Queuing Models in NS2

M/M/1 is a system with poisson arrival time, servicing exponentially and a queue of unlimited capacity and type of FIFO Queue. This is the simplest queuing system.  NS2 supports various distributions like pareto, exponential, constant, unifrom, etc to handle the network dynamics and metrics. So it is very easy to test the given network link to monitor a given queue using any of these queuing models. The listing 3 and 4 are monitoring the link when DropTail queue is used with a capacity of finite and infinite. Listing 13.3 uses infinite capacity and Listing 13.4 uses Finite capacity The output screen shot is shown below the scripts for further understanding

cbrgen and setdest in NS2 (Network Simulator 2)

This post will help you to understand the automatic TCL code generation for creating connections between the nodes, to create hops, generates tcp or cbr agents, etc.

There are two things are used: setdest and cbrgen.tcl

setdest is used to

  • Create hops between the nodes using the GOD (General Operations Director) object.
  • Create mobility for nodes in terms of metres/second
  • Move from one place to another place using setdest (Set destination) with speed
  • To execute, use ./setdest
Example of Setdest is

$] cd /home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/indep-utils/cmu-scen-gen/setdest

$] ./setdest -v 2 -n 10 -s 1 -m 10 -M 50 -t 30 -P 1 -p 1 -x 500 -y 500 > usersetdest.tcl

The above output is redirected to usersetdest.tcl 

  • create connections between the nodes , one can specify the maximum number of connections to be made for all the nodes in the network
  • to create the type of agents between the nodes (cbr or tcp)
  • rate at which the packets are transmitted.
  • to execute this, ns cbrgen.tcl

Example of cbrgen.tcl is
$] /home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/indep-utils/cmu-scen-gen
$] ns cbrgen.tcl -type cbr -nn 10 -seed 1 -mc 5 -rate 5.0 > cbr-10-test.tcl
See the image below to use these two scripts
