I've just added in some debugging facilities to Samba's talloc
pool-allocator, based on ideas from glib and Apache.
In CVS HEAD you can now say
# smbcontrol smbd pool-usage
and all smbd processes will report how much memory they are using in
each different allocation pool. At the moment the results are often
not very interesting, because a lot of code still calls malloc
I hope that if code changes over to using talloc then in addition to
the simplicity talloc gives, it will also be useful to see to what
purpose memory is allocated, and whether there are any long-running
The daffodils are coming. Are you?
