Gnet is lock-free during the entire runtime, which speeds gnet up regardless of the synchronization issue.
Concise & Easy-to-use APIs
Gnet provides concise and easy-to-use APIs for users, it only exposes the essential APIs and takes over most of the tough work for users, minimizes the complexity of business code so that developers are able to concentrate on business logic instead of the underlying implementation.
Gnet supports multiple protocols/IPC mechanism: TCP, UDP and Unix Domain Socket, enabling you to develop a variety of networking applications.
Gnet is devised as a cross-platform framework, as a result, it works faultlessly on multiple platforms: Linux, FreeBSD, DragonFly BSD, Windows.
Gnet supports multiple load-balancing algorithms: Round-Robin, Source-Addr-Hash and Least-Connections, enabling users to choose the most suitable load-balancing algorithm based on their business scenarios.
