This talk presents an extensive experimental study that shows that a good general-purpose allocator is better than almost all commonly-used custom allocators, with one exception: regions (a.k.a., pools, arenas, zones). However, it shows that regions consume much more memory than necessary. The talk then introduces reaps (regions + heaps), which combine the flexibility and space efficiency of heaps with the performance of regions.
