First of all, as I stated to my previous email, you are encouraged to use ndnSIM 2.0, as this is the version that is undergoing continuous development and support.

I am not sure that I fully understand your approach. However, it seems to me that probably you do not need to modify anything internal of the simulator, but just code a proper simulation scenario.

Probably you will need a way to access the entries of the Content Store. 

ndnSIM 2.0 offers two different CS structures to the user. The user can choose one of them.

If you are planning to use the NFD’ CS you can take a look at the documentation here:


If you are planning to use the old ndnSIM 1.0 CS then you may take a look here:

Some selections of nodes will be programmed to broadcast certain amount of the contents stored in their cache storage to the nearest neighbors. I have already tried to study how different files (or parts) of the simulators (version 1.0) interact with each other, and I have tried to execute many of the provided examples in the tutorials as well. However, I have difficulties understanding how to get started on the actual implementations. I am not sure which parts I need to make changes to implement this idea. Is there any resource or tutorials already provided to help me get started on this? I have read through a lot of old archived emails, but I still cannot find the answers I am looking for.
