Marc Greis’ ns Tutorial Contents: I. Introduction II. Finding Documentation II For ns&nam II.2 For Tcl II.3 For C++ III. The Basics III.1 Downloading/ Installing. Only the first 94 pages are relevant for Tcl, the rest of the book is about Tk and more complicated aspects of Tcl. I also found a short OTcl Tutorial. Another good .

The packetSize is being set to bytes tutlrial a packet will be sent every 0. You can download the complete example here if it doesn’t work for you and you think you might have made a mistake. 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.
For a copy of wireless1. The configuration API for creating mobilenodes looks as follows: You can download the full example here. If you want to download a copy of simple-wireless.
In second subsection, we will extend our example in subsection 1 to create a relatively more complex wireless scenario. It will get clearer to you once you see what the code does. The nominal range is either provided as an argument to the programs, or extracted from the header in node-movement pattern files. In this section, you are going to learn to use the mobile wireless simulation model available in ns.
See Chapter 15 of ns documentation for details on wireless trace.
IX. Running Wireless Simulations in ns
You can save tutoriql start the script now. The nodes start out initially at two opposite ends of the boundary. However as mentioned earlier no traffic flow can be seen not supported as yet.
CBR stands for ‘constant bit rate’. In this section, you are going to develop a Tcl script for ns which simulates tutoiral simple topology. For details and available optional values of these variables, see chapter 15 mobile networking in ns of ns documentation.
At the beginning of a wireless simulation, we need to define the type for each of these network components. The last line finally starts the simulation.

This API is used to tutoial direction and speed of movement of the mobilenodes. Note that all wireless traces starts with WL in their first field.
When you click on the ‘play’ button in the nam window, you will see that after 0. 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. So please download the daily snapshot unless a release is made for version ns2. I will explain find a way to distinguish the data flows from the two nodes from each other, and I will show how a queue can be monitored to see how full it is, and how many packets are being discarded.
You can find the relevant parameters for each agent type in the ns manual page. Also we are going to set up greie traces. Then they move towards each other in the first half of the simulation and again move away for the second half. I suggest that you call this first example ‘example1.
Other uses that CMU has found for the information are: Tutorkal are going to simulate a very simple 2-node wireless scenario. So the next step is to create an agent object that sends data from node n0, and another agent object that receives the data on node n1.
In ns, data is always being sent from one ‘agent’ to another. Make sure the connection-pattern and node-movement files exist under the directories as declared above. The mobilenodes move about within an area whose boundary is defined in this example as mXm.
Next we create the object God, as follows: I suggest that now you start some experiments with nam and the Tcl script. In addition to the variables LL, MAC, antenna etc that were declared at the beginning of the script, we now define some more parameters like the connection-pattern and node-movement file, x and y values for the topology boundary, a seed value for the random-number generator, time for the simulation to stop, for convinience.
Initially both the freis are far apart and thus TCP pkts are dropped by node0 as it cannot hear from node1. The current snapshot version is updated daily, so please check the validation results for that day before downloading, as these greus can sometimes be unstable due to ongoing changes made by ns-developers.
The following two lines define the two turorial. Creating Output Files for Xgraph. A node, a previously created traffic sink, the packet size for the traffic source, the burst and idle times for the exponential distribution and the peak rate.

Both setdest and calcdest calculate the shortest number of hops between grdis based on the nominal radio range, ignoring any effects that might be introduced by the propagation model in an actual simulation.
However as node1 starts to move away from node0, the connection breaks down again around time Now add the following piece of code to your Tcl script, preferably tutoiral the beginning after the simulator object has been created, since tutorkal is a part of the simulator setup. On the way there, I will also show you how to use traffic generators.
Packets are exchanged between the nodes as they come within hearing range of one another. We begin our script simple-wireless. Line 7 and 8 should be self-explaining.
