A woodchuck daemon, a network monitor and data transfer manager.
The woodchuck daemon monitors the network and user-behavior to
predict when to initiate transfer tasks.
Applications that are woodchuck enabled register streams (e.g., RSS
feeds, EMail mailboxes) with woodchuck as well as their constiuent
objects (e.g., PodCasts, EMails). When Woodchuck detects good
network conditions, e.g., the device is attached to power and there
is free WiFi, it predicts what data (of the registered objects) the
user will likely need in the near future based on historical user
behavior and user and applications hints, and initiates their transfer.
