NEWS & UPDATES 》 TOFFEE-DataCenter - First Live Demo and software development - Update: 26-Aug-2016

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.
73-1 TOFFEE-Datacenter Demo Topology

Here is photo of my setup. The monitor is connected to the TOFFEE-DataCenter server which is an Intel Core i7 5820K system. One end of the TOFFEE-DataCenter is connected to my main home wifi-router which is connected to the Internet. The other port of the TOFFEE-DataCenter is connected to the test Belkin Wifi Router. To which via WiFi my Samsung Android Tab is connected.
73-2 TOFFEE-Datacenter Demo Topology

I tested with various apps in my Samsung Tab such as Clash of Clans, News 360, Instructables and so on. I found Clash of Clans using SSL (HTTPS or TLS) traffic initially to authenticate and exchanges data to-and-fro to supercell servers. You can see here a TLSv1 packet exchange of Clash of Clans app captured in the TOFFEE DataCenter server.

And in between it exchanges the game data (metadata) in custom TCP ports (in this case port 9339) as you can see below.

Followed by Clash of Clans I tested the TOFFEE DataCenter performance with News360 Android app. I found News360 app is using standard port 80 (HTTP). And here is the overall bandwidth savings (and stats) captured in TOFFEE-DataCenter. Since most of the data is one-directional i.e Server --> Tab. One side (Internet to Tab) it shows the data in MB and on the other side (Tab to Internet) since it usually involves HTTP-GETs and TCP ACK packets, it shows data in KB units.

Here is the instantaneous performance charts of the same.

I have done various live tests and performance analysis of this scenario. You can watch the same in my live Youtube video-log of the same:

TOFFEE Optimized Satellite ISP Network: TOFFEE/TOFFEE-DataCenter can be used to optimize Satellite Networks (Satellite based Internet Networks, VoIP, Data, private leased-links) as shown. Ground station transponders can be connected via array of TOFFEE Devices and in the remote CPE can have dedicated or inbuilt TOFFEE with which you can establish a WAN Optimized Satellite Network Tunnel as shown.

My Lab Battery Purchase and Service logs for Research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
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.

TOFFEE-Butterscotch Bandwidth saver software development - Update: 28-Oct-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is my first software development update of TOFFEE-Butterscotch. In my first TOFFEE-Butterscotch news update I have introduced about TOFFEE-Butterscotch research, project specifications, use-cases, etc. Introducing TOFFEE-Butterscotch Alerts: These are simple packet counters which corresponds to the filter type. For example if the incoming TCP-SYN packets are blocked then its corresponding alert counter will increment whenever such a packet arrives and gets filtered (dropped).

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.

VPN Network Optimization via TOFFEE WAN Optimization ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
VPN Networks may degrade network performance due to various packet processing overheads such as encryption and by adding extra network protocol header(s) (such as IPv4/IPv6, IPSec, etc). This may inflate near MTU sized packets and causes excessive packet fragmentation. Here are the few examples of packet processing involved in a VPN (or a VPN like) Tunnel. With TOFFEE you can optimize these packets even before they get processed on to a VPN device. TOFFEE optimizes packet contents (application payload and transport headers) so that these TOFFEE optimized packets when they get processed by VPN devices (or VPN software stack) they may never need further packet fragmentation. Here is a deployment scenario of TOFFEE with VPN devices.

Building my own CDN - Moving away from Joomla to non-Joomla website - Update: 01-Oct-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Seems there are couple of Inmotionhosting servers are down. And one of the server includes The TOFFEE Project website hosted server. I was in touch with the Inmotionhosting team trying to resolve the same. I found a unique issue that all my website files are intact and the Joomla database. But the Joomla database tables are completely wiped out and missing. Besides there is also a sort of upgrade going on in their servers. Luckily I have the most recent backup of the entire website.
