DOCUMENTATION 》 TOFFEE-Mocha Documentation :: TOFFEE-Mocha - Jitter feature

We need sometimes a distorted test WAN bandwidth since this may occur in real WAN Network due to various reasons. This effect will persist back-and-forth and will affect the WAN Bandwidth. And this is what called as Jitter. The frequency of this irregularity will depend on the problem which the WAN Network experiencing, speed of the WAN Network, packet corruption, packet drops and so on. So to simulate the same I have introduced the new Jitter feature in the TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Simulator. This enables you to throttle the bandwidth almost like a frequency modulated signal. So when Jitter delay is set in TOFFEE-Mocha and you diagnose the network performance graphs, you should get a graph with these characteristics.

My lab test topology: Here is my test lab topology in which TOFFEE-Mocha is deployed. It is connected to my external LAN Network via pfSense router installed as a VM. And along with the same, I have installed TOFFEE-Mocha test/build system and to which a test PC is connected. So the idea is to get network connectivity (external LAN network, host-PC, and Internet) to this test PC via TOFFEE-Mocha and via pfSense router.

Here is my VirtualBox VM installed machines. Notice the machines which are booted:

  • pfSense router
  • TOFFEE-Mocha device
  • test PC

Here are my TOFFEE-Mocha Jitter feature settings. So technically it should flip-flop between 10-15 ms delay with a jitter factor of about 20. Jitter factor works like frequency. Lesser the jitter factor value more is its frequency (flip-flops between the two states) and larger the value lesser the frequency.

Here is my test PC where I managed to mount the remote SMB share(which is my host PC :: 192.168.0.88). And then I started file copy of this test tar-ball(a large sample file around 3GB) from this SMB share to this local VM test PC as shown below. The data-transfer of this file-copy operation should happen via pfSense Router and the TOFFEE-Mocha WAN emulator VM machines.

When we analyze the traffic via pfSense web GUI (connected via management port of the TOFFEE-Mocha device), you can see the traffic pattern. Basically it should flip-flop between two states. The high-bandwidth state is bit shorter than low bandwidth since most of the data gets transferred during this short span of time versus the longer/max delay jitter delay state. For demonstration purposes I set a large jitter factor (frequency). If you want you can adjust this parameter to a much lower value for higher frequencies.

Now by adjusting the jitter range min/max micro-seconds/milli-seconds delay parameters you get a different bandwidth curve in pfSense as shown below.

TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization software development - Update: 19-Aug-2016 ↗
Monday' 06-Jul-2020
This is my next software development update of TOFFEE-DataCenter which I am working since past few weeks. I was very busy in implementing the core TOFFEE-DataCenter components along with prototyping, benchmarking, implementing and testing the same. However today is the first time ever I did a fresh new CLI interface for the upcoming new TOFFEE-DataCenter.

Monday' 06-Jul-2020
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion µ-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research. With TrueBench Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 2B, Raspberry Pi 2 and other embedded SoC devices are benchmarked and you can do a comparative analysis with standard mainstream x86 devices.

As a research experiment I replaced my Intel Core i7 5820K desktop PC with my Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC as my everyday desktop system. This is an attempt to reduce my overall monthly power consumption. As well an attempt to do feasibility tests and research to know how far Mini PC will dominate the market in future and to study the real potential of Mini PCs.

Here is a complete log of my lab battery purchase, service record which I maintain in Google drive. These I use for my home (or my family generic use) as well as a part of my home lab. I maintain a detailed log this way to monitor the failure rate of these batteries. This will allow me to select a specific brand/model which has higher success rate and to monitor any premature failure/expiry. The service log helps me to monitor and schedule the next service routine so that I can maintain these batteries in tip-top condition.
