NEWS & UPDATES 》 Why TOFFEE is forked from TrafficSqueezer

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.

Here is the complete historical timeline of TrafficSqueezer(and the new TOFFEE) project:
Aug-2017TOFFEE development and support is discontinued. Instead the new TOFFEE-DataCenter will be supported to all users.

Apr-2007Registered in Sourceforge.net. Pre-Alpha release
Sep-2006Started research on WAN Optimization

TrafficSqueezer is mainly research centric and its purpose is to experiment WAN Optimization for Deep-space communications, Satellite networks and Mobile communications. Throughout many years its code and architecture underwent drastic changes so scale up and match these expectations/use-cases. The focus of TrafficSqueezer project is all about perfecting the WAN Optimization model and research than a very serious immediately usable WAN Optimization or Network Optimization software by every user in the world.

Introducing TOFFEE !
TOFFEE is a new fork of TrafficSqueezer project which is intended solely to cater Linux based Network Optimization platform and its related research (i.e: TOFFEE-Mocha, TrueBench, The Linux Channel, etc). Unlike TrafficSqueezer the primary objective of TOFFEE is not limited to research, but to bring in the change and make WAN Optimization suited for latest IT trends such as NFV, SDN, Virtualization, Software based WAN Optimization, IoT, and so on. Unlike TrafficSqueezer which is built in multiple stages and in multiple phases TOFFEE directly forked from the most latest mature version of TrafficSqueezer (mainstream). This way TOFFEE is not a project which is built from scratch. And so the new name TOFFEE hints new path, new direction, motivation, inspiration and a sense of simplicity.

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.

Here is a step-by-step DIY to build your own Intel based Mini PC WAN Optimization Device with TOFFEE. I chose this below Intel Celeron Mini PC since it is fan-less aluminium case and as well it has 2 dedicated inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports. You can use one for LAN Network and one for WAN Network.

Here is a complete log of my lab battery purchase, service record which I maintain in Google drive. These I use for my home (or my family generic use) as well as a part of my home lab. I maintain a detailed log this way to monitor the failure rate of these batteries. This will allow me to select a specific brand/model which has higher success rate and to monitor any premature failure/expiry. The service log helps me to monitor and schedule the next service routine so that I can maintain these batteries in tip-top condition.

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: 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.

I was doing some specific tests in my TOFFEE and TOFFEE-DataCenter (WAN optimization) scenarios such as variable upload and download speeds. And I was also doing some experiments with speedtest.net and I did some of these tests with TOFFEE-Mocha. I realized there is a case that I can introduce asymmetric constant delays so that you can get different download speed and a different upload speed. And in some cases much faster download speeds and relatively slower upload speeds.
