Hi, Which traffic simulator what you recommend to use with ns-2 if the goal is to produce provably representative HTTP web traffic for a FIXED number of clients? Firstly I have noticed that ns2 contains HttpApps which include servers and users. However, one would have to specify parameters, e.g. for RNGs. Secondly, I read a lot about the PackMime model; the only problem is that the number of users changes dynamically throughout the simulation.
My second - beginner - question is about changing the receiving agent of a TCP sender dynamically from the application level. I do not want to take too much of your time; therefore I would be pleased if one of you could tell me that it is indeed possible to invoke detach and connect methods from within an Application object, e.g. depending on some timer or something (the goal is to send data do more than one destination node/agent).
