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.
