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:

Recording Lab Monthly power-consumption readings for Research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
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.

Here is my VLOG Youtube video of the same which includes details about version release notes, future road-map and so on. The TOFFEE release is highly optimized and customized for hardware platforms such as x86-64 based Intel NUC and other Intel mobile computing platforms such as laptops and so on. This version (or release) is not suited and so not recommended to be used for high-end desktop and server hardware platform.

Here is my power-consumption measurements of various devices deployed within my home lab. I measured via my kill-a-watt sort of power-meter which is fairly reliable and accurate. I checked its accuracy with various standard load such as Philips LED laps and other constant power-consuming devices to make sure that the power-meter is precise.

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.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 1-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I got a feature request from Jonathan Withers. Jonathan is from a company called MultiWave Australia. He said he is able to get the TOFFEE-Mocha Raspberry Pi setup up and with that he is able to emulate geostationary satellite link. But he requested me is there a way to extend the constant packet delay from 40mS to 500mS. So as a part of his request I supported the same in the current ongoing development version of TOFFEE-Mocha.
