To get statistics for an entire simulation you must parse a srm trace file
using, for example, awk or perl. You can find documentation of srm trace
file format in ns manual. Notice that srm log is DIFFERENT from ns/nam
trace and you must use srm agent's 'log' instproc to enable it. See srm
A key-value pair is simply a tuple <key, value>. I believe in srm log it's
simply two fields in a string separated by whites (i.e., spaces or tabs).

Processing time? ns does not model the time of data processing due to
cpu/disk/etc. If you want that you should hack srm agent.
