    Lots of people have asked me where they can get this article:

    The Slab Allocator: An Object-Caching Kernel Memory Allocator
    Jeff Bonwick (Sun Microsystems).
    Presented at: USENIX Summer 1994 Technical Conference

    Most university libraries supporting a nearby computer science
    department will carry the "Proceedings of the USENIX Technical
    Conference". That's where I got my copy.
