SLAB vs SLUB Allocator


There are two main types of memory allocators namely SLAB & SLUB.
What are the differences between the two?
Suggest some possible scenarios where each of them can be used.

Regards,
Prabagaran.

Hi syg00,

Absolutely not homework.

Kindly give some clue regarding the difference between SLAB & SLUB?

Regards,
Prabagaran.

looks like homework to me too. If you told us a bit more about what you've done so far, and what you're trying to achieve, then it will sound less like homework.

Until then, a very very very quick google brings this that looks like a possible answer:
