The LDPN algorithm is validated through simulation.
In the following metrics are used to measure the performance of the LDPN algorithm in terms of recovery overhead.
In LDPN, strives to restore the connectivity while minimizing the node recovery overhead and also maintaining the path lengths at their pre-failure value.
4 clearly indicates that LDPN outperforms RIM by moving lesser nodes during the recovery process, particularly for dense network.
Therefore, the data path length validation metrics would assess how the communication paths are affected by contemporary schemes and LDPN contribution to sustaining the pre-failure data path lengths.
