Topology Discovery?
• Goal: To construct the topology of the whole network from the perspective of a single node.
• Reducing the communication overhead of the process.
Topology DiscoveryAlgorithm: 3 stages
• Monitoring node

 Send “topology discover request”

• Divergence of requests

 reaching all active nodes

• Response action

 topology information back to the initiating node

Topology DiscoveryOverview of TopDisc Response
• Direct Response

Node B replies back to node A

Node C replies to node B;

node B forwards the reply to node A

Node D replies to node B;

node B forwards the reply to node A

Node A gets the complete topology !

Topology DiscoveryOverview of TopDisc Response

• Aggregated Response

Node C and D forward request;

node B listens to these and deduces

them to be its children

Node C replies back to node B;

node D replies back to node B

Node B aggregates information from C, D and itself;

node B forwards the reply to node A

Node A gets the complete topology !

Topology DiscoveryOverview of TopDisc Response

• Clustered Response

Assume: node B is a cluster head and nodes C and D are part of its cluster.

Node C and D do not replay

Only node B replies to node A

Node A does not get link C  D

Cluster Response Approaches

1. V = Vi

2.  x  Vi , edge( x, i )  E

graph: G(Vertex, Edge)

Vi be the neighborhood list of node i, with i C

Cluster Response ApproachesRequest Propagation with 3 colors
• White: undiscovered / not receive packet
• Grey: node which is covered at least once black node
Cluster Response ApproachesRequest Propagation with 3 colors

Coloring algorithm

1. Using coloring mechanism to find the required set nodes.

2. Using a forwarding delay inversely proportional to the distance between receiving and sending node.

Cluster Response ApproachesRequest Propagation with 3 colors

a: initial state

a: broadcast request to b & c

b farther to a  wait shorter

c closer to a  wait longer

( forwarding delay )

b: broadcast request to e & c

e closer to b  wait longer

c farther to b  wait shorter

( forwarding delay )

Expand range as soon as possible

( depends on density )

Cluster Response ApproachesRequest Propagation with 4 colors
• White / Black / Grey: same condition as before
• Dark Grey: Discovered node,

 which currently is not covered by any neighboring black node and hence is two hops away from

a black node.

 White node changes to dark grey on receiving

a request from grey.

 Timer to become black node

get req from black  grey

expired w/o req  black

Cluster Response ApproachesRequest Propagation with 4 colors

a: initial state

a: TopDisc request to b

b: TopDisc request to c & e

c farther to b  wait shorter w/ dark.G

e closer to b  wait longer w/ dark.G

( forwarding delay )

( timer starts to become black )

c: TopDisc request to d

Expand range as soon as possible

(depends on density)

Cluster Response ApproachesRequest Propagation with 4 colors

• # of clusters is less than with 3 colors
• clusters are formed with lesser overlap
• solitary black nodes

(time out D.grey nodes with no neighbors)

though number of black nodes is similar to three-color case, the number of bytes transmitted is lower.

Cluster Response ApproachesTopDisc Response Mechanism(TreC)
• Node becomes black

 sets up a timer

 wait for the discovery request from children black nodes

Cluster Response ApproachesTopDisc Response Mechanism(TreC)

2. Forwards aggregates all neighborhood lists

• all neighborhood list from its children/itselt

 when timer for ACK expires, forward aggregated neighborhood list

Cluster Response ApproachesTopDisc Response Mechanism(TreC)

3. All forwarding nodes in between black nodes may also add their adjacency list to the list from black nodes

Cluster Response ApproachesTopDisc Response Mechanism(TreC)

***Timeouts of ACK should be properly set.

Timeouts of children black nodes should always expire before a parent black node.

Tree-Cluster(TreC) for 200 nodes

Cluster Response Approaches Information of each nodes
• Clusters is identified by the black node
• A grey node knows its cluster ID
• Each black node knows the default node

 All nodes have their neighborhood information

Cluster Response ApproachesHandling Channel Errors
• TopDisc request: would not be a problem because of flooding packets (packet Losses  # of black node increase )
• Topology ACK: serious problem because of single path to return back to sink.

( nodes listen neighbors transmit )

 Packet has to be stored at a node till the packet is

reliably transmitted

• Indirect ACK mechanism for reliable transmission.

Cluster Response ApproachesCharacteristics of clusters
• The total surface area and the communication range of nodes bound the maximum number of black nodes formed.
• Number of nodes in each cluster depends on the local density of network
• Depth of tree is bounded
• Routing paths are near optimal for data flow between sour and sink.
Applications of TopDiscRetrieving Network State
• Connectivity Map

Direct / Aggregate response  O.K., Clustered response method  x

• Reachability Map

Connectivity map is asuperset of the Reachable map

• Energy Model

Each (black) nodes can cache energy info for all neighbors.

• Usage Model

Cache receive / transmit rate and send its response

Applications of TopDiscData Dissemination and Aggregation
• Each cluster has a minimal number of nodes.

 active to transfer packets between a parent-child cluster pair

• The area covered propagate up the tree and the monitor covers the whole field
Applications of TopDiscDuty Cycle Assignment

1. Assignment with Location Information

Cluster a (parent)

a (black): TopDisc request to c

c (grey) : TopDisc request to b

b (black): will be child cluster

p (mid-point) of parent/child node

Applications of TopDiscDuty Cycle Assignment
• Cluster a and Cluster b
• p sends a packet

 a determines p is within range of c

 otherwise c can listen to the packet from p.

• Node c forwards it to d

*** since c is in range of p the black node a does not need to forward this packet.

Applications of TopDiscDuty Cycle Assignment
• Cluster a and Cluster b
• a sends packet

 c get packet and forward it to

nodes within its range

• b gets request with couple steps

c: centermediate node between

two black nodes

2. Assignment w/o Location Information

Simulations & ResultsByte Overhead for TopDisc

Byte Overhead ( Direct / Aggregate / TopDisc )

# of nodes Communication range

Only neighborhood list of Black nodes  stay low

Simulations & ResultsAverage path length

Path Length ( Shortest path / TopDisc )

Simulations & Results# of nodes sharing forwarding duty

Number of node sharing forwarding duty

Nearly 50% sharing Nearly 40% sharing

# of black nodes + # of default nodes

Conclusions
• TopDisc selects a set of distinguished node
• TopDIsc constructs a reachability map
• TopDisc logically organizes the network

and forms TreC

• TreC for

-- efficient data dissemination & aggregation

-- duty cycle assignment

-- network state retrieval

• Completely distributed, used only local information and is highly scalable
