tbbmalloc and libhugetlbfs integration - any update since '09?

Before posting this question, I performed a search on the forum regarding support for huge page backed memory for tbbmalloc.  However, the only hit I received is a question from '09, to which the answer was that tbbmalloc did not support huge pages at the time.

 

Has anything changed in that regard? In past projects, I've been able to make use of huge pages via environment variables with tcmalloc.  It would be nice to have it for tbbmalloc, as well.

hello,

Current tbbmalloc supports huge pages. it can be enabled via API or env variable. Documentaion is here https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/506259, look for TBBMALLOC_USE_HUGE_PAGES parameter/env variable.
