how to install ns2 trace analyzer on centos?


hi,

I have downloaded trace-analyzer-0.3.tar.gz. When I extract it i get the file trace-analyzer-2009-02-28. When I open it, it has different folders and a makefile. I have no idea how to install it or use it on my system. I have centos7 64-bit installed. Can somebody guide me with the appropriate commands and method to install it or use it?

I want to use this software to analyze my ns2 trace file.

TIA

Why ? Did you find any documentation ? Any traces of success stories ?


Easy to build :
Code:
$ cd trace-analyzer-2009-02-28/
$ make
.... I can find questions "How does it work", but it seems nobody got it to work ?

Thanks Knudfl. No, unfortunately no success stories anywhere.I am struggling with finding a trace analyzer for ns2 to work on centos. I was trying my luck with this one.

While searching I found another one as well, https://nsvisualtraceanalyzer.wordpress.com/ , developed by Fernando Roacha. But he has it on wordpress and its private, one needs to get permission. I get this message,

This site is marked private by its owner. If you would like to view it, you’ll need permission from the site owner. Request an invite and we'll send your username to the site owner for their approval.

I have created an account and requested an invite, but still waiting.

Can you guide me here, if you know of any software that can successfully analyze the ns2 trace files? Any help will be appreciated. TIA

Re #3.

NS2-VisualTraceAnalyzer-0.2.72.zip
https://files.downloadnow.com/s/soft...zer-0.2.72.zip

Works with Windows© 7 ?
. https://www.nsnam.com/2012/10/ns2-vi...-analyzer.html


Other : jTrana https://sourceforge.net/directory/os...trace+analyzer
Example, (old) start command :
Code:
java  -Xms256m -Xmx320m -classpath ".:./lib/alloy.jar:./lib/gnujaxp.jar:./lib/jcommon-0.9.6.jar:./lib/jfreechart-0.9.21.jar:./lib/junit.jar:./lib/servlet.jar:./lib/mysql-connector-java-5.0.0-beta-bin.jar" src.main.jTrana

The usually preferred `trace file analyzing tool´ is "ns2 APP-Tool"
. http://mohittahiliani.blogspot.dk/20...-tool-for.html
. https://github.com/WiNG-NITK/APP-Tool
.... but it's currently not working with CentOS 7.
APP-Tool is meant for Debian and `Debian clones´ like Ubuntu.
You can run a Debian / Ubuntu OS in a VirtualMachine ... to use APP-Tool.
(You cannot build a functional ns2 in a VirtualMachine like VirtualBox or wmWare, but it can be useful for app´s like APP-Tool. Use CentOS for creating the trace files ... upload "out.tr" to the cloud. Download to the Virtual OS for analyzing.)

Thankyou Knudfl. I downloaded the ns2-APP-Tool you gave the link for, in Ubuntu. Installed the required libraries i.e. python-gi and python-matplotlib using the apt-get install command. Copied my trace file in ubuntu. Ran the app and was successfully able to analyze the trace file.

The App however does not calculate handoff delay. I also searched the awk scripts, but wasn't able to find one. Can someone guide me in this regard. TIA.

Re #5.

Searching for "handoff" in the ~240 ns2 analyzing scripts :
Code:
$ cd Awk+Perl_ns2-scripts-04.18/
$ grep handoff *.awk
$ grep handoff *.pl
                 .... Nothing ....
Link to Awk+Perl_ns2-scripts, and overview.txt
https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...7T?usp=sharing

Note : You can write a script yourself, and use it in APP-Tool.
