glb is a simple user-space TCP connection balancer made with scalability and
performance in mind. It was inspired by pen, but unlike pen its functionality
is limited only to balancing generic TCP connections.
* list of backend servers is configurable in runtime.
* supports server "draining", i.e. does not allocate new connections to server,
but does not kill existing ones, waiting for them to end gracefully.
* on Linux 2.6 and higher glb uses epoll API for ultimate performance.
* glb is multithreaded, so it can utilize multiple CPU cores. In fact even on a
single core CPU using several threads can significantly improve performance
when using poll()-based IO.
* connections are distributed proportionally to weights assigned to backend
