NEWS & UPDATES 》 TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 17-June-2016

In my previous update (on 16-June-2016), I discussed about the TOFFEE-Mocha project introduction, agenda and software development update (Refer: HERE). So far I completed the Constant Packet and Dynamic Packet delay features within the TOFFEE-Mocha kernel modules.

Big Picture Page:
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-Mocha Stats: Apart from big picture, I finished the stats (statistics) pages. The first TOFFEE-Mocha home page shows the consolidated stats report. And in the dedicated stats pages users can view the live stats such as packet wise stats and packet bytes wise stats. TOFFEE-Mocha is a WAN Emulation device, so the intent of these stats is to get data about dropped packets (if set), duplicate packets (if set and once it is implemented in future) and so on.

Random Packet drop feature: Currently I am working on the TOFFEE-Mocha kernel modules to support Random Packet Drop feature. With this feature users can randomly drop few packets here and there on purpose. This will simulate the unreliable WAN network scenarios. I am yet to fully develop and finish this feature by today and tomorrow (that is 17-18 June-2016). And I will update once it is done in my upcoming live update video about the same.

Here is my Youtube VLOG of the same:

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.

The TOFFEE Project :: TOFFEE :: WAN Optimization ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE is an open-source WAN Optimization (Network Performance Optimization) software which can be used to optimize your critical networks.

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.

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.

Optimization of network data (WAN Optimization) at various levels ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
WAN Network data can be optimized at various levels depending upon the network applications, protocols, topology and use-cases. So the amount of data you can optimize will depend on the strategy you choose to optimize. Such as: Network Packet level optimization, Session level optimization, File level optimization, etc.

A study on Deep Space Networks (DSN) ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
When you are dealing Deep Space Networks (DSN) one among the most challenging parts is the Interplanetary distances and communicating data across such vast distances. This is where we are not dealing with common Internet type traffic such as HTTP/FTP/VoIP/etc but it is completely different when it comes to DSN so far. So optimizing data in DSN becomes mandatory. For example if you think one of the Mars Rovers, they have used LZO lossless compression.

First TOFFEE-Butterscotch Code Release ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
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.
