Hoard is a fast, scalable and memory-efficient allocator for multiprocessors. It solves the heap contention problem caused when multiple threads call dynamic memory allocation functions like malloc() and free() (or new and delete), and can dramatically improve the performance of multithreaded programs running on multiprocessors. it is a drop-in replacement for malloc(), etc., so you don't have to change your source code.
