<analytics uacct="UA-1580095-2" ></analytics> ANSWER (Automated NS-2 Workflow managER) is a software automation tool for the Network Simulator (ns-2) based on ns2measure, explicitly designed for facilitating large-scale simulation experiments. It is composed of two scripts:

  • Launcher is responsible for providing a correct input for the ns-2 simulator based on a XML input file.
  • Drawer is a graphical php web interface that can be used to aggregate and analyze the results produced by ns-2. The instructions to install this package can be found at Drawer readme

In order to describe and specify a campaign simulation with its settings and parameters, we have developed a personalized XML simulation description language. An example of it can be found at example.xml.

The paper describing this framework is:
