2 Create NeSSi Project
First of all you need to create one (or more) NeSSi2 project(s). The following picture
depicts how this is done in detail.
Start
Select “File”
”New” ”Other”
from the menu
Select “NeSSi
Project” lying
under “NeSSi2”
Enter the name for
the project and
confirm with “OK”
End

3 Open NeSSi2 Explorer
You may open the NeSSi2 Explorer view in several ways. You may either open it directly
via the Show View dialog or switch to one of the appropriate perspectives. The following
diagram depicts this a little bit clearer.
Choose “Network
Editor”
Choose “Window”
“Open
Perspective” ”Other”
Choose “Network
Editor”
Start
End
Choose “Window”
“Show
View” ”Other”
Choose “NeSSi
Explorer” under
“NeSSi2”

4 Create a Simple Network
After setting up a project for all the NeSSi2 stuff, you should create a network.
Open NeSSi
Explorer
Start
Right click
“Network”
Choose “Select” of
the palette and
double click the
Access Network’s
icon to open it
Is the NeSSi
Explorer visible?
Select “New”
”New Network
File”
Place routers,
servers and clients
in the same way
Create NeSSi
Project
Click into NeSSi
Explorer to set
focus
Enter a name for
the network and
confirm with “Next”
and “Finish”
Select “New
Connection and
connect a device with
the router by clicking
on both of them
Does a NeSSi
Project exist?
Select “New
Access Network”
from the palette of
the opening view
Select “File” ”Save
from the menu or
press CTRL+S to save
the changes
Expand project
node and right
click on
“Networks”
Place an Access
Network into the
blank area of the
same view
End

5 Create Profile
Profiles contain a bunch of applications that may be deployed together in this way. How
a profile is created is shown in the following picture.
Open NeSSi
Explorer
Start
Click on “Create”
Confirm with “OK”
and “Finish”
Is the NeSSi
Explorer visible?
Enter a name for
the profile
Expand the project
node
Right click on
“Profiles”
Select the
appropriate
Applications from
the list and
confirm with “OK”
After clicking on
“Next” select
“Create Profile”
Select “Edit
Profiles”
Enter a name and
select the
Applications to
assign
End

6 Create Scenario
A scenario describes the configuration of a network. Several of them may be bundled
within a session. The scenario cannot be simulated directly. You need to create a session
containing the scenario first. The following picture describes the creation process of a
scenario.
Open NeSSi
Explorer
Start
Right click
“Scenarios” and
select “Create new
Scenario”
Confirm with “Finish”
Create Profile
Expand the project
node and its
“Profiles”
Is the NeSSi
Explorer visible?
Enter a name for
the scenario and
confirm with “OK”
Right click on the
scenario lying
under “Scenario”
Are there any profiles?
Select “Distribute
Profiles”
Expand
“Networks” and
the specific
network itself
Select the
appropriate profiles
on the left side and
click on the arrow
button to assign
them
End

7 Create Session
In a session, several scenarios are bundled. The number of ticks to simulate and the
number of simulations are configured within a session. How to create a session is depicted in the following picture.
Open NeSSi
Explorer
Start
Right click
“Sessions” and
select “Create new
Session”
Edit the column
“Ticks” to match the
number of ticks the
simulation should
last
Create
Scenario
Expand the nodes
to the “Scenarios”
of the specific
network
Is the NeSSi
Explorer visible?
Enter a name for
the session and
confirm with “OK”
Edit the column
“Runs” to match
the number of
simulations
running with the
selected scenario
Are there any scenarios?
Right click on the
session lying
under “Sessions”
Select a recorder
configuration by
clicking on “...”
Select “Configure
Sessions”
Expand
“Networks” and
the specific
network itself
Select the
appropriate
scenarios on the left
side and click on the
arrow button to add
them
End

8 Run Simulation
To run the simulation of a configured session, you need to select Launch Session from
the context menu of the session node within the NeSSi2 Explorer.
Start
Expand
- project node,
- Networks node
- node of the specific network
- Sessions node
Right click on the
session and select
“Launch Session”
