Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs) is a wireless network which does not require any infrastructure and base station for communication. A routing protocol with less energy consumption is one of the main requirements of MANET because of limited bandwidth and battery power of each node. In this paper we have proposed a new algorithm called ECG_AODV (Energy Constraint Gossip based) routing protocol and analyzes its behavior under stochastic traffic. In one of our earlier communication we have analyzed the performance of this new protocol CBR traffic. In the present paper we want to analyze its behavior under stochastic traffic (Pareto traffic) and compare the same with CBR traffic. The protocol works on current energy status of each node and Gossip technique. The simulation result of new protocol is compared with AODV protocol and it is obtained using network simulator NS-2 (Version 2.33). The performance parameters are energy consumption, routing overhead and delivery ratio. The simulation result shows that energy consumption and overhead is reduced up to 30%-40% with CBR traffic and 10%-25% with Pareto traffic without affecting the delivery ratio.
