The MANET packet routing method of geographic greedy forwarding involves the selection of distance reducing intermediate relays towards a destination. The efficacy of the greedy methods differs and varies; nevertheless, the algorithms are similar and process the same data at a forwarding node. Their commonalities potentially allow the online assignment of different methods for more efficient progress forwarding in heterogeneous MANET environments. We define a multimethod multi-greedypacket forwarding approach in this paper. Using the IPFIX packet flow measures, we demonstrate the multi-greedy scheme for the performance of repetitive packet routing tasks that permit exploration-exploitation application. The flows report reveal the optimal efficiency of each base greedy method in each flow which aggregates to the multi-greedy design. In comparison to the base methods, the case multi-greedy methods show considerable performance improvement in PDR, hop-count, and delay measures.
