Mannasim–A sensor Network Simulator for NS2 (ns-2.35)

Mannasim is a third party tool for simulating the Wireless sensor networks with carbon monoxide sensor and some other sensors etc. It was developed for ns2.29 version and based on the internet users the mannasim was been installed on ns-2.34 also.
There are patches available to download for versions 2.29 and ns-2.34. But over these two years since the launch on ns-2.35, there are so many queries whether these tools are ready for ns-2.35, here is the answer for that.
The source code and other information has been taken from these sites.

Installation of Mannasim in ns-2.35
For mannasim to be installed, here are the following files need to be modified.
Click the link to download the Mannasim.tar.gz file for ns-2.35
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B4nUSbTYSK4TRWJfanYxWEFCcXM?usp=sharing 

The tar file contains a folder mannasim
Paste the entire folder inside the ~ns-2.35/ folder
and
inside the mannasim/ folder (there will be a ns-modified-folder/ that contains set of files to be pasted to different location)
mannasim
Copy the files from the ns-modified-files/ to these locations
ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/apps/udp.cc
ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/common/ns-process.h
ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/common/packet.cc
ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/common/packet.h
ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/Makefile.in
ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-default.tcl
ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-lib.tcl
Once everything is done, go to the terminal and type the commands one by one
./configure
make
If there are any errors, correct the errors (as per my OS, I used Linux Mint 15 64 bit, so no errors encountered)
Once the simulation is done, test the sensors using these following files
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/24623828/mannasim/mannasim-rede-plana.tcl
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/24623828/mannasim/mannasim-rede-hierarquica.tcl
run these files using
ns mannasim-rede-plana.tcl
ns mannasim-rede-hierarquica.tcl
Please see the video for further details.

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…

nam installation - Segmentation Fault (Solved)

If you are encountering "Segmentation Fault" error while running nam in Ubuntu 14.04 or Linux Mint 17+ editions, this post will be helpful for you.

Download the nam file from this link

First, remove the nam which was installed earlier using the following command 

pradeep@localhost $] sudo apt-get remove nam

and install the new nam which was downloaded just now. go to the folder where the file was downloaded and issue the following command

pradeep@localhost $]  sudo dpkg --install nam_1.15-10_i386.deb

See the screenshot below to install and use nam

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
