This paper presents a traffic engineering framework able to optimize OSPF weight setting administrative procedures. Using the proposed framework, enhanced
configurations are now provided to network administrators in order to effectively improve the QoS performance of the corresponding network domain. The envisaged NP-hard optimization problem is faced resorting to Evolutionary Algorithms, which allocate OSPF weights guided by a bi-objective function. The results presented in this work show that the proposed optimization tool clearly outperforms common weight setting heuristics.
