Sprint Dates: Fri 29 April 2011 - Sun 1 May 2011

Goals

  • Revisit sprint 1
    • Gather metrics to determine efficiency of protocols.
      • Sizes of routing protocols' packets.
      • Number of packets per second/minute/hour transmitted by each protocol.
      • Average amount of traffic during normal operation.
    • Determine how many nodes can participate in a mesh before responsiveness or bandwidth begin to degrade.

Stuff To Bring

  • anything that can run babel
    • laptops/netbooks
    • desktops with wireless cards
    • openwrt compatible routers (if you're feeling lucky/adventurous)

Homework

  • install babeld on every machine you plan to bring to the sprint
  • [optional] install a kernel with support for batman-adv on the same machines (it's built into the kernel after version 2.6.38+ ) or build the modules separate from the kernel
  • readup on route and ip/ifconfig commands in linux
  • readup on ipv6

Experiments

  • network density
    • hypothesis: if the nodes are positioned very densely, then the network quality will degrade.
    • test: position nodes at increasing densities starting with evenly distributed nodes at their maximum effective range, and run tests to measure network quality at each level of density.

Suggestions

  • Babeld install guide
  • LiveCD guide
