The sources to the diversity-aware variant of babeld, babelz, are now
available by doing
darcs get http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/repos/babelz/
Please not that this is experimental software, and not ready for use in
production. Please note further that this is quite finished yet, as
diversity type 3 is not implemented.
Compiling babelz yields a babeld executable, which, by default, runs
just like the stock babeld. In order to enable diversity routing, run
babeld -z 2 wlan0 eth0 ...
where the value following -z is the kind of diversity -- 0 for none,
1 for per-interface diversity with no memory, 2 for per-channel
diversity with no memory, and 3 for per-channel diversity with infinite
memory (not implemented yet). (I'll explain all of these in a future
mail, for now just stick to 2.)
The -z option can also be followed by a second value, which is the
fraction, in percent, of the cost that is attributed to a diverse link.
babeld -z 2,30 wlan0 eth0
The default is 50, meaning that a diverse link costs as much as half
a non-diverse link. A value of 100 means that diverse links are just as
expensive as non-diverse links, a value of 1 means that diverse links
are almost free.
Folks, once again,
THIS IS EXPERIMENTAL SOFTWARE, LIKELY TO CHANGE IN THE FUTURE.
IT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PRODUCTION USE.
