I researched HOARD:


The Hoard memory allocator is a fast, scalable, and memory-efficient memory allocator. It runs on a variety of platforms, including Linux, Solaris, and Windows. Hoard is a drop-in replacement for malloc() that can dramatically improve application performance, especially for multithreaded programs running on multiprocessors.

Is this purely an OS change; or does one have to make changes to the VM source to use HOARD instead of malloc etc?
