+|Name|
+**********
+
+|Name| is a remap plug-in that allows a request to be multiplexed one or more times and sent
to
+different remap entries. Both headers and body (in case of POST or PUT methods, only) are
copied
+into the new requests.
+
+Description
+===========
+
+Actions:
+
+#. Adds ``X-Multiplexer: original`` header into client's request.
+#. Copies client's request (bodies are copied by transforming the request)
+#. Changes ``Host`` header of the copy according to ``pparam`` from the remap rule.
+#. Changes ``X-Multiplexer header`` to "copy".
+#. Sends the copied request with :code:`TSHttpConnect`.
+
+|Name| dispatches the request in background without blocking the original request. Multiplexed
+responses are drained and discarded.
+
+A global timeout can be overwritten through ``multiplexer__timeout`` environment variable
representing how many nanoseconds to wait. A default 1s timeout is hard-coded.
+
+Please use ``multiplexer`` tag for debugging purposes. While debugging, multiplexed requests
and
+responses are printed into the logs.
+
+Multiplexer produces the following statistics consumed with ``traffic_ctl``:
+
+*  failures: number of failed multiplexed requests
+*  hits: number of successful multiplexed requests
+*  requests: total number of multiplexed requests
+*  time(avg): average time taken between multiplexed requests and their responses
+*  timeouts: number of multiplexed requests which timed-out
+*  size(avg): average size of multiplexed responses
+
+Example remap.config::
+
+    map http://www.example.com/a http://www.example.com/ @plugin=multiplexer.so @pparam=host1.example.com
+    map http://www.example.com/b http://www.example.com/ @plugin=multiplexer.so @pparam=host2.example.com
+    map http://www.example.com/c http://www.example.com/ @plugin=multiplexer.so @pparam=host1.example.com
@pparam=host2.example.com

+Implementation
+==============
+
+Parsing Chunk Encoded Data
+--------------------------
+
+|Name| parses chunked data with its own home brew parser. In the parser :code:`size_` is
the size of
+a chunk to be consumed. The local variable / parameter :code:`size` is raw input size as
read from an
+:code:`TSIOBufferBlock`. The "size states" are marked blue.
+
+.. uml::
+   :align: center
+
+   @startuml
+
+   skinparam state {
+      backgroundColor<<SIZE_STATE>> SkyBlue
+   }
+
+   state kSize <<SIZE_STATE>>
+   kSize : Accumulate size_\nfrom hex input.
+   [*] --> kSize
+   kSize --> kSize : hex digit
+   kSize --> kDataN : CR,size_ > 0
+   kSize --> kEndN : CR, size_ == 0
+   kSize --> kInvalid : *
+
+   state kDataN <<SIZE_STATE>>
+   kDataN --> kData : LF
+   kDataN --> kInvalid : *
+   kDataN : ASSERT(size_ > 0)
+
+   state kEndN <<SIZE_STATE>>
+   kEndN --> kEnd : LF
+   kEndN --> kInvalid : *
+
+   kData : Consume size_\nbytes of input.
+   kData --> kSizeR : Input consumed
+
+   state kSizeR <<SIZE_STATE>>
+   kSizeR --> kSizeN : CR
+   kSizeR --> kInvalid : *
+
+   state kSizeN <<SIZE_STATE>>
+   kSizeN --> kSize : LF
+   kSizeN --> kInvalid : *
