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"

[email protected]:~$ 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:

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

Home page: Once you login you will get this first 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
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.

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
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion ยต-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research. With TrueBench Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 2B, Raspberry Pi 2 and other embedded SoC devices are benchmarked and you can do a comparative analysis with standard mainstream x86 devices.

Optimization of network data (WAN Optimization) at various levels ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
WAN Network data can be optimized at various levels depending upon the network applications, protocols, topology and use-cases. So the amount of data you can optimize will depend on the strategy you choose to optimize. Such as: Network Packet level optimization, Session level optimization, File level optimization, etc.

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) optimized Mobile Wireless Backhaul Networks ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE can be used to optimize expensive Wireless backhaul network infrastructure. TOFFEE can be deployed over existing slow or often outdated old backhaul networks too. This will leverage mobile ISPs and network service providers to reduce their bulk IT CapEx and OpEx Costs.

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.

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.
