DOCUMENTATION 》 TOFFEE-DataCenter a TOFFEE variant for Data Center applications

TOFFEE-DataCenter a TOFFEE variant for Data Center applications: TOFFEE Data-Center (a variant of TOFFEE) is specifically meant for Data Center, Cluster Computing, HPC, SDN, VM applications. TOFFEE is built in Linux Kernel core. TOFFEE Data-Center will have basic minimal kernel module plus TOFFEE user-space components. The entire packet processing is done within user-space. And these modules can be spawned according to the load, and system's hardware capabilities. In a typical Gigabit system, you can have 10-100 such threads executing simultaneously. And if required based on the load, new threads can be spawned dynamically. With high-speed load balancing systems, you can build a complete WAN Optimization hardware cluster based on TOFFEE Data-Center variant. Here is an example of TOFFEE Data-Center deployment in which TOFFEE Data-Center is deployed in single or in multiple servers with optional load-balancers.
* Here are the TOFFEE-DataCenter supported features.

My sample Wireshark packet capture files for research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I have a huge repository (or collection) of sample Wireshark packet capture files for reference. I use them extensively for research and development of TOFFEE as well to understand various protocol PDUs and protocol standards. I personally collected various test captures via Wireshark during my test and experimental research setup during the course of TOFFEE development. Say if you are a student and learning Networking and or say VoIP data and VoIP packets, you can analyse my VoIP sample Wireshark captures. Or in other case assume you are doing some quick research (or development) and want to refer few handful of VoIP packets then you can download and analyse my sample packet capture files.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 16-June-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I started TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development on 1-June-2016. I took the existing TOFFEE components as a base. Although the TOFFEE-Mocha is entirely an independent fresh Open-Source WAN Emulation solution. Ever since I am in the process of defining and inventing features. So far I come up with the most important feature which is expected to be present in any WAN Emulation software is the packet delay option.

VPN Network Optimization via TOFFEE WAN Optimization ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
VPN Networks may degrade network performance due to various packet processing overheads such as encryption and by adding extra network protocol header(s) (such as IPv4/IPv6, IPSec, etc). This may inflate near MTU sized packets and causes excessive packet fragmentation. Here are the few examples of packet processing involved in a VPN (or a VPN like) Tunnel. With TOFFEE you can optimize these packets even before they get processed on to a VPN device. TOFFEE optimizes packet contents (application payload and transport headers) so that these TOFFEE optimized packets when they get processed by VPN devices (or VPN software stack) they may never need further packet fragmentation. Here is a deployment scenario of TOFFEE with VPN devices.

Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
My 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM hard-drive suddenly started making mild clicking noise. I found this happening since morning. I was suspicious that something wrong in this drive and when I opened the Linux Disks app, I can find the cause of this issue. The disk is increasingly getting read errors. Besides I can see various other parameters such as Power-On Hours, Temperature, Head flying hours, etc.

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.

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.
