Measuring Residence Time¶
In this example we explore the packet residence time statistics of network nodes.
The packet residence time is measured from the moment a packet enters a network node up to the moment the same packet leaves the network node. This statistic is also collected for packets which are created and/or destroyed in network nodes.
Here is the network:
Here is the configuration:
[General] network = ResidenceTimeMeasurementShowcase description = "Measure packet residence time in all network nodes" sim-time-limit = 1s # source application ~96Mbps throughput *.source.numApps = 1 *.source.app.typename = "UdpSourceApp" *.source.app.source.packetLength = 1200B *.source.app.source.productionInterval = exponential(100us) *.source.app.io.destAddress = "destination" *.source.app.io.destPort = 1000 # destination application *.destination.numApps = 1 *.destination.app.typename = "UdpSinkApp" *.destination.app.io.localPort = 1000 # enable packet residence time measurer in all network nodes *.*.measurer.typename = "ResidenceTimeMeasurer"
