The next treis information is normally loaded into god object from movement pattern files, before simulation begins, since calculating this on the fly greeis simulation runs can be quite time consuming. The node-movement files generated using setdest like scentest already include lines like above to load the god object with the appropriate information at the appropriate time. The above code creates two nodes and assigns them to the handles ‘n0’ and ‘n1’. You may want to adapt the window size x to your screen size.

See comments in the code below for a brief description of each variable defined.

Save the file wireless1. The configuration API can be defined as follows: The next line connects the two nodes. We use a modified ‘finish’ procedure tuotrial do that. You can already insert the template from section IV. If you think there is a technique which is superior in terms of understandablity which is what I aim for in this tutorialplease let me know.

The web is probably the best medium for a tutorial like this, because it’s not only possible to add pictures or even animations for the examples, but you can also directly download the examples if you don’t have the time for typing them in yourself though I would suggest doing that at least for the first few examples.

If that also doesn’t solve your problem, you might want to ask the ns-users mailing list. Characterizing the rate of topology change in a movement pattern. Tutoril configuration API for creating mobilenodes looks as follows: You can find the full example script here.


Monitoring a queue You only have to add the following line to your code to monitor the queue for the link from n2 to n3. Next after tutoral of mobilenodes source node-movement and connection pattern files that were defined earlier as val sc and tutoriial cp respectively. Identifying the frequency and size of partitions.

The nominal range is either provided as an argument to the programs, or extracted from the header in node-movement pattern files.

IX. Running Wireless Simulations in ns

We shall make changes to the script, simple-wireless. You can save and start the script now. In this section, you are going to learn to use the mobile wireless simulation model available in ns.

Topology and Traffic Sources First of all, we create the following topology:. Now you can start the script again and one flow should be blue, while the other one is red. Running the Simulation We can now schedule the following events: It takes six arguments: The next step is to add a ‘finish’ procedure that closes the trace file and starts nam.

Run the script by typing at the prompt: The options for the orientation of a link are right, left, up, down and combinations of these orientations.

In this section I am going to show you an example for a dynamic network where the routing adjusts to a link failure. In vreis section, you are going to develop a Tcl script for ns which simulates a simple topology.

VI. Network dynamics

Make sure the connection-pattern and node-movement files exist under the directories as declared above. The purpose of these pages is to make it easier for new ns users to use ns and nam, to create their own simulation scenarios for these tools and to eventually add new functionality to ns. As an extension to the previous sub-sectionwe are going to simulate a simple multihop wireless scenario consisting of 3 mobilenodes here.


In addition to the evaluation functionalities, the God object is called internally by MAC objects in mobilenodes.

However the node movements for this example shall be read from a node-movement file called scentest. I chose a frame-oriented design for these pages, since it makes them easier to navigate. Thus all pkts destined for nodes 0 and 2 are routed through node 1.

In these pages I describe ns version 2. For information on how to write your own Tcl scripts for ns, see section IV.

Marc Greis’ Tutorial for the UCB/LBNL/VINT Network Simulator “ns”

However as mentioned earlier no traffic flow can be seen not supported as yet. The following piece of Tcl code creates three duplex links between the nodes. As always, the topology has to be created first, though this time we take a different approach which you will find more comfortable when you want to create larger topologies.

Next we create the 2 mobilenodes as follows: Packets are exchanged between the nodes as they come within hearing range of one another.

It should look like the picture below. Save the file simple-wireless. You can download it here. The script might create some output on stdout, it might write a trace file or it might start nam to visualize the simulation.

Just as with any other ns simulation, we begin by creating a tcl script for the wireless simulation.
