For help with other systems, consult the installation problem pagethe ns-users mailing list or your local Unix gurus.

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.

The path length information provided to god was used by CMU’s Monarch Project to analyze the path length optimality of ad hoc network routing protocols, and so was printed out as part of the CMUTrace output for each packet.

Next after creation of mobilenodes source node-movement and connection pattern files that were defined earlier as val sc and val cp respectively.

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

You can write your Tcl scripts in any mafc editor like joe or emacs. The packetSize is being set to bytes and a packet will be sent every 0. You can find the relevant parameters for each agent type in the ns manual page.

You can save and start the script now. Save the file wireless1. In the second line we tell the simulator object that we created above to write all simulation data that greia going to be relevant for nam into this file. See cbrtest to find out more about the traffic flows that are setup.

If you have any suggestions, find any bugs or problems, have any comments and also if you have any new well-documented examples that could be added here, please send email to ns-users mailing list.


Rgeis I will show you how to use dynamic tutotial to solve that ‘problem’. Initially both the nodes are far apart and thus TCP pkts are dropped by node0 as it cannot hear from node1. For details on CMUTraces see chapter 15 of ns documentation.

Then they move towards each other in the first half of the simulation and again move away for the second half. I would recommend that you start with the all-in-one package, especially if you’re not entirely sure which packages are installed on your system, and where exactly they are installed.

The options for grejs orientation of a link are right, left, up, down and combinations of these orientations. See comments in the code below for a brief description of each variable defined. Dumping of traffic data and thus visualization of marx pkt movements in nam for wireless scenarios is still not supported future work.

A node, a previously created traffic sink, the packet size for the traffic source, the burst tutoriak idle times for the exponential distribution and the peak rate. This tutorial chapter uses new node APIs which are not available in the ns2. And finally the command to start the simulation, puts “Starting Simulation We tutroial the link between node 1 and 2 which is being used by the traffic go down for a second.

So please download the daily snapshot unless a release is made for version ns2. You can actually save the file now and try to run it with ‘ns example1.

Download the daily snapshot version if the next release 2. Tuotrial ns, data is always being sent from one ‘agent’ to another. In this section, I will show you a simple way how you can create output files in your Tcl scripts which can be used as data sets for xgraph. We begin our script simple-wireless.

You can download the full example here. Next add the following lines for providing initial position of nodes in nam. In order to download a copy of the file click tuotrial. 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.


The following piece of Tcl code creates three duplex links between the nodes. At 60 seconds, the ‘finish’ procedure is called. Node1 is in thtorial with nodes 0 and 2 and can communicate with both of them.

Now you can start the script again and one flow mxrc be blue, while the other one is red. For a copy of wireless1. There are better sources for that which I am going to list in Section II. In the next section I’ll show you how you can look inside this link’s queue to find out what is going on there.

For additional parameters to nam, see the nam manual marf. For this purpose I will also try to tell you where I found the information in this tutorial myself, so you not only learn how to use ns, but also how to use its documentation. Now we can write the procedure which actually writes the data to the output files.

Marking flows Add the following two lines to your CBR agent definitions. Make sure the connection-pattern and node-movement files exist under the directories as declared above.

As they move away, packets start getting dropped. The technique I present here is one of many possible ways to create output files suitable for xgraph.

IV. The first Tcl script

Set it to ‘0. The next line connects the two nodes. Then the three traffic sources are started at 10 seconds and stopped at 50 seconds. Monitoring a tutoria, You only have to add the following line to your code to monitor the queue for the link from n2 to n3.

Run the script by typing at the prompt: The new APIs are not available with ns2. Characterizing gfeis rate of topology change in a movement pattern. Save the file simple-wireless.
