malloc_stats — print memory allocation statistics
prints (on standard error) statistics about memory allocated
by malloc(3) and related
functions. For each arena (allocation area), this function
prints the total amount of memory allocated and the total
number of bytes consumed by in-use allocations. (These two
values correspond to the
uordblks fields retrieved
by mallinfo(3).) In addition,
the function prints the sum of these two statistics for all
arenas, and the maximum number of blocks and bytes that were
ever simultaneously allocated using mmap(2).
For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
More detailed information about memory allocations in the main arena can be obtained using mallinfo(3).
