Network Deployment

Topology Control

Since multiple routers may run in a single LAN, connectivity needs to be enforced and packets destined to non-neighbor nodes be dropped. This is enabled in the MobilityFirst router pipeline by way of topology enforcement element that takes a GUID-based connectivity graph passed as a topology file at start up time. Consider below a simple topology with three MobilityFirst routers and two end hosts:

         Sender ---- MFR1 ---- MFR2 ---- MFR3 ---- Receiver
           100         1         2         3          101

MFR - MobilityFirst Router, and Sender/Receiver are traffic source and sink, respectively

The following contained in the topology file defines the 5-node topology shown above:

#syntax: <node-GUID> <neighbor-count> <neighbor-GUID1> [<neighbor-GUID2>] ...
100 1 1
1 2 2 100
2 2 1 3
3 2 2 101
101 1 3

Logging Configuration

The environment variable MF_CLICK_LOG_LEVEL can be set to an integer value between 0 and 7 corresponding to enable one of the following log levels for the Click-based MF router:

Value Log Level Description
3 TIME Same as INFO with the addition of a micro-second precision timestamp to the beginning of the log message
6 CRITICAL Out of memory, approaching resource limits, etc.
7 FATAL Unable to proceed, for example when integrity is compromised
