• NS2: the simulator itself, now version: ns-2.26 We will work with the part mostly.

 • NAM: Network animator. Visualized trace tool(not really). Nam editor: GUI interface to generate ns scripts Just for presentation now, not useful for research tracing.

 • Pre-processing: Traffic and topology generators

 • Post-processing: Simple trace analysis, often in Awk, Perl(mostly), or Tcl
