Mannasim : A very brief evaluation

This morning, I together with my friend just have a look at the annasim framework. This is my brief evaluation after less than 30 minutes of using it :
  1. The installation is quite easy, for those who have experience installing NS2 patch file .. it shouldn't be a big problem. The guide given in the mannasim website (given in my previous entry) are also straight forward.
  2. It comes with a GUI to generate TCL script. Easy configuration. User can edit the tcl script if the topology / scenarios are not covered by the GUI. Of course some knowledge on creating NS2 simulation script are needed.
  3. The script can be evaluated by typing ns .tcl. Everyone using NS2 should already know this.
  4. I believe that there are some tools available in internet for trace file analysis.
Overall , I thinks it is a good start to use the Mannasim. What is your opinion? please feel free to share.

Hi!
Did u actually install NS2 and Mannasim on Windows Vista yet?

I'm working on similar stuff & I'm having problems installing NS2 on my Windows Vista Business Edition.

hi arthi ^_^ , welcome to this blog.. actually I'm not using windows for NS2 simulation. Here we use linux xandrOS or Ubuntu for NS2. I'm very sorry.

Hi..
I am a newbie in NS2 and Linux. I'm using Debian linux on my pc server.How can i simulate a WSN network using mannasim in NS2?

hi lynndams,

after installation of ns2.29, patch it with mannasim.

The knowledge in creating ns2 simulations script is necessary. Please refer to tutorials available in the net. I do write an entry regarding ns2 in NS2 category section in this blog.

regards,

hi you can get the example from mannasim download page. There are two examples. For further example you can generate the script using Script Generation Tools

hi

I have patched mannasim with ns-2. I also have a similar thought as to whether mannasim is somewhat significant with regard to sensor networks or ns-2 alone is enough to accomplish research goals in sensor networks. I haven't tweaked into mannasim yet. I would like to know if the results obtained from ns-2 mannasim and ns-2 vary to a possible extent or not

hi.. same dilema with you, but I think straight away from documentation we can see that, the mannasim adds more component including battery module which I think not covered by NS2 alone. Selecting the right simulation tool depends on the research goal.
