With the novel developments in Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technologies, understanding node patterns have become critical for enabling security since the vulnerable structure of WSN nodes is a drawback of the technological developments in the area. Understanding node activity patterns helps to detect abnormal node behaviors and prevent malicious nodes. In this study, we observe diverse node activity patterns in terms of packet reception, packet transmission, and energy utilization. We also observe the network delay pattern between the source and sink according to various network sizes.
