[OLSR-users] topology visualization
Thu Dec 16 13:23:06 CET 2004
the new olsr version supports connections from external hosts (not localhost)
to the "topology port" when the olsrd_dot_draw plugin is loaded and
for example to allow connections from 192.168.0.5 you can write in olsrd.conf:
#PlParam "port" "2005"
PlParam "accept" "192.168.0.5"
i have hacked together a little perl script which connects to this port and
displays this information. it uses the graphviz and imagemagick pacakges for
generating and viewing the images, and really is quite a hack. but its very
interresting and helpful to actually see the network topology graphically, i
it's called olsr-topology-view.pl and you can get it from:
