Input and output formats for SNDlib

On this page, you find the necessary formats for specifying network planning instances and their solutions.

Each SNDlib instance consists of two input files:

  1. A network file describing the network (nodes, links, demands, and admissible paths), and
  2. a network model file describing the capacity and routing model, whether links are directed or undirected, etc.
Furthermore, there is a solution format for specifying feasible solutions. For all three file types, two possible formats are provided: a native ASCII format and an XML format. You can choose either of them.
