I think you are talking about the local cluster driver. The
information can be found in our README.md file:

* Local Driver

   This driver just makes use of UNIX IPC mechanism to manage the membership
   on a single box, where we start multiple 'sheep' processes to simulate the
   cluster. It is very easy and fast setup and especially useful to test
   functionality without involving any other software.

   To set up a 3 node cluster using local driver in one liner bash
with debug mode:

      $ mkdir /path/to/store
      $ for i in 0 1 2; do sheep -c local -d /path/to/store/$i -z $i
-p 700$i;sleep 1;done

As the description says, you can launch multiple sheep daemon with "-c
local" option on a single box for testing purpose. It would be
convenient for testing e.g. when you want to try the combination of
OpenStack components + sheepdog.
