The purpose of the malloc tests is to compare various malloc approaches to original.
Baseline: system malloc

Original approach: has one free list that is centralized and searched linearly Original Malloc Second approach: has an array of free lists, that is shared among cores. Array Malloc Third approach: distributed version of single free list Fourth approach: distributed version of array of free lists

Organization of results:


The parameters in the tests are: - machine_name: ( [willis](willis machine), [Seans](seans machine), [VMS](VMS machine), [Ninas](ninas machine), [Biaos](biaos machine) ) - Malloc algorithm: (single, array, single_distr, array_distr) - number of allocations per thread - number of threads - chunk size: (fixed small, fixed large, random size)
