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.

If you are more interested about my test VM Lab setup/network kindly watch these videos:

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.
03 TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulator Jitter Feature configuration [CDN]

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-Butterscotch Bandwidth saver software development - Update: 28-Oct-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is my first software development update of TOFFEE-Butterscotch. In my first TOFFEE-Butterscotch news update I have introduced about TOFFEE-Butterscotch research, project specifications, use-cases, etc. Introducing TOFFEE-Butterscotch Alerts: These are simple packet counters which corresponds to the filter type. For example if the incoming TCP-SYN packets are blocked then its corresponding alert counter will increment whenever such a packet arrives and gets filtered (dropped).

TOFFEE Benchmarks :: TOFFEE-1.1.28 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is the TOFFEE WAN Optimization benchmarks of the TOFFEE version: TOFFEE-1.1.28. This is the current TOFFEE development version till date (2-Jul-2016). This is a HPC TOFFEE variant meant for high-end custom build servers and high-end desktops (i.e High Performance Computing a.k.a HPC). TOFFEE built this way often needs customized kernel compilation and build such as processor specific and hardware specific tune-ups since it is highly CPU intensive (if not offloaded via Hardware Accelerator Cards).

Now I supported and finished complete GUI support of these parameters so that you can configure, store, reboot and the same will restore upon reboot. Besides I complete the TOFFEE-Mocha Big-Picture page. The Big picture is an interface where you can find all the configuration (or settings) of the TOFFEE-Mocha. This is almost similar to CISCO device show all command but in graphical representation. Sometimes a network admin can also print the Big Picture page and paste it near to the device to refer its settings.

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment with web-proxy cache ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
If you want to deploy TOFFEE along with a web-proxy cache (such as Squid Proxy) you can deploy the same as shown below. TOFFEE does not cache files. TOFFEE does packet level network optimization. So if you want caching your web content you can use transparent mode web-proxy cache intercepting your WAN links. A web-proxy may reduce amount of data being processed (optimized) within these TOFFEE devices and so reduce the CPU overheads and improve its performance.

Why TOFFEE is forked from TrafficSqueezer ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TrafficSqueezer is an open-source WAN Optimization project. TrafficSqueezer is mainly a research project which is started around mid-2006. It is initially started as a research (or prototype) code even before it is officially registered in Sourceforge.net. But this code is just primitive user-space raw socket modules. This is later refined and a pre-alpha version is created. Followed by which Alpha release. This prototype code is moved from user-space to Linux Kernel (Kernel Space) and then the journey begin in terms of making a serious WAN Optimization solution. Once the pre-beta and beta releases are complete the mainstream series is started.

A study on WAN Optimization Techniques ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
There are various techniques with which one can optimize their WAN Network Data. Any long distance communication can be considered as WAN Network. A decade ago any network connecting two countries, considered as a WAN network, and a network within a city as MAN and soon. But these days in general any long distance communication is considered as WAN Network. Such as your Mobile communication networks, Satellite networks, Space Networks (Deep space networks), Trans-Atlantic cable networks, etc.
