TUTORIAL

FOR COE444

(Hakim ADICHE)


Introduction

INTRODUCTION

  • OPNET provides a comprehensive development environment supporting the modeling of communication networks and distributed systems.

  • OPNET Modeler provide also a graphical interface easy to use to help the user to build its models.

What is opnet simulator

What is OPNET Simulator?

  • Opnet is a network simulation tool. It allows the definition of:

    • A network topology,

    • the nodes, and

    • the links that go towards making up a network.

  • User defined:

    • The processes that may happen in a particular node, and

    • the properties of the transmission links.

  • A simulation can then be executed, and the results analyzed for any network element in the simulated network.

More about opnet

MORE ABOUT OPNET

  • Opnet has three main types of tools:

    • The Model Development tool

    • The Simulation Execution tool

    • The Results Analysis tool

  • These three types of tools are used together to model, simulate and analyze a network.

Model development tool

MODEL DEVELOPMENT TOOL

  • Network Editor is used to design the network models, with different nodes connected by point-to-point links, radio links, etc.

  • Node Editor is used to place the models of the nodes used into the network. A node in Opnet consists of modules.

  • Process Editor is used to define the processes that run inside these modules. Process models are represented by finite state machine (FSMs).

  • Parameter Editor allows the definition of parameters used in the node modules and process models, such as the packet format, probability density functions, etc.

Simulation execution tool

SIMULATION EXECUTION TOOL

  • Probe Editor is used to place probes at various points of interest in the network model. These probes can be used to monitor any of the statistics computed during simulation.

  • Simulation Tool allows the user to specify a sequence of simulations, along with any input and output options, and any different runtime options.

Results analysis tool

RESULTS ANALYSIS TOOL

  • Analysis Tool will display the results from a simulation or series of simulations as graphs.

  • Filter Editor is used to define filters to mathematically process, reduce, or combine statistical data.

Invoking opnet from your ccse unix account

Invoking OPNET from your CCSE UNIX account

  • Login to your UNIX account

  • Use an editor to open the file .cshrc

  • Add the following entries:

    • setenv vudoc_prog /usr/local/bin/X11/acroread

    • set path=($path /tools/opnet/8.0.C/sys/unix/bin)

    • setenv LD_LIBRARYPATH /usr/openwin/lib:/tools/opnet/8.0.C/sys/sun_sparc_solaris/lib

  • Save the file and exit from your account

  • Log on to your UNIX account and at a command prompt, type Opnet. Opnet will start running.
