. pthread_* based thread-specific data is now
used for x86-64, where it's faster. These combine
to improve benchmark performance on x86-32 by up
to 13%, and on x86-64 by up to 32%.
