tbb memory allocator

Controlling memory consumption with Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) scalable allocator

The Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) library provides an alternative way to allocate dynamic memory - Intel TBB scalable allocator (tbbmalloc). Its purpose is to provide better performance and scalability for memory allocation/deallocation operations in multithreaded applications, compared to the default allocator. But performance improvement comes at a price: increased memory consumption.
