The NetSimulyzer is an offline playback tool for ns-3 that is designed to aid in understanding ns-3 scenarios at any size and using any communication technology. It not only renders the scenario's topology in 3D, but it also provides configurable charts and logging mechanisms to allow for debugging and demonstrating details that may not be evident from the topology, such as throughput or application state.
This module is the ns-3 component of the NetSimulyzer. It allows for the configuration of what is displayed for the network topology and provides the connections for charting and logging mechanisms. It generates a single output file, which is loaded into the NetSimulyzer application found here. For a quick tour of the features provided, see the Feature Overview in the README on GitHub. For more in-depth coverage of features, see the documentation provided with the most recent release.
For actually integrating the NetSimulyzer with an ns-3 scenario, see the 'Quickstart' chapter of the documentation provided with the release, or directly on GitHub, as well as the Installation section of the README. Further details about each component may be found in their corresponding sections in the documentation.
This module and the NetSimulyzer application were designed by Evan Black of the Wireless Networks Division of NIST.
