NEWS & UPDATES 》 TOFFEE-Butterscotch Bandwidth saver software development - Update: 17-Nov-2016

Here is my second software development update of TOFFEE-Butterscotch. In the previous update (28-Oct-2016) I discussed about the Alerts, etc. You can read the complete article HERE. Whereas in my first TOFFEE-Butterscotch news update I have introduced about TOFFEE-Butterscotch research, project specifications, use-cases, etc.

Filter :: Block Torrent: You can now block selective torrent packets with the new block torrent feature under TOFFEE-Butterscotch Filter as shown below.
Block Torrent Traffic or packets

If torrent packets are blocked(dropped), the same is notified in the home page as alerts as shown below.

NOTE: The Alert count will be reset (and hidden) if block torrent feature is disabled.

Block Torrent Traffic or packets

Throttle Torrent: So far you can only Throttle TCP packets (includes all TCP application layer protocol packets). But from now you can also throttle other application protocol packets. For instance in this case Torrent packets. You can introduce directly inter-packet delay (upload and or download) and control the rate of these packets precisely. As long as you are using your home/SOHO internet all by yourself it is not that important to rate-limit Torrent traffic. But in case if you are sharing your connection with your family members or your employees(or colleagues) then this feature will slow down torrent traffic and on the other-hand prioritizes other important interactive traffic. If you are playing games or using your Internet for other purposes simultaneously while downloading large files via Torrent, then this feature will be quite useful so that the torrent traffic will not slowdown your basic Internet access.
Torrent download without bandwidth throttle

Here is my test HP laptop in which I am downloading a sample Ubuntu OS distro via torrent. In this case the Throttle torrent is disabled in TOFFEE-Butterscotch as you can see above. And this is the peak speed at which I can able to download this torrent.
Torrent download without bandwidth throttle


Test Case 1: Throttle Torrent Enabled :: Download and Upload delay 5msec:
Torrent download bandwidth throttle 5 milli seconds

In this case I am getting maximum download speed: 688KB/s (bytes/sec) as you can see below:
Torrent download bandwidth throttle 5 milli seconds


Test Case 2: Throttle Torrent Enabled :: Download and Upload delay 1msec:
Torrent download bandwidth throttle 1 milli second

In this case I am getting maximum download speed: 2.07MB/s (bytes/sec) as you can see below:
Torrent download bandwidth throttle 1 milli second

A study on Deep Space Networks (DSN) ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
When you are dealing Deep Space Networks (DSN) one among the most challenging parts is the Interplanetary distances and communicating data across such vast distances. This is where we are not dealing with common Internet type traffic such as HTTP/FTP/VoIP/etc but it is completely different when it comes to DSN so far. So optimizing data in DSN becomes mandatory. For example if you think one of the Mars Rovers, they have used LZO lossless compression.

First TOFFEE-Butterscotch Code Release ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE-Butterscotch is a 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.

Multi-dimensional (Multi-universe) Internet Technology - A Proposal ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
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.

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.

Power consumption of my Home Lab devices for research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is my power-consumption measurements of various devices deployed within my home lab. I measured via my kill-a-watt sort of power-meter which is fairly reliable and accurate. I checked its accuracy with various standard load such as Philips LED laps and other constant power-consuming devices to make sure that the power-meter is precise.

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment with VPN devices ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
In case if you need to deploy TOFFEE along with your existing VPN devices you can deploy the same as shown below. This will allow your VPN devices to encrypt your TOFFEE WAN Optimized network data. NOTE: Make sure about the VPN deployment topology done in the right order. Else TOFFEE (LAN side) may get VPN encrypted packets which may not be possible (and or difficult) to further optimize. Hence always make sure to deploy them in a topology suggested below so that TOFFEE devices are out of VPN tunnel.

TOFFEE Benchmarks :: TOFFEE-1.1.28 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is the TOFFEE WAN Optimization benchmarks of the TOFFEE version: TOFFEE-1.1.28. This is the current TOFFEE development version till date (2-Jul-2016). This is a HPC TOFFEE variant meant for high-end custom build servers and high-end desktops (i.e High Performance Computing a.k.a HPC). TOFFEE built this way often needs customized kernel compilation and build such as processor specific and hardware specific tune-ups since it is highly CPU intensive (if not offloaded via Hardware Accelerator Cards).
