[ndnSIM] Question on ndn interest flooding simulation

Hi Dawei,

I made some optimizations to speed up simulation process. That is, instead of sending at some extremely high rate (which would slow down the process), the "evil" guys send exactly as much as needed to launch ddos (if they send more, the excess will be immediately dropped by their local forwarder).

For details, check out DdosApp implementation https://github.com/cawka/ndnSIM-ddos-interest-flooding/blob/master/extensions/ddos-app.cc#L113
