Re: jemalloc SEGV problem
I checked the implementation i found the line because of which this
problem is noticed.
* No usable runs. Create a new chunk from which to allocate the run.
1. chunk = arena_chunk_alloc(arena);
2. if (chunk == NULL)
3. return (NULL);
4. run = (arena_run_t *)((uintptr_t)chunk + (arena_chunk_header_npages <<
In the above code see the line no 4 where 'run' is calculated , i
think its doing some alignment of
the memory allocated i am not sure, if i change the line number '4' as below:
run = (arena_run_t *)((uintptr_t)chunk + (arena_chunk_header_npages <<
If i change the pagesize_2pow to 19 it works fine.
Since in my environment pagesize_2pow is calculated as value 11.
I changed only one line in the code rest all is same. The above line
appears in arena_run_alloc() function.
Could you please tell me what is the line.no 4 trying to do??
Thanks in Advance,
