Collection of resources that are kept ready to use, rather than acquired on use and released afterwards.
Special cases of pools are connection pools, thread pools, and memory pools.
Data structure that implements a set abstract data type, a structure that can map keys to values.
The algorithm is ideally suited for fixed memory allocation.
Linear collection of data elements whose order is not given by their physical placement in memory.
It can also be slow, and with a naïve allocator, wasteful, to allocate memory separately for each new element, a problem generally solved using memory pools.
Bundle of three low-level system libraries written in C and developed mainly by GNOME.
GLib implements functions that provide threads, thread programming and related facilities such as primitive variable access, mutexes, asynchronous queues, secure memory pools, message passing and logging, hook functions (callback registering) and timers.
Graphics application programming interface for Microsoft Windows.
Pool: Describes how the resource is managed by the runtime and where it is stored. In the Default pool the resource will exist only in device memory. Resources in the managed pool will be stored in system memory, and will be sent to the device when required. Resources in system memory pool will only exist in system memory. Finally, the scratch pool is basically the same as the system memory pool, but resources are not bound by hardware restrictions.

Memory allocation and memory pool functionality
Phenomenon in which storage space, main storage or secondary storage, is used inefficiently, reducing capacity or performance and often both.
For example, in dynamic memory allocation, memory pools drastically cut internal fragmentation by spreading the space overhead over a larger number of objects.
Grouping together of resources for the purposes of maximizing advantage or minimizing risk to the users.
Data structure used in a scheme for dynamic memory allocation.
It is most suitable for allocating from a memory pool, where all objects have the same size.
Act of creating a virtual (rather than actual) version of something at the same abstraction level, including virtual computer hardware platforms, storage devices, and computer network resources.
Memory virtualization: aggregating random-access memory (RAM) resources from networked systems into a single memory pool
