Comparison of AODV, DSR and DSDV in ns2 - NS2 Tutorial # 9

Performance Evaluation of Adhoc Routing Protocols using NS2

Very old Project as well as a topic, but this will give an idea of how to compare multiple protocols or agents.

1 hour Project*

See the video for the full project


* - you should know ns2 already
should know how to write AWK scripts
Should know about energy model
Should know about wireless networks and protocols

To know the above concepts, check my Ns2 Lecture series videos in Youtube and come back to this video

AODV, DSDV and DSR
AODV - Adhoc On Demand Distance Vector
DSDV - Destination Sequenced Distance Vector
DSR - Dynamic Source Routing

Lcture 8 - AWK Scripts
Average throughput
Instant throughput
Residual Energy
Packet Delivery ratio

Going inside the project

Step 1:
Use the same network and same disntace, energy, etc when you compare multiple protocols

Step 2:
Generate Scenario, You need not write the code in TCL (of course you can modify).
We use NSG for creating a network. Refer my lecture series on NSG (NS2 scenario Generator)

$] java -jar NSG2.1.jar

As seen in the GUI, Create a network (for example with 17 nodes) and two nodes are moving
with a interference of 550 metres and tranmission range of 250metres.

Create a network with a AODV protocol

Create two copies of AODV protocol and name it as DSR.tcl and DSDV.tcl

$] cp AODV.tcl DSR.tcl
$] cp AODV.tcl DSDV.tcl


Three files are ready now called
AODV.tcl, DSR.tcl, DSDV.tcl

and now these three files using ns filename.tcl

$] ns AODV.tcl
$] ns DSR.tcl
$] ns DSDV.tcl
I have the three files and got 9 files namely
AODV.tr, DSDV.tr and DSR.tr
AODV.nam, DSDV.nam and DSR.nam

There is no energy coding, i need to implement that

DSR does not obey the queue model as specified for AODV,
Queue/DropTail/PriQueue  is not supported by DSR, we have to go for CMUPriQueue

DSR supports this queue called CMUPriQueue, it should reflect in the tcl code.

All the tcl files run successfully. now we are going to analyse the results and sometime plot the graphs too.

we have already written AWK scripts for Average throughput, instant throughput , residual energy and packet delivery ratio

average_throu.awk
instant_throu.awk
pdr.awk
resenergy.awk

To run these scripts we need awk interpreter as below

$] gawk -f resenergy.awk AODV.tr
$] gawk -f resenergy.awk DSDV.tr
$] gawk -f resenergy.awk DSR.tr

Whenvern you compare multiple protocols
Use three different sets of nodes

Small number of nodes (10 nos)
Medium number of nodes (20 to 30 nos)
Huge number of nodes (upto 100)

beyond 100 nodes, ns2 suffers.

in this case, we did it for 17 nodes only. You can do the rest.
So we are coming to the conclusion

Comparing protocols needs
1. Three minimum protocols (AODV, DSR, DSDV)
TCP, TCPReno, TCPVegas, FullTCP
2. number of nodes (small, medium and huge) as mentioned above, 10 nodes, 30 nodes, 100 nodes
3. Atleast three performance metrics, in this case we have, average throghput, instant througput, residual energy and packet delivery ratio
4. Strong knowledge on the protocols
5. AWK scripts to be known or atleast to be downloaded.
6. Design the network rather than coding the network, use scenario generators for ns2.

Our project is complete!!! Stay tuned

  1. can you please clear, where you have specified total packet size sending in awk script so that you are receiving 445 as a received packet during the calculation of avg. throughout?

This post shows how to install ns 3.34 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Prerequisites: Fresh installation of Ubuntu Version 20.04 LTS  ns3.34 can be downloaded from here Follow the video link for complete step by step instructions on the installation.  This version fixes the compilation issues of vanet-routing-compare.cc (bug in ns3.33)  Issue the following commands after opening a terminal  $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install g++ python3 python3-dev python-dev pkg-config sqlite3 python3-setuptools git qt5-default 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 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev tcpdump wireshark libxml2 libxml2-dev Unzip or untar the ns-allinone-3.34.tar.bz2 in the home folder (in my case its /home/pradeepkumar) $ cd ns-allinone-3.34/ $ ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests  Once the installation is completed, you may get an output show

Installation of ns3 in Windows 10 and Windows 11 OS using WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

This post shows how to install ns-3.33 in Windows 10 through WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) This posts works for Windows 11 also (I have tested it on a Windows 11 ISO and it works the Same way as mentioned in the following post.) This post will work for ns-3.3x version. Prerequisites : Install Windows Subsystem for Linux with GUI: Please refer the following video  System Information: OS used: Windows 10 and WSL (Ubuntu 20.04) GUI: XServer for Windows NS3 Version: ns-3.33 See the following complete video on how to install ns3 in Windows 10 Step 0 : Open XLaunch Step 1 :  Open WSL using PowerShell and open it as Administrator Command:/  wsl $ xfce4-session The GUI of Ubuntu Opens within Windows 10 OS.
