[ndnSIM] About link usage

Hi Zhang,

"Usage" is not a parameter you can simply get.  You can only measure / estimate it.  One way to do this is to use ndn::L3Tracer (http://ndnsim.net/2.2/metric.html <http://ndnsim.net/2.2/metric.html>), which gives you an approximate value of usage for Interest, data, and other portions for each face.  For overall usage, you would just need to sum up those.

There are other ways to do this, but all of them include some sort of measurements.

If you just want to visually check, you can use the visualizer module (though it may not be trivial to make it work).
