[ndnSIM] comparison between NDN and IP

Hi Chavoosh,

It is a very good question and I don't have a definite answer to it.  Both delay and throughput metrics is something that depends on the behavior of the sender in IP and requester in NDN.  That is, the major  factor for the delay could be how fast sender/requester retransmits/re-requests.  Similar could be for the throughput: depending on how aggressively sender sends/receiver express Interests, the throughput could be different.

One potential (though not ideal) is to compare a bulk data transfer using IP/TCP versus some implementation of reliable data deliver in NDN.  For the latter it is possible to use ConsumerWindow, but it implements very simple logic and it may not be too fair to compare it with TCP.
