Abstract

We tackle two important problems that arise in simulation-based studies of various data-related properties in the context of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs): (1) reducing the turnaround time for completing the simulations in a large-scale parameter space; (2) providing database functionalities for a more detailed insight into the simulation's evolution. Towards these goals, we have developed the DiSSIDnet (<u>Di</u>stributed <u>S</ u>ystem for <u>S</u>imulation and <u>I</u>ntegrated <u>D</u>evelopment for Wireless Sensor <u>Net</u>works). Leveraging upon our earlier works on the SIDnet-SWANS tool [3], DiSSIDnet not only provides the ability of a synchronized execution of the simulations in a distributed environment, but also maintains the simulation data over the parameter-space in a relational database. In addition to post-simulation queries that can be posed to the database, we also provide the feature of specifying triggers that can generate notifications upon detecting certain events of interest during the simulation process.
