             Summary: Investigate jemalloc as a possible malloc for mesos
                 Key: MESOS-7876
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MESOS-7876
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Benno Evers
            Assignee: Benno Evers


It is currently very hard to debug memory issues, in particular memory leaks, 
in mesos.

An alluring way to improve the situation would be to change the default malloc 
to jemalloc, which has built-in heap-tracking capabilities.

However, some care needs to be taken when considering to change such a 
fundamental part of mesos:

  * Would such a switch have any adverse impact on performance?
  * Is it available and will it compile on all our target platforms?
  * Is the jemalloc-licensing compatible with bundling as third-party library?
