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

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 that I do not need two devices for this purpose.

Why TOFFEE is forked from TrafficSqueezer ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TrafficSqueezer is an open-source WAN Optimization project. TrafficSqueezer is mainly a research project which is started around mid-2006. It is initially started as a research (or prototype) code even before it is officially registered in Sourceforge.net. But this code is just primitive user-space raw socket modules. This is later refined and a pre-alpha version is created. Followed by which Alpha release. This prototype code is moved from user-space to Linux Kernel (Kernel Space) and then the journey begin in terms of making a serious WAN Optimization solution. Once the pre-beta and beta releases are complete the mainstream series is started.

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-DataCenter WAN Optimization software development - Update: 13-Aug-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Earlier the TOFFEE is intended to work on IoT devices, Satellite Networks, branch office/SOHO deployments. In most cases the users may deploy just one or couple of TOFFEE devices per site. But in the case of TOFFEE-DataCenter, users can scale-up deploying the same in multiple servers in a sort of distributed cluster computing scenario. Besides the core TOFFEE-DataCenter components (such as packet processing engine/framework), I need to do lot of changes in its Graphical User Interface (GUI) too to address these new requirements.

A study on WAN Optimization Techniques ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
There are various techniques with which one can optimize their WAN Network Data. Any long distance communication can be considered as WAN Network. A decade ago any network connecting two countries, considered as a WAN network, and a network within a city as MAN and soon. But these days in general any long distance communication is considered as WAN Network. Such as your Mobile communication networks, Satellite networks, Space Networks (Deep space networks), Trans-Atlantic cable networks, etc.
