What ?

Simple tool, based on mininet, to boot a simple network with n paths and run experiments between two hosts.

Usage

./mpPerf -t topo -x xp

The format for the topo file and xp file is simple but could be different based on the type of topo or experiments. Details should follow.

basic Example

1. Get the CLI

./mpPerf -t conf/topo/simple_para

The content of simple_para is:

desc:Simple configuration with two para link
topoType:MultiIf
leftSubnet:10.0.
rightSubnet:10.1.
#path_x:delay,queueSize(may be calc),bw
path_0:10,10,5
path_1:40,40,5
path_2:30,30,2
path_3:20,20,1

topoType just specifies that we want to have multiple interfaces, one for each path.

Each path is defined by 3 values, delay (one way, int, in ms), queue_size (int, in packets), and bandwidth (float, in mbit/s).

Once the configuration is up, you have access to the CLI. You can check route configuration (policy routing etc.) Just by issuing regular commands preceded by Client or Server

2. Simple experiment

./mpPerf -t conf/topo/simple_para -x conf/xp/4_nc

This command will start the same topology and run the experiment defined by 4_nc The result for this experiment is a simple pcap file.

They are other options and experiments, but the documentation is still to be written.
