smux

Introduction

Smux ( Simple MUltipleXing) is a multiplexing library for Golang. It relies on an underlying connection to provide reliability and ordering, such as TCP or KCP, and provides stream-oriented multiplexing. The original intention of this library is to power the connection management for kcp-go.

Features

  1. Token bucket controlled receiving, which provides smoother bandwidth graph(see picture below).
  2. Session-wide receive buffer, shared among streams, fully controlled overall memory usage.
  3. Minimized header(8Bytes), maximized payload.
  4. Well-tested on millions of devices in kcptun.
  5. Builtin fair queue traffic shaping.
  6. Per-stream sliding window to control congestion.(protocol version 2+).

    cmdFIN(1)
    cmdPSH(2)
    cmdNOP(3)
    cmdUPD(4)	// only supported on version 2

Usage


func client() {
    // Get a TCP connection
    conn, err := net.Dial(...)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // Setup client side of smux
    session, err := smux.Client(conn, nil)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // Open a new stream
    stream, err := session.OpenStream()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // Stream implements io.ReadWriteCloser
    stream.Write([]byte("ping"))
    stream.Close()
    session.Close()
}

func server() {
    // Accept a TCP connection
    conn, err := listener.Accept()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // Setup server side of smux
    session, err := smux.Server(conn, nil)
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // Accept a stream
    stream, err := session.AcceptStream()
    if err != nil {
        panic(err)
    }

    // Listen for a message
    buf := make([]byte, 4)
    stream.Read(buf)
    stream.Close()
    session.Close()
}
