Simulation Results and Trace Files

The folder contains Q & A related to output metrics, packet and event trace files

Where can I find packet trace and event trace csv files after simulation ?
After the simulation, you can get the packet trace and event trace files(if enabled), by saving the simulation to your prefered location. Both packet trace ...

How do I provide my own label to a packet that can be seen in the packet trace?
The szPacketType field which is part of NetSim packet structure,  can be updated to provide a custom description to the packet. Eg: strcpy(pstruPacket->...
