Using the Hoard Memory Allocator with Asterisk
Install the Hoard Memory Allocator
Download Hoard from http://www.hoard.org/ either via a package or the source tarball.
If downloading the source, unpack the tarball and follow the instructions in the README file to build libhoard for your platform.
Run ./configure in the root of the asterisk source directory, passing the --with-hoard option specifying the location of the libhoard shared library.
Note that we don't specify the full path to libhoard.so, just the directory where it resides.
Enable Hoard in menuselect
Run 'make menuselect' in the root of the asterisk source distribution. Under 'Compiler Flags' select the 'USE_HOARD_ALLOCATOR' option. If the option is not available (shows up with XXX next to it) this means that configure was not able to find libhoard.so. Check that the path you passed to the --with-hoard option is correct. Re-run ./configure with the correct option and then repeat this step.
Make and install asterisk
Run the standard build commands:
# make # make install
