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 .

This API is used to change direction and speed of movement of the mobilenodes. The mobilenodes move about within an area whose boundary is defined in this example as mXm. Node1 is in range with nodes 0 and 2 and can communicate with both of them.
Marc Greis’ Tutorial for the UCB/LBNL/VINT Network Simulator “ns”
You can write your Tcl scripts in any text editor like joe or emacs. First, we need to configure nodes before we can create them. We are going to use the default value of flat addressing; Also lets turn on only AgentTrace and RouterTrace; You can experiment with the traces by turning all of them on.
First of all, you need to create a simulator object. Tutoriql suggest that now you start some experiments with nam and the Tcl script.
Everything else depends on the Tcl script. Other uses that CMU has found for the information are: Note that all wireless traces starts with WL in their first field. The array used to define these variables, val is not global as it used to be in gries earlier wireless scripts.
Next run the simulation in the usual tutkrial type at prompt: We begin our script simple-wireless. If you want to download a copy of simple-wireless. Also we are going to set up nam traces. Identifying the frequency and size of partitions.
We will call this file simple-wireless. 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 gdeis added here, please send email to ns-users mailing list.
II. Finding Documentation
In order to download a copy of the file click here. For details and available optional values of these variables, see chapter 15 mobile networking in ns of ns documentation.
You can find the relevant parameters for each agent type in the ns manual page. We are going to simulate a very simple 2-node wireless scenario. So the next step is to create an agent object that sends data from node n0, and another agent object that receives the data on node n1. However the node movements gteis this example shall be read from a node-movement file called scentest.
If not, I suggest you either go to the web page for the VINT project or the web page for ns version 2. The topography is broken up into grids and the default value of grid resolution is 1. In this section, you are going to learn to use the mobile wireless tutorail model available in ns.
Packets are exchanged between the tjtorial as they come within hearing range of one another. Initially both the nodes are far apart and thus TCP pkts are dropped by node0 as it cannot hear from node1. You are going to get an error message like ‘nam: Dumping of traffic tutoriwl and thus visualization of data pkt movements in nam for wireless scenarios is still not supported future work. Run the script by typing at the prompt: Next add the following lines for providing initial position of nodes in nam.
Now you can save the file and start the simulation again. You can actually save the file now and try to run it with ‘ns example1. The mobilenodes move about within an area whose boundary is defined in this example as mXm. Pkts start getting dropped as the nodes move away from one another.
You are going to learn how to set up nodes and links, how to send data from one node to another, how to monitor a futorial and how to start nam from your simulation script to visualize your simulation. Creating Output Files for Xgraph. The usage of movement pattern files and feeding of next hop info to God shall be shown in the example in the next sub-section. In addition to node-movements, traffic flows that are setup between the mobilenodes, are also read from a traffic-pattern file called cbrtest.
The next lines create a Null agent which acts as traffic sink and attach it to node n1. Details on generation of node movement files are covered in section XI. How to start Now we are going to write a ‘template’ that you can use for all of the first Tcl scripts.
The nodes start out initially at two opposite ends of the boundary. There are better sources for that which I am going to list in Section II. We begin our script simple-wireless. The setdest program see section XI. You can find the relevant parameters for each agent type in the ns manual page.
However as mentioned earlier no traffic flow can be seen not supported as yet. The two CBR agents have to be connected to the Null agent. See cbrtest to find out more about the traffic flows that are setup. The array used to define tutoria, variables, val is not grris as it used to be in the earlier wireless scripts.
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. The nominal range is either provided as an argument to the programs, or extracted from the header in node-movement pattern files.
