DOCUMENTATION 》 TOFFEE-Butterscotch a TOFFEE for Home/SOHO Internet/WAN bandwidth

TOFFEE-Butterscotch is a variant of TOFFEE can be used to save and optimize your Home/SOHO Internet/WAN bandwidth. Unlike TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) TOFFEE-Butterscotch is a non peer-to-peer (and asymmetric) network optimization solution. This makes TOFFEE-Butterscotch an ideal tool for all Home and SOHO users. Here is the deployment topology of TOFFEE-Butterscotch deployment. You can deploy the same either before your WiFi router or after your router whichever is feasible as shown below. TOFFEE-Butterscotch Internet WAN Bandwidth Saver topology

For example you can optimize your slow and expensive 3G/4G Mobile networks:

Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
PiPG is a powerful and yet simple Raspberry Pi Network Packet Generator. With PiPG you can now fabricate custom network packets and send via any Network Interface. Supports all kinds of standard Network Ports (Linux Kernel driver generated) such as Physical Network Interface ports, and an array of virtual ports such as loopback, tun/tap, bridge, etc. indispensable tool for: Network Debugging, Testing and Performance analysis Network Administrators Students Network R&D Protocol Analysis and Study Network Software Development Compliance Testing Ethical Hackers you can generate the following test traffic: L2-Bridging/Slow protocols: STP, LACP, OAM, LLDP, EAP, etc Routing protocols: RIPv1, RIPv2, IGMPv1, IGMPv2, OSPF, IS-IS, EIGRP, HSRP, VRRP, etc Proprietary protocols: CISCO, etc Generic: IPv4 TCP/UDP, etc Malformed random packets

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 19-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I refined the first page consolidated report graphs. TOFFEE-Mocha (unlike TOFFEE) is a WAN Emulator, so the graphs are supposed to highlight this purpose and should display the overall network activity. Unlike TOFFEE, the TOFFEE-Mocha report should contain in general what is received versus what is sent across the wire. In case if the packet drop feature is enabled, you should see few missing bytes and packets. Similarly in future I may support packet duplication feature, in that case you may see more packets/bytes sent versus the packets/bytes actually received.

This is my first TOFFEE-Mocha combined x86-64 and i386 (Intel x86 64-bit and 32-bit) code release.

Introducing TOFFEE-DataCenter ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE TOFFEE Data-Center is specifically meant for Data Center, Cluster Computing, HPC applications. TOFFEE is built in Linux Kernel core. This makes it inflexible to adapt according to the hardware configuration. It does sequential packet processing and does not scale up well in large multi-core CPU based systems (such as Intel Xeon servers, Core i7 Extreme Desktop systems,etc). Apart from this since it is kernel based, if there is an issue in kernel, it may crash entire system. This becomes a challenge for any carrier grade equipment (CGE) hardware build.

First TOFFEE Code Release ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I started working on the new TOFFEE project (which is the fork of my earlier TrafficSqueezer open-source project) starting from 1st January 2016 onwards. Ever since I was busy in research and altering certain old features so that it is more minimal than TrafficSqueezer, a more focused agenda, deliver refined code and a broader vision. I have lined up more things to follow in the upcoming months. I want to focus about all aspects of WAN communication technologies not just on core WAN Optimization research and technology.

Building my own CDN - Minify Script files - Update: 23-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
One of the suggestions Google PageSpeed Insights tool suggested for The TOFFEE Project website is to minify the css and java script files. Minify Script files: When you read online about minification of your web script files, often they highlight file size savings and thus resulting faster download time and better website performance.

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment in Large Infrastructure and or ISP Networks ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
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.
