Topic: Heap Usage in WolfMQTT


I am new to the WolfMqtt library and I am in the phase of evaluating it for the usage as mqtt v5 client library.
I will use WolfMqtt based on Zephyr OS and I was able to get the two sample applications in Zephyr folder to run successfully.

So here is my questions:
1- One of my hard requirements is no heap usage at all, and I noticed that there are couple of malloc calls or to be more specifically WOLFMQTT_MALLOC used, so the first question is there any way to configure the WolfMqtt to not use the heap ? I couldn't find anything in documentation discussing the memory usage of WolfMqtt.

2- In case of TLS Usage and the integration of WolfSSL with my WolfMQTT application, I have seen that there this configuration parameter WOLFSSL_NO_MALLOC that disables the heap memory utilization, so my question is: Is my understanding correct that this configuration parameter completely disables the heap utilization, since I have seen alot of malloc calls in WolfSSL not protected by WOLFSSL_NO_MALLOC conditional compilation.

Hello mabduljawad

Thanks for joining the wolfSSL forums! The wolfMQTT library will only use malloc if configured to allocate MQTTv5 properties dynamically. By default, the library is stack-only.

For wolfSSL, check out the static memory guide:

Could you tell us a bit about your MQTT project? Feel free to email for a more private discussion.
