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.

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.

CDN Hosting ↗

It is quite interesting that there are few web hosting firms are offering direct CDN based hosting services. Since it is a direct CDN based hosting, it is cheap, extremely easy or transparent CDN service. It is transparent, since each time you publish your content in the hosting web-server (origin server), it is immediately is in sync automatically in the user-serving CDN caching machines. Since the hosting vendor and the CDN vendor are all the same, it is also easy to use their services. There is no incompatibility issues, interoperability issues, and better integrated analytics, are all the benefits of CDN Hosting services.

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.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 20-Oct-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I was doing some specific tests in my TOFFEE and TOFFEE-DataCenter (WAN optimization) scenarios such as variable upload and download speeds. And I was also doing some experiments with speedtest.net and I did some of these tests with TOFFEE-Mocha. I realized there is a case that I can introduce asymmetric constant delays so that you can get different download speed and a different upload speed. And in some cases much faster download speeds and relatively slower upload speeds.

Earlier the TOFFEE is intended to work on IoT devices, Satellite Networks, branch office/SOHO deployments. In most cases the users may deploy just one or couple of TOFFEE devices per site. But in the case of TOFFEE-DataCenter, users can scale-up deploying the same in multiple servers in a sort of distributed cluster computing scenario. Besides the core TOFFEE-DataCenter components (such as packet processing engine/framework), I need to do lot of changes in its Graphical User Interface (GUI) too to address these new requirements.

Here is my home lab monthly power-consumption readings for research. This will help to measure and monitor the overall power usage and assess the power requirements. This will help me in future purchases such as UPS, battery upgrades and so on. And as well remove replace old obsolete hardware with new less power-consuming devices.

Large Infrastructure or ISP setup: In case if you are an ISP and interested in deploying a large customer WAN Optimized network or an add-on enhanced (WAN Optimized) network for select few customers, then you can deploy something as shown below. Although this case is not meant for hobby/DIY users. This is a feasible solution for high-end professional application and the same can be deployed.
