Detailed Description

This API provides an interface for a general purpose dynamic memory manager. The API resembles the standard malloc()/calloc()/free() interface.

The standard library dynamic memory allocation functions are not used directly to allow the user to use a different memory management backend than the one that the standard library provides.

To change the memory management backend, replace the mesh_mem_<backend>.c to the desired implementation. The default backend is mesh_mem_stdlib.c.

Macro Definition Documentation

◆ MESH_MEM_SIZE_MIN

#define MESH_MEM_SIZE_MIN   NRF_MESH_UPPER_TRANSPORT_PDU_SIZE_MAX

The smallest size of dynamic memory that the mesh requires to operate.

If the dynamic memory available is less than NRF_MESH_UPPER_TRANSPORT_PDU_SIZE_MAX, the device cannot receive full length upper transport PDUs and may not function properly.

Function Documentation

◆ mesh_mem_init()

void mesh_mem_init ( void  )

Initialize the memory manager.

Note
This API is called by nrf_mesh_init().

◆ mesh_mem_alloc()

void* mesh_mem_alloc ( size_t  size)

Allocate size bytes and return a pointer to the allocated memory.

Note
The memory is not initialized.
Parameters
[in]sizeSize in bytes of the memory to allocate.
Returns
A pointer to the allocated memory, or NULL if no memory was allocated.

◆ mesh_mem_free()

void mesh_mem_free ( void *  ptr)

Free the allocated memory.

Parameters
[in]ptrPointer to memory that shall be freed. The pointer must be previously allocated by a call to mesh_mem_alloc() or mesh_mem_calloc(). Otherwise, the behavior is undefined.

◆ mesh_mem_calloc()

void* mesh_mem_calloc ( size_t  nmemb,
size_t  size 
)

Allocate memory for an array of nmemb elements of size bytes.

Note
The memory returned is set to zero.
Parameters
[in]nmembNumber of members in the array.
[in]sizeSize in bytes of the individual members.
Returns
A pointer to the allocated memory, or NULL if no memory was allocated.
