Installation of NS2 in Fedora 12

The ns2 version taken here is 2.34, if you downloaded any other version, please modify your version during installation

1)Uncompress the ns2

tar zxvf ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz
or
gzip -d ns-allinone-2.34.tar.gz
tar xvf ns-allinone-2.34.tar

2) cd /opt/ns-allinone-2.34 (since /opt is the folder which is unused, so i have selected that folder to install, however you can install that in any folder)

3) ./install (execute the command)

4) If the installation fails in the middle, then try to install the linux packages that are necessary to run NS2. (In any linux (ubuntu or fedora or redhat or suse), install the TCL/TK, Perl packages during the installation of linux…)

5) Once the installation succeeded, then the path information will be provided by the NS2

6) Set the path in the /root/.bash_profile
(vi /root/.bash_profile)

or
If you are a user home/pradeep/.bash_profile (for example, if your the username is pradeep, then execute this command vi /home/pradeep/.bash_profile)
7) set the PATH and the LD_LIBRARY_PATH as per the output screen by NS2. (See the Video given below)

8. logout and login.

9) go to the terminal and try ns  (you will get a % symbol indicating that the installation is Successful)

10) for running the examples comes along with the distribution of NS2
cd /opt/ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34/tcl/ex

11. This is how you will see once the ns2 installation is success, from this information, you can put the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable..

Installation of ns2 in Ubuntu 18.04 - NS2 Tutorial # 2

ns2 installation in Ubuntu 18.04

Unlike earlier version of ubuntu, the 18,04 version does not support the direct installation of ns2, because of the latest C/C++ compiler (7.x), but the latest C/C++ compiler supported by ns2 is gcc-4.8. So this post and video tells you about the installation of gcc-4.8 version, then ns2 and then configuration.
Here are the steps, Please follow the video given below for more information.

$] tar zxvf ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz


$] sudo apt install gcc-4.8 g++-4.8

if you have installed ubuntu just now, you can try these commands also in the beginning

$] sudo apt update
$] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev

$] cd ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35
$] gedit Makefile.in
$] gedit linkstate/ls.h

line number 137, change erase to this->erase
$] cd ..
$] ./install

export PATH=$PATH:/home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/bin:/home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/tcl8.5.10/unix:/home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/tk8.5.10/unix

AWK Scripts for NS2 to process data from Trace Files

AWK Scripts are very good in processing the data from the log (trace files) which we get from NS2. If you want to process the trace file manually, here is the detailHere is a sample of trace file from NS2 (However ns2 supports a new type of trace file also), but this post will make you understand the old trace format only.r 0.030085562 _0_ MAC  --- 0 message 32 [0 ffffffff 1 800] ------- [1:255 -1:255 32 0] r 0.030110562 _0_ RTR  --- 0 message 32 [0 ffffffff 1 800] ------- [1:255 -1:255 32 0] s 1.119926192 _0_ RTR  --- 1 message 32 [0 0 0 0] ------- [0:255 -1:255 32 0]
AWK Scripts are very good in processing the data column wise. For example
the first column in the above trace file represents r, s which indicates receive, sent respectively. If we want to trace the entire r and s alone from this trace file we can represent it as $1
So
$1 represents ACTION
$2 Time
$3 Node ID
$4 Layer
$5 Flags
$6 seqno
$7 type
$8 Size
$14 Energy (if the network nodes includes EnergyModel)To run the awk script in Li…
