  1. The SystemC standard says: 5.10.8 Multiple event notifications A given event shall have no more than one pending notification. If function notify is called for an event that already has a notification pending, only the notification scheduled to occur at the earliest time shall survive. The notification scheduled to occur at the later time shall be cancelled (or never be scheduled in the first place). An immediate notification is taken to occur earlier than a delta notification, and a delta notification earlier than a timed notification. This is irrespective of the order in which function notify is called. If I run the following example the simulation stops after 100000000 ps as intended, however, the memory usage of the program increases rapidly to 1GB and more. #include <iostream> #include <systemc.h> SC_MODULE(Tester) { sc_event event; uint64_t counter = 0; SC_CTOR(Tester) { SC_METHOD(process); sensitive << event; } void process() { if (counter == 100000000) sc_stop(); counter++; event.notify(1, SC_MS); event.notify(1, SC_PS); } }; int sc_main(int argc, char **argv) { Tester tester("Tester"); sc_start(); return 0; } When both event notifications are swapped the memory leak is gone. When SC_MS is replaced by SC_US, the memory usage increases a lot slower. The program was tested with the latest SystemC version from GitHub as well as SystemC 2.3.3 on the WSL with GCC 8 and GCC 6.
  2. Dear all, to define extensions of the generic payload, I defined also a memory manager class, implementing the tlm_mm_interface. I googled and tried almost all implementations available out there - they all generate memory leaks (as bad as 80 bytes in 2 blocks, according to Valgrind). Can anybody help me? The issue seems to be caused by the allocate method. Header file: class mem_manager : public tlm::tlm_mm_interface{ public: std::vector<tlm::tlm_generic_payload *> free_list; tlm::tlm_generic_payload * allocate(); void free(tlm::tlm_generic_payload *); tlm::tlm_generic_payload * ptr; private: ~mem_manager(); }; Implementation: mem_manager::~mem_manager(){ } tlm::tlm_generic_payload * mem_manager::allocate(){ if (!free_list.empty()) { ptr = free_list.back(); free_list.pop_back(); cout<<"free list not empty"<<endl; } else { ptr = new tlm::tlm_generic_payload(this); cout<<"free list empty"<<endl; } return ptr; } void mem_manager::free(tlm::tlm_generic_payload * trans){ free_list.push_back((tlm::tlm_generic_payload *)trans); } Example of code using the memory manager: tlm::tlm_generic_payload * trans; sc_time time; mem = new mem_manager(); trans = mem->allocate(); payload_data = new reg_extension; payload_data->value = sc_bv<16>("01"); payload_data->reset = 1; trans->set_data_length(sizeof(register_data_t)); trans->set_auto_extension(payload_data); trans->set_address(0); trans->set_write(); initiator_socket->b_transport(*trans, time); if(trans->is_response_ok()){ } else{ cout<<"Error!"<<endl; } Regards, S.
