gnetis an event-driven networking framework that is fast and lightweight. It makes direct epoll and kqueue syscalls rather than using the standard Go net package and works in a similar manner as netty and libuv, which makes
gnetachieve a much higher performance than Go net.
gnetis not designed to displace the standard Go net package, but to create a networking server framework for Go that performs on par with Redis and Haproxy for networking packets handling.
gnetsells itself as a high-performance, lightweight, non-blocking, event-driven networking framework written in pure Go which works on transport layer with TCP/UDP protocols and Unix Domain Socket , so it allows developers to implement their own protocols(HTTP, RPC, WebSocket, Redis, etc.) of application layer upon
gnetfor building diversified network applications, for instance, you get an HTTP Server or Web Framework if you implement HTTP protocol upon
gnetwhile you have a Redis Server done with the implementation of Redis protocol upon
gnetand so on.
