Welcome to LQ.

The package : sudo apt-get install xgraph

Please have a look into the examples in the xgraph source code :
xgraph-12.1/examples/ \
Animation.xg bar.xg surface2.xg surface3.xg surface.xg xgtest.xg
... to know the possible formatting.
Also, the suffix xg, xgr : Not really required, is just an indicator,
that tells xgraph can run it. Suffix .txt or no suffix will do as well.
Two small examples are attached : data.txt, dropRate.txt.

Asking questions about xgraph probably means, you will also want the application.

'sudo apt-get install xgraph' is the command to install the package xgraph.

""Ubuntu Documentation: Installing applications.""

dear sir:
i use ns-2.34 on ubuntu,i want to plot xgraph(throughput,delay,deliver ratio vs time).

when i run avgStats.awk with the command awk -f avgStats.awk avgStats.tr > avgStats.xgr in a terminal,it creates a file avgState.xgr but it's an empty file, i don't know the reason----------------(1)
how i can convert awk file into xgr file?
i use awk files because it include all parameters i want to plot to get the results against time.
according a reply from lq, i put the command:

awk -f avgStats.awk src=2 dst=3 flow=0 pkt=1000 test.tr > stats.out

but it give the below message :

awk: avgStats.awk:4: fatal: cannot open file `test.tr' for reading (No such file or directory)
(it can't read 'test.tr')---------------------------(2)
what i do? thanks in advance------------------------(3)

'avgStats.awk' is a script, that will write six lines of statistics
from some, not all files.tr. See the file read.me.
The package trace2stats (which means trace to statistics) was shown
as the first hit in a Google search, mainly because it was first.
You are supposed to find / read all other hits yourself.

Also : Read the awk documentation
http://www.chemie.fu-berlin.de/chemn...toc.html#TOC10

If you want to know how plots can be done in ns2, then run the included examples.
1) ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34/tcl/ex/wireless-scripts/runall.cmd
2) ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34/tcl/ex/red-pd/runall.sh
..... And none of these use xgraph, but gv and gnuplot, to show the result.

I don't think, you can use "the awk files". Most of the awk scripting
is for a specific trace file. You will simply have to continue your search,
or write a script yourself. Hence the awk documentation link.
And awk scripts are not used, if things are too complex ..
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-awk-870934/#8

Run the examples ns-allinone-2.34/ns-2.34/tcl/ex/wireless-scripts/runall.cmd etc.
to see how things can work.
