Installing ns-3.37 and ns-3.35 in Ubuntu | Ubuntu 22.04 | NS3

Multiple Versions of ns3 in Ubuntu 22.04 In this post, we are going to install two versions of ns3 namely ns-3.35 and ns-3.37  My OS is : Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Long Term Support) ns-3.35 uses waf and (./waf --run scratch/first)  ns-3.37 uses cmake  (./ns3 run scratch/first.cc) So we will install both the packages  Go through the video for complete instructions To start with  $ sudo apt update  $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev g++ python3 python3-dev pkg-config sqlite3 cmake python3-setuptools git qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar gsl-bin libgsl-dev libgslcblas0 wireshark tcpdump sqlite sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev  libxml2 libxml2-dev libc6-dev libc6-dev-i386 libclang-dev llvm-dev automake python3-pip libxml2 libxml2-dev libboost-all-dev  I have downloaded both the versions of ns3 fr

Linux File System

Linux supports many number of file systems, that’s why Linux is accepted quickly as one of the best Operating systems.

Linux has the unified interface called as Virtual File system (VFS) which serves as the interface defined in between the OS kernel and the different file systems as illustrated below.

The Virtual file System

  • Supplies the applications with the system calls for file management
  • Maintains the internal structures
  • Passes tasks on to the appropriate actual file system
  • Performance of default actions

Basic Principles

  • Two main factors taken into consideration while designing any file system
    • Speed of access of data and
    • Facility for Random access
      • is made possible by means of the block oriented devices which are divided into specific number of equal sized blocks.
      • When using the blocks, linux uses a buffer cache to speed up the process in random access.
  • In Linux/Unix, the data is stored in a hierarchical file system containing not only files and directories, but also the device files, FIFO (Named pipes), symbolic links and sockets.
  • Every file is represented by a file structure and an inode structure. It is always possible to access a particular file through the inode file with the help of the inode unique number.
  • Directories
    • allow the file system to be given a hierarchical structure. These are also implemented as files, but the kernel assumes them to contain pairs consisting of a filename and its inode number.
    • In older version of unix, it was possible to modify directory files using simple text editor, but for consistency this is no longer available in the new version of Unix.

Structure of UNIX File system

The UNIX file system passes through various processes like

clip_image004

· Boot block

  1. Each file system starts with a boot block. The block is reserved for the code required to boot the operating system.

· Super block

o All information which is essential for managing the file system is held in the superblock

· Inode block

o Contains the inode structure for the files

· Data blocks

o The data blocks contains ordinary files along with the directory entries and the indirect blocks.

In Unix, the separate file systems are not accessed via device identifiers as is the case for other operating systems, but are combined in a hierarchical tree.

The arrangement is made of mounting the file system, which adds another file system to the existing directory tree. A new file system can be mounted to any directory. The original directory is then called as the mount point. Unmounting the file system release the directory structure again.
