WSN Flooding Routing Protocol (WFRP) in Network Simulator (NS-2.35)

Installation of WFRP (WSN flooding routing protocol) as given in the site http://elmurod.net/en/index.php/archives/157.
This post will help you to install the wfrp protocol in the Network Simulator 2.35 (ns-2.35) and you can run this without any bug or error
Here are the files to be corrected and downloaded: Download this Zip file and uncompress it and copy it to the relevant folders as given below (Instead of manual changes, you can copy the files and recompile) – Please take a backup of your NS-2.35 folder as these changes may affect your existing recompiled sources.
Copy these three files (wfrp.cc, wfrp.h, wfrp_packet.h)  in the folder called ~ns-2.35/wfrp
  • ~ns-2.35/Makefile.in
  • ~ns-2.35/queue/priqueue.cc
  • ~ns-2.35/common/packet.h
  • ~ns-2.35/trace/cmu-trace.h
  • ~ns-2.35/trace/cmu-trace.cc
  • ~ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-packet.tcl
  • ~ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-lib.tcl
  • ~ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-agent.tcl
  • ~ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-mobilenode.tcl
Here are the following changes (changes gives in the Black Circle) in ~ns-2.35/queue/priqueue.cc
wfrp1
here are the 3 changes in the ~ns-2.35/common/packet.h file
wfrp2
wfrp3
wfrp4
changes in the ~ns-2.35/trace/cmu-trace.cc  file
wfrp5
~ns-2.35/trace/cmu-trace.h
wfrp6
~ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-packet.tcl
wfrp7
~ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-lib.tcl (two changes)
wfrp9
wfrp10
~ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-mobile.tcl
wfrp11
Here is the Makefile.in changes
wfrp12
If you don’t have patience to see the images above, please look the video for doing the WFRP Protocol
Once all these steps are completed, Open the terminal and go to the ~ns-2.35/ folder and give these commands one by one
$ ./configure
$ make
If no errors in the compilation, execute the wfrp_802_15_4.tcl (given in the zip file), using
$ ns wfrp_802_15_4.tcl 
This file will generate the trace and nam file. Use the NAM file to see the animation using
$ nam filename.nam

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
