A multiple-objectives evolutionary perspective to interdomain traffic engineering in the Internet

Steve Uhlig

We present an application of multiple-objectives evolutionary optimization to the problem of engineering the distribution of the interdomain traffic in the Internet. We show that this practical problem requires such a heuristic due to the potential conflicting nature of the traffic engineering objectives. Furthermore, having to work on the parameter's space of the real problem makes such techniques as evolutionary optimization very easy to use. We show the successful application of our algorithm to two important problems in interdomain traffic engineering.
