core: fix memory allocation issues
Two problems have been identified that caused that gluster's memory usage were twice higher than required. 1. An off by 1 error caused that all objects allocated from the memory pools were taken from a pool bigger than required. Since each pool corresponds to a size equal to a power of two, this was wasting half of the available memory. 2. The header information used for accounting on each memory object was not taken into consideration when searching for a suitable memory pool. It was added later when each individual block was allocated. This made this space "invisible" to memory accounting. Credits: Thanks to Nithya Balachandran for identifying this problem and testing this patch. Fixes: bz#1722802 Change-Id: I90e27ad795fe51ca11c13080f62207451f6c138c Signed-off-by: Xavi Hernandez <>
