Ranch is a socket acceptor pool for TCP protocols.


Ranch aims to provide everything you need to accept TCP connections with
a **small** code base and **low latency** while being easy to use directly
as an application or to **embed** into your own.

Ranch provides a **modular** design, letting you choose which transport
and protocol are going to be used for a particular listener. Listeners
accept and manage connections on one port, and include facilities to
limit the number of **concurrent** connections. Connections are sorted
into **pools**, each pool having a different configurable limit.

Ranch also allows you to **upgrade** the acceptor pool without having
to close any of the currently opened sockets.
