Scalable Memory Allocator

Both the debug and release versions of Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) consists of two dynamic shared libraries, one with general support and the other with a scalable memory allocator. The latter is distinguished by malloc in its name. For example, the release versions for Windows* OS are tbb.dll and tbbmalloc.dll respectively. Applications may choose to use only the general library, or only the scalable memory allocator, or both. See the links below for more information on memory allocation.
