Recently, the advances in portable computing and wireless technologies are opening up exciting possibilities for the future of wireless mobile networking. This rapid penetration has stimulated a change in the expectations of wireless users. Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) have evolved a great deal over the past two decades and considered as one of the most important and essential technologies to support future pervasive computing scenarios. MANETs have gained significant interest and popularity since they have enormous potential in several fields of applications. Absence of infrastructure, self-configuring and mobility are the main reasons behind this popularity. The contribution of this research is its brief description of the different evaluation schemes that are used for MANETs and other networks. Previous efforts have not surveyed these evaluation methods. Hence, this paper is very useful to research community to choose the suitable evaluation method for their research.
