bleh someone is trying to convince me to deploy apps in production using jemalloc instead of glibc malloc. I really do not trust nonstandard malloc implementations.
@dthompson I'm using jemalloc right now. It's much better for Ruby
@Gargron it's such a fundamental thing that to swap it out for someone's random thing on github seems crazy!
@dthompson Redis uses jemalloc. It's not a random thing.
@Gargron I have many disagreements with the redis maintainer. if it is so good why isn't it standard?
@dthompson I don't know. But I am surprised to hear that. Redis is like the pinnacle of great software in my opinion. Antirez is amazing.
@Gargron I like redis enough, but antirez is a jerk.
@Gargron I trust glibc, I don't trust some random github project.
