Chapter 5. Learning from Your Simulations

The main reason to simulate a network is to try and gain some insight into exactly what a network design will yield without having to first create that simulation in the real world. Creating and running your simulation isn't enough to achieve this; you must also gather data from your simulations and create meaningful visualizations. These visualizations may show a breaking point in your design, a particular pattern, inefficiency, or anything else that suggests bad designing.

Gathering useful information

Gathering data from your network simulation is not a difficult task to do using OMNeT++. OMNeT++ is able to gather vector and scalar data and also create realistic packet capture files. To enable your simulation ...
