Tracegraph - a graphing software to plot the trace files from NS2

Tracegraph is a third-party software that helps in plotting the graphs for NS2 and other networking simulation software. But the sad point is the software is not maintained by anyone and the happiest point is the software works fine still and it is free. 

You may download the tracegraph software from these locations.

For Windows: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/24623828/tracegraph202.rar

For Linux : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4nUSbTYSK4TSjNockFKbmRxdnM/view?usp=sharing&resourcekey=0-5rI_aWvptwWDvB01V6-ZDw

There are actually two files one with the matlab runtime library file and other is the original software tracegraph.

Tracegraph when opened, it opens 3 windows, 

  • one window to select the trace file (.tr) that was created by NS2 (depending on the size of the trace file , the processing time also varies)
  • The second window is the main window in which you can see the graphs for various performance characteristics like throughput, End to End Delay, jitter, etc in 2D and 3D facility. Even it can plot the histograms too.
  • The third window is nothing but the Simulation Information Windows, where you can see the packet loss, packet delivery, end-to-end delay for the total network, information about the intermediate nodes, source and destination nodes.

    Tracegraph exists for Windows as well as Linux, you can download both versions at these locations

    4. Hi, can you help me?

      The Tracegraph for Windows link seems to be dead. Is there any way I can get it?

      Thank You
