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).

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.

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: 16-June-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I started TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development on 1-June-2016. I took the existing TOFFEE components as a base. Although the TOFFEE-Mocha is entirely an independent fresh Open-Source WAN Emulation solution. Ever since I am in the process of defining and inventing features. So far I come up with the most important feature which is expected to be present in any WAN Emulation software is the packet delay option.

Today I completed doing all the changes which are meant for the new upcoming TOFFEE-Mocha release. I have increased the resolution and the range of all factor variables. Instead 1 to 10 range now they have a range of 1 to 30. Unlike before the value 1 means it is lot more intense (or in some cases less intense) and the uppermost value 30 means lot less intense (or in some cases lot intense).
