The purpose of this experimental study is to measure the ability of the routing protocol to react to the network topology change while continuing to successfully deliver data packets to their destinations. To measure this ability, different scenarios are generated by varying the maximum speed in the network that also over different terrain areas. The main focus of this paper is to discuss and evaluate the performance of different parameters in different scenarios and different terrain areas which may be small, large and very large in wireless sensor network using Dynamic Source routing protocols and for monitoring of critical conditions with the help of important parameters like Packet Delivery Fraction, End-to-End Delay, Average Throughput, NRL and Packet loss% in different scenarios [1]. This paper describes the performance matrices on different topologies based on varying the maximum speed and keeping the constant pause time in different terrain areas which is small, large and very large. Simulations are run by considering DSR routing protocol. In order to get realistic performance, the results are averaged for a number of scenarios. Investigators were not attempting to measure the protocol performance on a particular workload taken from real life, but rather to measure the protocol, performance under different range of conditions [1]. Investigators use network simulator ns-2 to simulate wireless networks with various wireless routing protocols. NS-2 is a packet- level, discrete event simulator, widely adopted in the network research community.
