NEWS & UPDATES 》 TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 18-June-2016

In the previous update (17-Jun-2016) I discussed about the upcoming new Random Packet drop feature along with other completed features.

Now I completed the entire TOFFEE-Mocha Random packet drop feature. I completed all the kernel components and the UI support of the same. And to make GUI settings more organized I split the earlier Basic-Settings page into two separate pages namely: Packet Drop and Packet Delay. So this way it is simple to understand settings according to their functionality.

As you can see below the Random Packet drop feature have two options to set. The first option is to enable or disable the feature. The second option is to set its probability. If the value chosen is 1, then it has the probability of a random number between 1-10. So there are more chances that the packet may get drop. And as the way you increase this value to 2 and 3 and so on. The probability of packets randomly being dropped will reduce.

Unlike before you can see there is a dedicated page to configure the Packet delay feature. Here is the screenshot of the new TOFFEE-Mocha updated Packet Delay settings page:

Updated TOFFEE-Mocha Big-Picture Page:
With the new features in place, I need to update the Big-Picture page. With more features in place, I need to organize the content (or settings) shown in the big-picture. So I categorized the Packet Drop settings and Packet Delay settings in the big-picture as shown below:

Live testing of TOFFEE-Mocha Random Packet Drop feature and test results: I did a simple setup with my PC configured as a TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation device. And two laptops connected to the PC's two NIC cards. This way I can send traffic via TOFFEE-Mocha. I enabled the Random Packet drop feature and did three sample tests with drop factor value 1, drop factor value 2 and then finally drop factor value 3. As you can see below statistics depending on the drop factor you can see the probability of packets getting dropped is being adjusted. Here is the live statistics of the same.

And you can see the overall consolidated report of the same in the TOFFEE-Mocha Home page.

I have capture a live video (and video-log) of these tests so that you can watch it live in my Youtube video below. Along with the same I have also discussed the above features which I have so far supported and the overall project update.

Here is my Youtube VLOG of the same:

TOFFEE hardware selection guide ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
When you build a WAN Optimization device with TOFFEE the entire packet processing (data optimization) takes place in software layer or in other words more precisely Operating System kernel space. However if you have any compression or encryption hardware accelerator hardware card the parts of the TOFFEE packet processing modules can be offloaded to hardware layer and thus improving its efficiency.

TOFFEE-DataCenter - First Live Demo and software development - Update: 26-Aug-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I have done a test setup so that I can able to connect my Android Samsung Tab via TOFFEE DataCenter. Below is my complete test topology of my setup. For demo (and research/development) context I configured TOFFEE DataCenter in engineering debug mode. So I do not need two devices for this purpose.

Raspberry Pi as a Networking Device ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Raspberry Pi is often used as a single board computer for applications such as IoT, hobby projects, DIY, education aid, research and prototyping device. But apart from these applications Raspberry Pi can be used for real-world applications such as in making a full-fledged networking devices. Raspberry Pi is a single board ARM based hardware which is why it is also classified as ARM based SoC. Since it is ARM based it is highly efficient, tiny form-factor and lower in power consumption with moderate computational power. This will allow it to work several hours on emergency battery backup power supply such as low-cost domestic UPS and or some renewable energy source, which is a prerequisite for a typical networking device.



TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment in SD-WAN Applications ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) is a new innovative way to provide optimal application performance by redefining branch office networking. Unlike traditional expensive private WAN connection technologies such as MPLS, etc., SD-WAN delivers increased network performance and cost reduction. SD-WAN solution decouple network software services from the underlying hardware via software abstraction.

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.

TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion ยต-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research.

Introducing TOFFEE-Butterscotch - Save and Optimize your Internet/WAN bandwidth ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE-Butterscotch yet another 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.
