       nutcracker - Fast, light-weight proxy for memcached and Redis


       nutcracker [options]


       nutcracker, also known as twemproxy (pronounced "two-em-proxy"), is a fast and lightweight
       proxy for the memcached and Redis protocols.

       It was primarily built to reduce the connection count on backend caching servers,  but  it
       has a number of features, such as:

       ·      Maintains persistent server connections to backend servers.

       ·      Enables pipelining of requests and responses.

       ·      Supports multiple server pools simultaneously.

       ·      Shard data automatically across multiple servers.

       ·      Supports multiple hashing modes including consistent hashing and distribution.

       ·      High-availability by disabling nodes on failures.

       ·      Observability through stats exposed on stats monitoring port.
