# 30

? Is this a new install of an ns-allinone-2.26 ? ?
→ → The DRAND install cannot be used for ZMAC.

Are you quite sure that you are using the "zmac Makefile.in" ?

'grep -n logging zmac-Makefile.in.txt' shows this :
"267 : pushback/logging-data-struct.o \"

... There should be no words like "pushback/logging-data-stcp"
in any of the files in ns-2.26.

No. Only the two hours, when I worked with two ns-2.26 builds today.
So now it's your turn to do some hard work .. again .

You know, it's like this ... a week to learn how to build ns2.
And three? months to learn how to use it.

Hi again knudfl

Have you ever installed any program for debugging in NS2?

I am trying install Eclipse and gdb but I don't get that this programs work.

Thanks

Hi again,

I have done a lot of experiments with DRAND and it works perfectly.

And I installed ZMAC correctly but when I want use this protocol following the instruction in http://www4.ncsu.edu/~rhee/export/zm.../zmac/zmac.htm don't work correctly.

My order is this:

ns simZMAC.tcl -numsources 3 -zmacMode 1 -interval 10 -sinknode 83 -valuefile salida.tr -maxX 300 -maxY 300 -nn 84 -ack 0 -to 3 -tno 6 -timeSyncErrorFlag 0 -timeSyncErrorValue 100

And the error is the next:


Setting slot size to 0.001124
num_nodes is set 84
values-file lookup failed

(_o20 cmd line 1)
invoked from within
"_o20 cmd values-file salida.tr"
invoked from within
"catch "$self cmd $args" ret"
(procedure "_o20" line 2)

invoked from within

"uplevel source.orig[list $fileName]"
(procedure "source" line 12)

"source "multiHopTopoGen.tcl""
(file "simZMAC.tcl" line 99)

I hope that you can help me again,

Thanks in advance

# 36

Testing with the "ns-2.26-ZMAC" :

cd ns-allinone-2.26/ns-2.26/zmacTcl/
./ns-zmac simZMAC.tcl -numsources 3 -zmacMode 1 -interval 10 -sinknode 83 -valuefile salida.tr -maxX 300 -maxY 300 -nn 84 -ack 0 -to 3 -tno 6 -timeSyncErrorFlag 0 -timeSyncErrorValue 100

The reply is
Code:
Setting slot size to 0.001124
num_nodes is set 84
.. and two trace files are created : out.tr , salida.tr

.

The binary "ns-zmac" is a backup copy of the 'ns' from the "ns-2.26-ZMAC" build.

Z-MAC requires each node to know its TDMA slot. This is achieved using DRAND.

Looks like it could be an advantage to have two (more?) installs of ns-2.26.
( Make a backup of the binary 'ns' as 'ns-orig', if you are going to reuse the ns-2.26.)
NS-2.26 is first used with DRAND. If you then afterwords patch the same
install with ZMAC, you will not be able to go back and do more DRAND work.

A) The DRAND ns-2.26.
http://www4.ncsu.edu/~rhee/export/zm...rand/drand.htm
tar xvf ns-allinone-2.26.tar.gz && patch -p0 < ns-2.26-gcc410.patch
cd ns-allinone-2.26/ns-2.26/ && tar xvf drandNS2.tar.gz
Then copy the new files ns-packet.tcl packet.h mac-802_11.cc cmu-trace.cc
to their destinations.
And the new Makefile.in : cp -a drand-Makefile.in.txt Makefile.in
cd ../ && export CC=gcc34 CXX=g++34 && ./install
And the "DRAND ns" binary is created.
Suggest : Make a backup : cd ns-2.26/ && cp ns ns-drand


B) The ZMAC ns-2.26
http://www4.ncsu.edu/~rhee/export/zm.../zmac/zmac.htm
tar xvf ns-allinone-2.26.tar.gz && patch -p0 < ns-2.26-gcc410.patch
cd ns-allinone-2.26/ns-2.26/ && tar xvf zmac.tar.gz
cp zmac/* mac/
http://www4.ncsu.edu/~rhee/export/zm...mobilenode.tcl
>>> cp -a ns-mobilenode.tcl tcl/lib/
And the new Makefile.in : cp -a zmac-Makefile.in.txt Makefile.in
Delete the Makefile, and run 'make clean', if this is an ns-2.26 reuse.
cd ../ && export CC=gcc34 CXX=g++34 && ./install
Result : The "ZMAC ns" binary.
A backup : cd ns-2.26/ && cp ns ns-zmac

...
Please tell me what's the purpose of the attachment

The attached files are zmac-Makefile.in.txt, drand-Makefile.in.txt.
A Makefile.in is used by configure to create "Makefile".
That's also what ./install is doing : 1) Running ./configure
in the applications, 2) creating Makefile's, 3) running 'make'.

The purpose of attaching "Makefile.in" : Then you don't have to write it yourself.

I am not so clever to understand it .and I can see makefile.in in ns-allinone-2.26/ns-2.26 and I think there is only one makefile in ns2.26 .please help me and I am puzzled by the zmac addition process ,by the way I installed ns2.26 in windowsxp+cygwin.It is very kind of you ,thank you .

Thank you very much, knudfl. I have installed zmac and Drand in ns2.26 successfully, but I donít know what should I do next? To analysis out.tr or salida.tr? I have simulated s-mac ,and I used AWK language to analysis the out.tr and plotted all kinds of curves,but the out.tr of zmac is different and I do not know what should I do next, please give me a instruction, best wishes to you.
