Only the first 94 pages are relevant for Tcl, the rest of the book is about Tk and more complicated aspects of Tcl. I also found a short OTcl Tutorial. Another good .

Two nodes, one link In this section we are going to define a very simple topology with two nodes that are connected maec a link. In addition to the variables LL, MAC, antenna etc that were declared at the beginning of the script, we now define some more parameters like the connection-pattern and node-movement file, x and y values for the topology boundary, a seed value for the random-number generator, time for the simulation to stop, for convinience.

So even though we may not utilise God for evaluation purposes, as in this example we still need to create God. For details on CMUTraces see chapter 15 of ns documentation. The configuration API for creating mobilenodes looks as follows: The nominal range is either provided as an argument to the programs, or extracted from the header in node-movement pattern files. Dumping of traffic data and thus visualization of data pkt movements in nam for wireless scenarios is still not supported future work.
You are going to get an error message like ‘nam: If you have any suggestions, find any bugs or problems, have any comments and also if you have any new well-documented examples that could be added here, please send email to ns-users mailing list. We will call greus file simple-wireless. And finally the command to start the simulation, puts “Starting Simulation Identifying grfis frequency and size of partitions. The next line connects the two nodes. Creating Output Files for Xgraph.
The two CBR agents have to be connected to the Null agent. Everything else depends on the Tcl script. Node1 is in range with nodes 0 and 2 and can communicate with both of them. If calcdest rejects a movement pattern file tutlrial have created, the easiest way to format it properly is often to load it into ad-hockey and then save it out again. Next after creation of mobilenodes source node-movement and connection pattern files that were defined earlier as val sc and val cp respectively.
As before, the mobilenodes move within the boundaries of a defined topology. A TCP connection is setup between the two mobilenodes. As greie extension to the previous sub-sectionwe are going to simulate a simple multihop wireless scenario consisting of 3 mobilenodes here. See Chapter 15 of ns documentation for details on wireless trace. However the node movements for this example shall be read from a node-movement file called scentest.
IV. The first Tcl script
I will explain find a way to distinguish the data flows from the two nodes from each other, and I will show how a queue can be monitored to see how tutorkal it is, and how many packets are being discarded. You can find the relevant parameters for each agent type in the ns manual page.
The array used to define these variables, val tutorixl not global as it used to be in the earlier wireless scripts. In this section, you are going to develop a Tcl script for ns grfis simulates a simple topology.
The setdest program see section XI. It will get clearer to you once you see what the tutoriial does. From the CMUTrace output we find nodes 0 and 2 are out of range and so cannot hear one another. Next run the simulation in the usual way type at prompt: They are listed as follows: By providing this information, the calculation of shortest distance between nodes by the god object during simulation runs, which can be quite time-consuming, is prevented.
The following two lines define the two nodes. MovementTrace, when turned on, shows the movement of the mobilenodes and the trace is marked with M in their 2nd field. You can write your Tcl scripts in any text editor like joe or emacs. This tutorial chapter uses new node APIs which are not available in the ns2.
First of all, you need to create a simulator object. In order to download a copy of the file click here.
The mobilenodes move about within an area whose boundary is defined in this example as mXm. Line 7 and 8 should be self-explaining.
Just as with any other ns simulation, we begin by creating a tcl script for the wireless simulation. You can save and start the script now.
