Wired Network Coding in ns2 - NS2 Tutorial # 4

This post shows the wired network coding in ns2. It uses 6 nodes ( 0 to 5) and exchange FTP/CBR packets between the nodes.
Please find the coding here.

#create a simulator object 
set ns [new Simulator]

#create a trace file, this file is for logging purpose 
set tracefile [open wired.tr w]
$ns trace-all $tracefile

#create a animation infomration or NAM file creation
set namfile [open wired.nam w]
$ns namtrace-all $namfile

#create nodes
set n0 [$ns node]
set n1 [$ns node]
set n2 [$ns node]
set n3 [$ns node]
set n4 [$ns node]
set n5 [$ns node]

#creation of link between nodes with DropTail Queue
#Droptail means Dropping the tail.
$ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 5Mb 2ms DropTail
$ns duplex-link $n2 $n1 10Mb 5ms DropTail
$ns duplex-link $n1 $n4 3Mb 10ms DropTail
$ns duplex-link $n4 $n3 100Mb 2ms DropTail
$ns duplex-link $n4 $n5 4Mb 10ms DropTail

#creation of Agents
#node 0 to Node 3
set udp [new Agent/UDP]
set null [new Agent/Null]
$ns attach-agent $n0 $udp
$ns attach-agent $n3 $null
$ns connect $udp $null

#creation of TCP Agent
set tcp [new Agent/TCP]
set sink [new Agent/TCPSink]
$ns attach-agent $n2 $tcp
$ns attach-agent $n5 $sink
$ns connect $tcp $sink

#creation of Application CBR, FTP
#CBR - Constant Bit Rate (Example nmp3 files that have a CBR or 192kbps, 320kbps, etc.)
#FTP - File Transfer Protocol (Ex: To download a file from a network)
set cbr [new Application/Traffic/CBR]
$cbr attach-agent $udp

set ftp [new Application/FTP]
$ftp attach-agent $tcp

#Start the traffic 
$ns at 1.0 "$cbr start"
$ns at 2.0 "$ftp start"

$ns at 10.0 "finish"

#the following procedure will be called at 10.0 seconds 
proc finish {} {
global ns tracefile namfile
$ns flush-trace
close $tracefile
close $namfile
exit 0
}

puts "Simulation is starting..."
$ns run

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
