NEWS & UPDATES 》 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization software development - Update: 19-Aug-2016

In my first article (4-Aug-2016) I discussed about the introduction of TOFFEE-DataCenter. You can read the complete article HERE.

And in my next update (13-Aug-2016) I showed the first TOFFEE-DataCenter GUI screenshots. You can read the complete article HERE.

This is my next software development update of TOFFEE-DataCenter which I am working since past few weeks. I was very busy in implementing the core TOFFEE-DataCenter components along with prototyping, benchmarking, implementing and testing the same. However today is the first time ever I did a fresh new CLI interface for the upcoming new TOFFEE-DataCenter.

Unlike TOFFEE, TOFFEE-DataCenter is meant to be installed in servers with or without a GUI access (even a remote web-GUI) all the time. Whereas in TOFFEE the objective is to provide TOFFEE configuration interface always via easy to understand web user-GUI. TOFFEE needs web interface since it has similar user-case like any networking device (such as Wifi-Router, Router, Firewall or a manageable switch). But in the case of TOFFEE-DataCenter it represents a packet processing (or network) server. Hence TOFFEE-DataCenter mandatorily requires a quick, reliable, robust, light-weight and secure CLI access.

So here are my few screenshots of TOFFEE-DataCenter which I had supported so far today. The CLI underneath uses the GUI modules which makes it highly reliable with as much as code reuse(i.e TOFFEE-DataCenter GUI library).

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI access and greeting: An IT admin can access TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI remotely (via SSH) or directly (via Terminal) as shown. Upon access they are greeted with important system info parameters such as TOFFEE-DataCenter release version, release date, server's host name (hostname), server's booted kernel version (uname -r), CPU model info, CPU core count. This gives a sneak peak to the admin so that he/she can be aware always which system (TOFFEE-DataCenter server) they are currently accessing directly or remotely. At any time the admin can get host name info via their prompt. In this case it shows [email protected]$ which stands for host name (or server) WD-1TB2.
72-1 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli access

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: Help: You can use shortcuts like "h" or "?" or "help"
72-2 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli help

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: server info: shows the same welcome greeting with the system parameters.
72-3 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli TOFFEE server info

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: server health: shows system temperature, CPU load, etc.
72-4 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli TOFFEE server health

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: show config: This is the CLI equivalent of GUI big-picture interface.
72-5 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli show config

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: ifconfig: shows the port info (output of standard Linux ifconfig command)
72-6 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli port info

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: set ports: set lan port and wan port. In future may support multi-lan and multi-wan ports.
72-7 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli show config

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: toffee enable: enable packet forwarding (bridging)
72-8 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli enable toffee packet forwarding

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: show stats: It shows blank since the server/device which I am working is a development system.
72-9 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli show stats

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: save config - load config: You can save your CLI configuration in a config file and load when in need. Although this is optional since TOFFEE-DataCenter maintains the config in a database. But this config file acts as a quick user-profile specific TOFFEE-DataCenter server settings.
72-10 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli load config save config

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: purge stats: Just like GUI you can purge historic stats. Sometimes it is needed for research and or debugging purposes.
72-11 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli stats purge

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: TOFFEE reset: Do a TOFFEE reset. This resets ports and toffee forwarding bridge. This will not impact other settings. This feature may get well defined in future based on the way project progresses.
72-12 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli toffee reset

TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI :: quit: Exit or Quit CLI. You can use short-cuts like "q" or "e" or "exit" or "quit" to quit the CLI.
72-13 TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization cli quit

So this is the TOFFEE-DataCenter CLI interface so far supported. As one can understand it still misses many settings which are currently been supported in the TOFFEE-DataCenter web-GUI. I hope very soon sometime in future the CLI should get mature and will support all the configuration parameters of TOFFEE-DataCenter just like web-GUI. In my upcoming next update I may share more CLI screenshots with more commands (and features).

Here is my Youtube VLOG of the same:

My Lab Battery Purchase and Service logs for Research ↗
Wednesday' 05-Aug-2020
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.

Multi-dimensional (Multi-universe) Internet Technology - A Proposal ↗
Wednesday' 05-Aug-2020
Currently what we have is a single homogeneous (sort of) WWW Internet. Which we can consider as a single-dimensional network. What I propose is that we can create complete independent multiple Internets with each Internet having its own IP-address space, Domain namespace and an authority to manage Domain names. And these networks/Internets can be entirely IPv4 only based or IPv6 only based.
