NEWS :: Introducing TOFFEE-Butterscotch - Save and Optimize your Internet/WAN bandwidth

Release Notes:
NEWS :: First TOFFEE-Butterscotch Code Release

User Guide (Documentation)
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. Here is the deployment topology of TOFFEE-Butterscotch deployment. You can deploy the same either before your WiFi router or after your router whichever is feasible as shown below.

For example you can optimize your slow and expensive 3G/4G Mobile networks:

The TOFFEE-Butterscotch-1.0.11-rpi2-23-nov-2016 release is highly optimized and customized for Raspberry Pi 2/3 hardware platform and it is built within the standard Raspberry Pi Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL Operating System (version: 2016-09-23-raspbian-jessie.img).

Installation: TOFFEE-Butterscotch Raspberry Pi version is a complete disk image of Raspberry Pi Raspbian OS in which TOFFEE-Butterscotch is built and pre-installed. You can download the binary (the install image above), un-tar it and install on a microSD card which is around larger than or equal to 8GB capacity. Since this is the size of the microSD card upon which I built the TOFFEE-Butterscotch image.

You can follow the standard official Raspberry Pi guide for general Raspberry Pi OS image install steps: Installing operating system images

If you are using a Linux system you can do via dd command as shown below. Assume in this case the empty microSD card is "/dev/sdc"

kiran@desktop-i7-5820k:~$ sudo dd bs=4M if=TOFFEE-Butterscotch-1.0.11-rpi2-23-nov-2016.img conv=sync,noerror of=/dev/sdc

Hardware :: Additional NIC Card Installation: You can use a USB2 to 100Mbps NIC card so that you can get totally two network ports as shown below. Once it is installed you can check and confirm via ifconfig command as shown below:
TOFFEE-Butterscotch Raspberry Pi device interfaces

Configuration: Once you are done with Installation, you can boot TOFFEE-Butterscotch OS image. As you can see the entire Raspbian Jessie with PIXEL is customized so that it looks minimal and has this polished interface.

TOFFEE-Butterscotch GUI: You can now access the TOFFEE-Butterscotch GUI via your Google Chrome browser as shown below.
The default username is: root and the password is: welcome

URL: http://localhost/toffee_butterscotch
TOFFEE_Butterscotch Login [CDN]

Home page: Once you login you will get this first HOME page.
TOFFEE_Butterscotch Home Page

Wizard: You can now configure TOFFEE-Butterscotch ports (and activate Linux kernel bridge) via wizard as shown below.
NOTE: Select appropriate LAN and WAN ports. Swapping these ports may cause connectivity issues and performance degradation.

Basic Settings: You can do TCP throttle and Torrent traffic throttle as shown below. For more details kindly refer documentation/help in the page.
TOFFEE_Butterscotch Throttle TCP [CDN]
In my case the overall download and upload speed of my Internet connection is 55Mbps and 49Mbps so I am setting 60Mbps as my average WAN speed for better TCP performance via TCP throttle feature.

Real time stats: Monitor real time data-consumption (or data-transferred) stats.
TOFFEE_Butterscotch Live performance stats [CDN]

Big-picture: Anytime you can view and confirm your settings via Big Picture. Big Picture is a neat graphical illustration of your overall TOFFEE-Butterscotch settings. You can view any time as a reference or even print and file it as a record if you are a Network Admin.

TOFFEE-Butterscotch future road-map: This is the first release of TOFFEE-Butterscotch open-source Bandwidth saver software. Currently as one can understand the features supported in the same are quite limited. But in future you should get more and more new features being supported in the same. If you need any specific features, you can post your new feature requests to me, and if they are plausible they should get supported in the same eventually.

Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is a step-by-step DIY to build your own Intel based Mini PC WAN Optimization Device with TOFFEE. I chose this below Intel Celeron Mini PC since it is fan-less aluminium case and as well it has 2 dedicated inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports. You can use one for LAN Network and one for WAN Network.

Building my own CDN - Google PageSpeed Insights - Update: 22-Jul-2016 ↗
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.

Today I finally completed building my own private CDN. As I discussed so far in my earlier topics (Building my own CDN), I want to custom build the same step-by-step from scratch. And I don't want to for now use/buy third-party CDN subscriptions from Akamai, CloudFlare, Limelight, etc as I discussed earlier.

Now I supported and finished complete GUI support of these parameters so that you can configure, store, reboot and the same will restore upon reboot. Besides I complete the TOFFEE-Mocha Big-Picture page. The Big picture is an interface where you can find all the configuration (or settings) of the TOFFEE-Mocha. This is almost similar to CISCO device show all command but in graphical representation. Sometimes a network admin can also print the Big Picture page and paste it near to the device to refer its settings.
