Tracegraph installation in Ubuntu 13.10 (64 bit)

Installing Tracegraph in Linux is always a challenge and that too in a 64 BIT operating System. This post will help the readers in installing the tracegraph comfortably in Ubuntu 13.10 (64 bit OS).

You may refer the older post too: http://www.nsnam.com/2013/02/how-to-install-tracegraph-in-64-bit.html

Ubuntu 13.10 is revamped with great features and also there are some limitations while installing 32 bit softwares in 64 bit OS.

So here are the steps in Installing Tracegraph in Ubuntu 13.10

  • Download the Tracegraph.tar.gz file and copy it to the /home/username folder
  • Enter the following commands one by one 
  • Untar it by entering the command, "tar xvzf tracegraph.tar.gz"
  • cd tracegraph202
  • ./trgraph  (if this command gives you ./trgraph command not found, the follow the next step)
  • sudo apt-get install  lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 libxi6 libxtst6 libxrender1 libxtst6:i386 libXp6:i386 libXt6:i386
  • The above command will fetch various libraries from the internet sources and downloaded and then try ./trgraph (you can see three windows popping out as indicated in the figure)

Don't forget to set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH for the shared object libraries as given below
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/home/username/tracegraph202/bin/glnx86/

If the path for NS2 is already set, the append this line to the existing LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable as given below
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/first/path:/second/path:/home/username/tracegraph202/bin/glnx86/

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

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
