From this library, users can enable/disable servers and frontends, manage backends, query stats, and much more.
HAProxy is a multi-process daemon and each process can only be accessed by a distinct stats socket. There isn't any shared memory for all these processes. That means that if a frontend or backend is managed by more than one processes, you have to find which stats socket you need to send the query/command. This makes the life of a sysadmin a bit difficult as he has to keep track of which stats socket to use for a given object(frontend/backend/server).
haproxy-sdk resolves this problem by presenting objects as single entities even when they are managed by multiple processes. It also supports aggregation for various statistics provided by HAProxy. For instance, to report the requests processed by a frontend, it queries all processes which manage that frontend and returns the sum.
