    Or you could use this (which is a bit broken on modern kernels, but
    provides lots of interesting detail):

    I don't have any particular "terrible" workloads for SLUB. But my
    attempts to simply boot with all three allocators to init=/bin/bash in,
    say, lguest show a fair margin for SLOB.

    Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
