                                                 08.02.2006
Tutorial Outline

Part I
   NS fundamentals
   Wired world
   Walk-thru an example NS script
Part II
   Visualization tools & other utilities
   Help and references
Outcome of this tutorial
   You know the concept of ns2
   You are able to set-up a network topology on your own (with nam-
   editor)
   You are able to add traffic like ftp/telnet or cbr to your simulation
   You are able to start the ns and the nam.
   You understand the ns-script code generated by nam-editor
What Is NS?

Started as REAL in 1989
Discrete event, packet level simulator
Written in C++ with Otcl front-end
Wired, wireless and emulation modes
Link layer and up for most wired
Additional lower layers for wireless
Platforms

Most UNIX and UNIX-like systems
  Linux
  FreeBSD
  SunOS/Solaris
  HP/SGI (with some tweaking)
Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP
  Best based on cygwin
  Tips on build available
  However validation tests don’t work
ns Architecture

    Object-oriented (C++ and Otcl)
    C++ for “data”
      Per packet action
      Algorithms over large data sets, per packet handling in
      C++
    OTcl for control
      Configuration, “one-time” task
      Fast to run, quick to re-configure
      Fine grained object composition
+   Compromise between composibility and speed
–   Learning and debugging
OTcl and C++: The Duality




  Pure C++                            Pure OTcl
   objects                             objects




             C++/OTcl split objects
 C++                                       OTcl

                      ns
Basic tcl

set a 43
set b 27
proc test { a b } {
   set c [expr $a + $b]
   set d [expr [expr $a - $b] * $c]
   for {set k 0} {$k < 10} {incr k} {
    if {$k < 5} {
      puts “k < 5, pow = [expr pow($d, $k)]”
    } else {
      puts “k >= 5, mod = [expr $d % $k]”
    }
  }
}


To invoke tclshell, type “tclsh”; To exit the shell type “exit”
Basic OTcl

                                       set mom [new Mom]
                                       $mom set age_ 45
Class Mom
                                       set kid [new Kid]
Mom instproc greet {} {
                                       $kid set age_ 15
   $self instvar age_
   puts “$age_ years old
   mom: How are you doing?”            $mom greet
}                                      $kid greet

Class Kid -superclass Mom
Kid instproc greet {} {
   $self instvar age_
   puts “$age_ years old
   kid: What’s up, dude?”
}

To invoke otclshell, type “otclsh”;
   To exit the shell type “exit”; to
   run this example type “ns”
   (otherwise new will not work!!!)
Hello World - Interactive Mode

sunray01>ns
% set ns [new Simulator]
_o3
% $ns at 1 “puts “Hello World!””
1
% $ns at 1.5 “exit”
2
% $ns run
Hello World!
sunray01>
Hello World - Batch Mode

simple.tcl
   set   ns [new Simulator]
   $ns   at 1 “puts “Hello World!””
   $ns   at 1.5 “exit”
   $ns   run
sunray01> ns simple.tcl
Hello World!
sunray01>
Event Driven Simulation

Scheduler – main controller of events
Scheduler clock - simulator virtual time
[$ns_ now] returns the current simulator time
Event queue - holds events in the order of their firing times
Events have a firing time and a handler function
Two types of events possible – packets and “at-events”
Discrete Event Scheduler


       Event
       Queue           time_, uid_, next_, handler_
                                      Dispatch
Head_ ->       Deque
Head_ ->                  handler_ -> handle()
                                       Reschedule
           Insert      time_, uid_, next_, handler_



  Example:
  $ns at 0.5 “$ftp start”
  $ns at 4.5 “$ftp stop”
  $ns run
Elements of Ns-2

Create the event scheduler
[Turn on tracing]
Create network
Setup routing
[Insert errors]
Create transport connection
Create traffic
Are you Confused?
Before getting into even more Details let‘s practice
a bit

Login with your account name

Open a shell; create subdirectory „ns-test“ and
move there

Type quot;nam &quot;
Example

Create the following topology


        n0                        n1

Attach a TCP Agent and a TCPSink and connect an
ftp application on top of TCP
Save the simulation as „ftpexample.ns“
Run the simulation
Start the vizualization tool
Example (cont.)

Example Output and ns script




           n0                                       n1

set ns [new Simulator]
set n0 [$ns node]                    set ftp [new Application/FTP]
set n1 [$ns node]                    $ftp attach-agent $tcp
                                     $ns at 0.2 quot;$ftp startquot;
                                     $ns at 1.2 ”exitquot;
$ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 1.5Mb        $ns run
  10ms DropTail
set tcp [$ns create-connection TCP
   $n0 TCPSink $n1 0]
Creating Event Scheduler




Create event scheduler
  set ns [new Simulator]
Schedule events
  $ns at <time> <event>
  <event>: any legitimate ns/tcl commands
Start scheduler
  $ns run
Tracing



  Trace packets on all links
     $ns trace-all [open test.out w]
<event> <time> <from> <to> <pkt>    <size> -- <fid> <src>
   <dst> <seq> <attr>
    + 1 0 2 cbr 210 ------- 0 0.0   3.1 0   0
    - 1 0 2 cbr 210 ------- 0 0.0   3.1 0   0
    r 1.00234 0 2 cbr 210 -------   0 0.0   3.1 0 0


  Trace packets on all links in nam format
     $ns namtrace-all [open test.nam w]
     $ns namtrace-all-wireless [open wtest.nam w]
Tracing

Turn on tracing on specific links
  $ns trace-queue $n0 $n1
  $ns namtrace-queue $n0 $n1
Trace-all commands must appear
immediately after creating scheduler
Tracing

Event tracing
  $ns eventtrace-all [$file]
  Add eventtrace after trace-all as trace-all file is used as
  default
  Example script: ~ns/tcl/ex/tcp-et.tcl
Creating Network Topology



Nodes
  set n0 [$ns node]
  set n1 [$ns node]
Links and queuing
  $ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 <bandwidth> <delay>
  <queue_type>
  <queue_type>: DropTail, RED, CBQ, FQ, SFQ,
  DRR
  $ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 5Mb 2ms DropTail
Inserting Errors



Creating Error Module
   set loss_module [new ErrorModel]
   $loss_module set rate_ 0.01
   $loss_module unit pkt
   $loss_module ranvar [new
   RandomVariable/Uniform]
   $loss_module drop-target [new Agent/Null]
Inserting Error Module
   $ns lossmodel $loss_module $n0 $n1
Network Dynamics

Link failures
  Hooks in routing module to reflect routing
  changes
Four models
$ns   rtmodel Trace <config_file> $n0 $n1
$ns   rtmodel Exponential {<params>} $n0 $n1
$ns   rtmodel Deterministic {<params>} $n0 $n1
$ns   rtmodel-at <time> up|down $n0 $n1

Parameter list
[<start>] <up_interval> <down_interval> [<finish>]
Setup Routing

Unicast
  $ns rtproto <type>
  <type>: Static, Session, DV, LS, Manual or hierarchical
Multicast
  $ns multicast (right after [new Simulator])
  $ns mrtproto <type>
  <type>: CtrMcast, DM, ST, BST
Creating Connection: TCP

One-way TCP sending agent [Tahoe, Reno,
NewReno, Sack, Vegas and Fack]
  set tcp [new Agent/TCP]
  set tcpsink [new Agent/TCPSink]
  $ns attach-agent $n0 $tcp
  $ns attach-agent $n1 $tcpsink
  $ns connect $tcp $tcpsink
Transport

NS-2 Tutorial

  • 1. Institut für Telematik | Universität zu Lübeck Ns2 Tutorial Ns2 Tutorial 08.02.2006
  • 2. Tutorial Outline Part I NS fundamentals Wired world Walk-thru an example NS script Part II Visualization tools & other utilities Help and references Outcome of this tutorial You know the concept of ns2 You are able to set-up a network topology on your own (with nam- editor) You are able to add traffic like ftp/telnet or cbr to your simulation You are able to start the ns and the nam. You understand the ns-script code generated by nam-editor
  • 3. What Is NS? Started as REAL in 1989 Discrete event, packet level simulator Written in C++ with Otcl front-end Wired, wireless and emulation modes Link layer and up for most wired Additional lower layers for wireless
  • 4. Platforms Most UNIX and UNIX-like systems Linux FreeBSD SunOS/Solaris HP/SGI (with some tweaking) Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP Best based on cygwin Tips on build available However validation tests don’t work
  • 5. ns Architecture Object-oriented (C++ and Otcl) C++ for “data” Per packet action Algorithms over large data sets, per packet handling in C++ OTcl for control Configuration, “one-time” task Fast to run, quick to re-configure Fine grained object composition + Compromise between composibility and speed – Learning and debugging
  • 6. OTcl and C++: The Duality Pure C++ Pure OTcl objects objects C++/OTcl split objects C++ OTcl ns
  • 7. Basic tcl set a 43 set b 27 proc test { a b } { set c [expr $a + $b] set d [expr [expr $a - $b] * $c] for {set k 0} {$k < 10} {incr k} { if {$k < 5} { puts “k < 5, pow = [expr pow($d, $k)]” } else { puts “k >= 5, mod = [expr $d % $k]” } } } To invoke tclshell, type “tclsh”; To exit the shell type “exit”
  • 8. Basic OTcl set mom [new Mom] $mom set age_ 45 Class Mom set kid [new Kid] Mom instproc greet {} { $kid set age_ 15 $self instvar age_ puts “$age_ years old mom: How are you doing?” $mom greet } $kid greet Class Kid -superclass Mom Kid instproc greet {} { $self instvar age_ puts “$age_ years old kid: What’s up, dude?” } To invoke otclshell, type “otclsh”; To exit the shell type “exit”; to run this example type “ns” (otherwise new will not work!!!)
  • 9. Hello World - Interactive Mode sunray01>ns % set ns [new Simulator] _o3 % $ns at 1 “puts “Hello World!”” 1 % $ns at 1.5 “exit” 2 % $ns run Hello World! sunray01>
  • 10. Hello World - Batch Mode simple.tcl set ns [new Simulator] $ns at 1 “puts “Hello World!”” $ns at 1.5 “exit” $ns run sunray01> ns simple.tcl Hello World! sunray01>
  • 11. Event Driven Simulation Scheduler – main controller of events Scheduler clock - simulator virtual time [$ns_ now] returns the current simulator time Event queue - holds events in the order of their firing times Events have a firing time and a handler function Two types of events possible – packets and “at-events”
  • 12. Discrete Event Scheduler Event Queue time_, uid_, next_, handler_ Dispatch Head_ -> Deque Head_ -> handler_ -> handle() Reschedule Insert time_, uid_, next_, handler_ Example: $ns at 0.5 “$ftp start” $ns at 4.5 “$ftp stop” $ns run
  • 13. Elements of Ns-2 Create the event scheduler [Turn on tracing] Create network Setup routing [Insert errors] Create transport connection Create traffic
  • 14. Are you Confused? Before getting into even more Details let‘s practice a bit Login with your account name Open a shell; create subdirectory „ns-test“ and move there Type quot;nam &quot;
  • 15. Example Create the following topology n0 n1 Attach a TCP Agent and a TCPSink and connect an ftp application on top of TCP Save the simulation as „ftpexample.ns“ Run the simulation Start the vizualization tool
  • 20. Example Output and ns script n0 n1 set ns [new Simulator] set n0 [$ns node] set ftp [new Application/FTP] set n1 [$ns node] $ftp attach-agent $tcp $ns at 0.2 quot;$ftp startquot; $ns at 1.2 ”exitquot; $ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 1.5Mb $ns run 10ms DropTail set tcp [$ns create-connection TCP $n0 TCPSink $n1 0]
  • 21. Creating Event Scheduler Create event scheduler set ns [new Simulator] Schedule events $ns at <time> <event> <event>: any legitimate ns/tcl commands Start scheduler $ns run
  • 22. Tracing Trace packets on all links $ns trace-all [open test.out w] <event> <time> <from> <to> <pkt> <size> -- <fid> <src> <dst> <seq> <attr> + 1 0 2 cbr 210 ------- 0 0.0 3.1 0 0 - 1 0 2 cbr 210 ------- 0 0.0 3.1 0 0 r 1.00234 0 2 cbr 210 ------- 0 0.0 3.1 0 0 Trace packets on all links in nam format $ns namtrace-all [open test.nam w] $ns namtrace-all-wireless [open wtest.nam w]
  • 23. Tracing Turn on tracing on specific links $ns trace-queue $n0 $n1 $ns namtrace-queue $n0 $n1 Trace-all commands must appear immediately after creating scheduler
  • 24. Tracing Event tracing $ns eventtrace-all [$file] Add eventtrace after trace-all as trace-all file is used as default Example script: ~ns/tcl/ex/tcp-et.tcl
  • 25. Creating Network Topology Nodes set n0 [$ns node] set n1 [$ns node] Links and queuing $ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 <bandwidth> <delay> <queue_type> <queue_type>: DropTail, RED, CBQ, FQ, SFQ, DRR $ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 5Mb 2ms DropTail
  • 26. Inserting Errors Creating Error Module set loss_module [new ErrorModel] $loss_module set rate_ 0.01 $loss_module unit pkt $loss_module ranvar [new RandomVariable/Uniform] $loss_module drop-target [new Agent/Null] Inserting Error Module $ns lossmodel $loss_module $n0 $n1
  • 27. Network Dynamics Link failures Hooks in routing module to reflect routing changes Four models $ns rtmodel Trace <config_file> $n0 $n1 $ns rtmodel Exponential {<params>} $n0 $n1 $ns rtmodel Deterministic {<params>} $n0 $n1 $ns rtmodel-at <time> up|down $n0 $n1 Parameter list [<start>] <up_interval> <down_interval> [<finish>]
  • 28. Setup Routing Unicast $ns rtproto <type> <type>: Static, Session, DV, LS, Manual or hierarchical Multicast $ns multicast (right after [new Simulator]) $ns mrtproto <type> <type>: CtrMcast, DM, ST, BST
  • 29. Creating Connection: TCP One-way TCP sending agent [Tahoe, Reno, NewReno, Sack, Vegas and Fack] set tcp [new Agent/TCP] set tcpsink [new Agent/TCPSink] $ns attach-agent $n0 $tcp $ns attach-agent $n1 $tcpsink $ns connect $tcp $tcpsink
  • 30. Transport n0 n1 Port Port Classifier dst_=1.0 Classifier dst_=0.0 Addr Agent/TCP Addr Agent/TCPSink Classifier 0 agents_ Classifier 0 agents_ 0 dmux_ 1 dmux_ Link n0-n1 entry_ 1 entry_ 0 classifier_ classifier_ Link n1-n0 set tcp [new Agent/TCP] $ns attach-agent $n0 $tcp
  • 31. Creating Traffic: On Top of TCP FTP set ftp [new Application/FTP] $ftp attach-agent $tcp Telnet set telnet [new Application/Telnet] $telnet attach-agent $tcp
  • 32. Application n0 n1 Port Application/FTP Port Classifier dst_=1.0 Classifier dst_=0.0 Addr Agent/TCP Addr Agent/TCPSink Classifier 0 agents_ Classifier 0 agents_ 0 dmux_ 1 dmux_ Link n0-n1 entry_ 1 entry_ 0 classifier_ classifier_ Link n1-n0 set ftp [new Application/FTP] $tcp attach-agent $ftp
  • 33. Plumbing: Packet Flow n0 n1 Port Application/FTP Port Classifier dst_=1.0 Classifier dst_=0.0 Addr Agent/TCP Addr Agent/TCPSink Classifier 0 Classifier 0 0 1 Link n0-n1 entry_ 1 entry_ 0 Link n1-n0
  • 34. Network Topology - Link n0 n1 n1 head_ entry_ enqT_ queue_ deqT_ link_ ttl_ Tracing drophead_ drpT_ $ns duplex-link $n0 $n1 1Mb 10ms DropTail
  • 35. Summary: Generic Script Structure set ns [new Simulator] # [Turn on tracing] # Create topology # Setup packet loss, link dynamics # Create routing agents # Create: # - multicast groups # - protocol agents # - application and/or setup traffic sources # Post-processing procs # Start simulation
  • 36. Example - TCP Simple scenario with TCP and UDP connections n0 n5 TCP UDP recvr n1 n2 5Mb 5Mb 2ms 1.5Mb 2ms 10ms n4 n3 UDP TCPSink
