Sure, most of my time working on sheepdog without any other softwares, we have a
local driver and use process to simulate a node on the same box.

With local driver, we use traditional shared memory and signal infrastructure to
monitor the membership. Local driver can support as many as 1024 simulated nodes

To set up a 3 nodes sheepdog cluster in one liner:

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