Important Network Simulator Parameters

Quality of Service

It defines the quality in which the data is transmitted from the sender to the receiver. It also includes the success in packet delivery and quality of the packets.

Packet Delivery Ratio

It is in short as PDR that defines the total number of packets that are successfully transmitted from a node.

End-to-End Delay

This metric denotes the time delay that occur in the path while the data is transmitted between source to destination.

Throughput

This parameter defines the successful packet transmission in accordance to the time.

Latency

It is the measure of time that is taken by a bit of packet to travel towards its next hop neighbour node.

Velocity of the node


This metric is defined only for a dynamic network in which the nodes move at different speeds in the network.

Jitter

This parameter is the measure of the existence of latency in the transmission of the packet.

Energy Utilization

The amount of energy that are utilized by the nodes in the networks is measured with respect to the initial energy.

Overhead in routing

This parameter is estimated while the routing protocol is used. This defines the enormous flow of packets at limited bandwidth is called routing overhead.

Percentage of packet loss

This metric determines the number of packets that are lost on each transmission of the pairs of source and destination.

Routing hop count

This parameter defines the number of hops that are present in the selected routing path. The lesser the hop counts gives shortest route.

Received signal strength

This metric enables to compute the amount of power that is present in the signals during transmission.

Network Congestion

The parameter congestion denotes the clashing of signals between two or more devices in the network.

Network Efficiency

The efficiency deals with the correctness in the exchange of the data in the whole network. As a total measure this network efficiency is evaluated.

Lifetime of Network

The network lifetime depends on the amount of energy consumed by all the nodes in the network.

Number of alive nodes

This metric is computed in number as per the nodes that are active at the end of simulation after a particular time period.

Network Resiliency

This metric determines the ability of the network that depends on the capability of the scalable and reliable aspects of the network.

Time for encryption and decryption

It defines the time taken for the cryptography algorithm to convert the plain text into cipher text and vice versa.

Detection accuracy

This parameter gives the exactness in the identification of the attackers participating in the network.

Travelling path length

The path of moving network nodes is measure in meters or kilometres to identify their ability in travelling.

Load balance factor

This is a factor that defines the amount of packets that are buffered in the particular network device that may overflow.

Security level

The level of security is measured in terms of bits where the strongest cipher text is determined.

Number of Handover

The handover metric defines the number of times a particular devices moves from one connectivity to another.

Signal to Noise ratio

The SNR gives the amount of noise and signals that exists in a particular channel between two nodes.

Migration time

This determines the time taken for the migration of packets from one network entity to another.

Cluster head lifetime

This metric denotes the amount of time the selected cluster head sustains as a head for that cluster.

Redundancy Check

This parameter gives the amount of redundant data packet that is present in the collected packets.

Percentage of Packet drop

This metric defines the number of packets that are dropped in the link during data transmission.

Response time

The time taken for the node to receive a response for the given request defines the response time.

Satisfaction rate

This metric defines the satisfaction of the given request by the node for a particular content.

Resource utilization

This parameter defines the amount of resources used in the network by the nodes for their transmission.

Scalability

The scalability measure the ability of the network at increasing number of nodes in the network.

Bandwidth consumption

This metric defines the amount of bandwidth that is consumed by the nodes to perform their transmission.

Data rate

Data rate denotes the use of communication technology that gives faster speed in data transmission.

Node degree

The node degree defines the number of nodes that are connected to a particular node. In simple this means connectivity.

Number of clusters

This parameter defines the number of clusters that are created in the network. The performance at larger and smaller number of clusters is analysed.

Queue time

This metric is a measure of time that determined from the time at which the packets stay in a buffer of the node.
