The SLUB Allocator Internals: What is the Difference between the SLAB and the SLUB? - JoonSoo Kim, LG Electronics

The SLUB allocator is a drop-in replacement for the SLAB code and has been used as the default option in the mainline kernel since 2007.

However we usually don’t easily understand the SLUB allocator internals, because almost every textbook just explains historic SLAB allocator.

This talk will deal with following questions about the SLUB.

  • "What is the SLUB?"
  • "How is it implemented?"
  • "What is the difference between the SLAB and the SLUB"

This talk also follows up the current developing trend for the SLUB and introduces several tutorials for the SLUB developing and debugging.

This talk will be intended to provide information about the SLUB for kernel developer and just basic understanding of kernel is required to figure out.
