Topic: jemalloc 5.1.0

Hi Remi,

I noticed that the jemalloc version in EPEL is far behind (v3.6.0, released on March 31, 2014) and that Redis 4.0.11 and 5.0-rc4 depends on this older version of jemalloc. Note that Redis 4.0.11 ships with jemalloc 4.0.3 and Redis 5.0-rc4 ships with jemalloc 5.1.0 (see the deps/jemalloc/VERSION file in the tarballs).

Could you perhaps backport the Fedora one (v5.1.0) to your repo (for RHEL / CentOS)? jemalloc 5.1.0 seems to be a good candidate for applications to upgrade, see the Changelog: "Given the long and successful production runs, this release is likely a good candidate for applications to upgrade, from both jemalloc 5.0 and before".

Thanks for all the great work!

Re: jemalloc 5.1.0

I will rather think to use to bundled library instead.

Desktop: Fedora 29 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev
Laptop:  Fedora 28 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi (SCL only)
Hosting Server: CentOS 6.10 x86_64 with EPEL, remi, remi-php72 and remi-php72-test

Re: jemalloc 5.1.0

New build (5.0.0~RC4-2) available in remi-test use the upstream bundled library.

Desktop: Fedora 29 x86_64 + rpmfusion + remi-test + remi-dev

Seems to work, thanks!

Is there a simple way to request an update for jemalloc in EPEL? We're testing libvips in combination with jemalloc 3.6.0 (under heavy load) and see a much better memory usage than the default allocator in glibc.

We'd like to test with jemalloc 5.1.0, but prefer to not build the dependencies ourselves.
