Link State Routing in NS3 - Wired Network

Link state routing in ns3

There are two varieties of protocols that deals with wired networks namely distance vector routing and link state routing, 

As per the wikipedia, Distance-vector routing protocols, which work by having each node share its routing table with its neighbours, in a link-state protocol the only information passed between nodes is connectivity related. Link-state algorithms are sometimes characterized informally as each router, "telling the world about its neighbors.

This exercise can be one of the lab exercises of many universities in India. There are many more exercises to follow. If one understand this video, they can able to simulate any network design and run it successfully in ns3.

In this blog post, I am not going to explain the concepts of link state routing, but will explain how to configure the nodes to use link state routing in ns3. 

Please find the video for the source code explanation and compilation in ns3 on link state routing protocol

Here is the step to run the LSR and compile it to get the details.

Scenario is
Link State Routing (LSR)

Here is the source code from GITHUB

How to Run this file in ns3
This file have to be stored in ns-3.29/scratch folder
open a terminal 

$ cd ns-allinone-3.29/ns-3.29/
$ ./waf --run scratch/LinkStaterouting

To run network animation

Open a new terminal 

$] cd ns-allinone-3.29/netanim-3.108/
$] ./NetAnim

The output is shown like this
Link State Routing

Open a new Terminal

$] cd tracemetrics-1.4.0/
$] java -jar tracemetrics.jar
