Implement Object::Start/Stop() functionality
Last modified: 2014-05-22 09:58:09 EDT
This is to keep track of the efforts to implement a node's status about the PowerUp / PowerDown of a node.
The target is to be able to activate/deactivate a node during a simulation, possibly resetting its state upon battery recharge.
The discussion can be found in the Ns-developers mailing list (topic: "Energy model: stopping a node", June 2011) and in Nov. 2010 meeting's notes: http://www.nsnam.org/docs/meetings/november10.txt
I'm interested in implementing this, as I would like to model failures and repairs with ns-3. However, it seems that Resilinets already made some progress with it  and I wouldn't want to duplicate the work.
Does anyone know if this code will be released and included in ns-3?

Great news Vedran, we can team up in order to speedup.
About the paper you linked, no idea, maybe we could contact directly the authors and ask them if they're keen releasing their patches (unless they did their work more as an hack).
Anyway, it's worth contacting them also to ask if they have specific ideas / requirements.

Please see Bug1522, if we solve this issue with some randomness we could back out the changes for Bug1522.
