[dpdk-users] Regarding rte_malloc and linux malloc

I have some basic doubt about DPDK memory allocation.
1. rte_malloc will allocate memory from hugepage memory ?
2. If we use normal malloc, this will be allocated from heap. will this
allocation also useful for dpdk?
3. Or for better performance we have to use only rte_malloc?

Please provide your inputs.

Thanks & Regards
