Dear Spyridon,

Thanks a lot for your comprehensive answer. I see your point. You mean I
should assume NLSR as a real application and try to port it to ndnSIM,
which seems reasonable. Anyway, it would be much more helpful if I could
find a source code which has been already done this. Do you happen to know
there is such source code available?


Dear Alex,

     It is a good news to me and I am impatiently looking forward to
hearing from *Anil* about porting NLSR to ndnSIM. Actually, I need to know
when he can release such version of NLSR.


Dear Junxiao,

     You hit the nail on the head! Actually, by “performance” I mean
convergence time, message overhead, update dissemination time, and quality
of multipath routing support of NLSR, which can be resolved through
simulating it. As a matter of fact, I want to evaluate NLSR’s performance
with more than 200 nodes, and I cannot access to this number of PCs, so I
decided to use ndnSIM. But if you have a better opinion I will be so glad
to hear it.


Dear Lan,

I hope he can finish it ASAP and release the first version of ported NLSR
to ndnSIM. As I mentioned, I need to evaluate NLSR’s performance with about
200 nodes, but your suggestion seems to be really helpful (i.e. using
Mini-NDN) as Mini-NDN does not require porting NLSR, although it is limited
to 100 nodes. Thanks for your helpful suggestion.


 Again, I do appreciate your kind help and exact explanation and I am
looking forward to hearing from all of you.

Best regards
