One of the crucial and utilized simulator for mobile ad hoc network is the NS3 (Network Simulator). NS3 executes simulation scenarios and produces data regarding which flow monitor (flowMon) files are counted one of the important used format for estimating the research proposal. This article will introduce a novel framework to facilitate the simulation process in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). Generally speaking, when network researchers need to evaluate the experiments, there is generally the necessity to estimate the different models advantages by computing a set of QoS metrics to understand the network performance impact in such scenario. Network simulators, and NS3 specifically, need important program writing from the researcher to consolidate simulation results. This article states a contribution for NS3 composed of a new Framework that tends to make it less complicated to obtain and plot various QoS network performance metrics. This framework generates and runs simulations using common simulation parameters, such as velocity, mobility models, and number of nodes automatically. It also contains permits to parse through the generated flow that contain several essential metrics a researcher may need in order to analyze the simulation, such as end-to-end delay, lost packet, and throughput.
