NEWS & UPDATES 》 TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 20-Oct-2016

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.

What I did in this version is that I extended the constant delay feature of TOFFEE-Mocha. Added a new variable to enable or disable the overall constant delay factor. So with this option you can now completely enable the constant delay or completely disable the same. It will still contain the old milli-seconds and micro-seconds delay which will add constant delay for each packet irrespective of its direction. And along with that it will include the new upload milli-seconds, micro-seconds and download milli-seconds, micro-seconds delay variables which will add delay respectively to upload/uplink (LAN to WAN) packets and download/downlink (WAN to LAN) packets.

If you set any of these (upload/download) delay parameters along with standard delay (milli-seconds, micro-seconds) then it is going to be a summation of overall delay. So from this version of TOFFEE-Mocha it is going to have a distinct LAN port and a distinct WAN port unlike earlier versions. If you see in my earlier documents (as well as news updates) I mentioned in the user guide stating that: "IMPORTANT NOTE: Since TOFFEE-Mocha device is a WAN emulator device you can configure any port as LAN port and WAN port. Swapping LAN and WAN ports in your deployment will not cause any issues." But not a case anymore starting from this version which should be released very soon.

Here is my screenshot of the same (which is still in development):

So this way you can add asymmetric delays which is a great tool when you are doing systematic tests and research scenarios such as fine-tuning your WAN Optimization device, a network test lab setup, investigating TCP acceleration parameters, TCP optimization and things like that. Strangely with some experiments with TOFFEE-Mocha I have even managed to get better TCP performance and ratings in my speedtest.net test results. Since essentially I am finding ways to optimize TCP Window scaling and make packet drop happen within LAN and self adjust TCP window/throttle rather than packets getting dropped in the WAN network (or Internet). Not only this will save your bandwidth but with this technique it may improve overall end-to-end network performance and higher bandwidth rates.

If you have any feature requests expected to be supported on TOFFEE-Mocha software you can kindly send me your ideas and suggestions.

Here is my Youtube VLOG of the same:

TOFFEE is an open-source WAN Optimization (Network Performance Optimization) software which can be used to optimize your critical networks.

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.

Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
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.

When you choose to use your Raspberry Pi device as your IoT based remote weather station or if you are building Linux kernel (like kernel compilation) within the same, you need a good uninterrupted power source (UPS). But if you are using it on site or in some research camping location you can choose to power your Raspberry Pi device with your custom off-grid solar power source.

Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Ever since after I launched my new The TOFFEE Project website on 1-May'2016, I can see there is a steep increase in traffic. Soon after the launch when I monitored its Alexa rankings it was reporting about 12 Million or so. But once it is getting more and more traffic the Alexa rankings shot up and now currently it shows around 2 Million (as on 22-July-2016). Alexa is an excellent tool to monitor your overall website global ranking and indirectly its performance. Unlike Google Analytics which is bound one or other way into Google's SEO. Alexa gives you a second opinion about your website's growth.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 1-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I got a feature request from Jonathan Withers. Jonathan is from a company called MultiWave Australia. He said he is able to get the TOFFEE-Mocha Raspberry Pi setup up and with that he is able to emulate geostationary satellite link. But he requested me is there a way to extend the constant packet delay from 40mS to 500mS. So as a part of his request I supported the same in the current ongoing development version of TOFFEE-Mocha.
