Installing ns-3.37 and ns-3.35 in Ubuntu | Ubuntu 22.04 | NS3

Multiple Versions of ns3 in Ubuntu 22.04 In this post, we are going to install two versions of ns3 namely ns-3.35 and ns-3.37  My OS is : Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Long Term Support) ns-3.35 uses waf and (./waf --run scratch/first)  ns-3.37 uses cmake  (./ns3 run scratch/first.cc) So we will install both the packages  Go through the video for complete instructions To start with  $ sudo apt update  $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev g++ python3 python3-dev pkg-config sqlite3 cmake python3-setuptools git qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar gsl-bin libgsl-dev libgslcblas0 wireshark tcpdump sqlite sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev  libxml2 libxml2-dev libc6-dev libc6-dev-i386 libclang-dev llvm-dev automake python3-pip libxml2 libxml2-dev libboost-all-dev  I have downloaded both the versions of ns3 fr

Queuing Models in NS2

M/M/1 is a system with poisson arrival time, servicing exponentially and a queue of unlimited capacity and type of FIFO Queue. This is the simplest queuing system.  NS2 supports various distributions like pareto, exponential, constant, unifrom, etc to handle the network dynamics and metrics.
So it is very easy to test the given network link to monitor a given queue using any of these queuing models. The listing 3 and 4 are monitoring the link when DropTail queue is used with a capacity of finite and infinite.
Listing 13.3 uses infinite capacity and Listing 13.4 uses Finite capacity The output screen shot is shown below the scripts for further understanding

Listing 3 – M/M/1 Queuing Model
#new Simulator creation
set ns [new Simulator]
#trace file creation for capturing the UDP data
set tf [open out.tr w]
$ns trace-all $tf

#setting the exponential distribution param
set lambda 30.0
set mu     33.0

#creation of nodes
set n1 [$ns node]
set n2 [$ns node]
#The queue limit is 1Lakh as the capacity is infinite. Simulation will take # more time when the limit is increased.
set link [$ns simplex-link $n1 $n2 100kb 0ms DropTail]
$ns queue-limit $n1 $n2 100000

# generate random interarrival times and packet sizes
set InterArrivalTime [new RandomVariable/Exponential]
$InterArrivalTime set avg_ [expr 1/$lambda]
set pktSize [new RandomVariable/Exponential]
$pktSize set avg_ [expr 100000.0/(8*$mu)]

#create new agent UDP
set src [new Agent/UDP]
$ns attach-agent $n1 $src

# queue monitoring and send the output to queue.out file
set qmon [$ns monitor-queue $n1 $n2 [open queue.out w] 0.1]
$link queue-sample-timeout

proc finish {} {
    global ns tf
    $ns flush-trace
    close $tf
    exit 0
}

proc sendpacket {} {
    global ns src InterArrivalTime pktSize
    set time [$ns now]
    $ns at [expr $time + [$InterArrivalTime value]] "sendpacket"
    set bytes [expr round ([$pktSize value])]
    $src send $bytes
}

set sink [new Agent/Null]
$ns attach-agent $n2 $sink
$ns connect $src $sink
$ns at 0.0001 "sendpacket"
$ns at 1000.0 "finish"

$ns run
To see the output of the above script, execute the following in the terminal
Prompt] gawk '{ print $1, $4, $5, $6, $7, $8, $9, $10, $11 }' queue.out > qm.pre
Prompt] xgraph qm.pre -geometry 500x500 -t “MM1 Queuing Example”

In the above Listing 13.3, large buffers are used to avoid losses. One can use smaller buffers and observe losses. The way to compute the loss probability from the simulation is simply to divide the total number of losses by the total number of arrivals, both given in the last line of the monitor-queue file. The command
$src set packetSize_ 100000
may be added.
The loss may be computed using the formula
P = pow(p,k)/Pow(p,i);
