NAM is a Tcl/TK based animation tool for viewing network simulation
traces and real world packet traces. It supports topology layout,
packet level animation, and various data inspection tools. NAM began
at LBL. It has evolved substantially over the past few years. The NAM
development effort was an ongoing collaboration with the VINT project.
Currently, it is being developed at ISI as part of the SAMAN and Conser
