Tune the allocator

Occasionally, application driven data structures have a specific size, and customizing block sizes can greatly improve the memory usage. In this case, you either have to write your own allocator, or contact QNX to obtain a customizable memory allocator.

Use the Bin page to estimate the benefits of a custom block size. First, enter the bin size in the Launch Configuration of the Memory Analysis tool, run the application, and then open the Bins page to explore the results. The resulting graph shows the distribution of the heap object per imaginary blocks, based on the sizes that you selected.
