org.cloudsimplus.heuristics

Provides a set of interfaces and classes to develop heuristics to find sub-optimal solutions for problems, considering some utility function that has to be minimized or maximized. Such a function is also called a fitness function and as higher is the fitness better the found solution is.

Different heuristics include Simulated Annealing, Tabu Search and Ant Colony Optimization.

The first introduced heuristic is the org.cloudsimplus.heuristics.CloudletToVmMappingSimulatedAnnealing that is used by a org.cloudbus.cloudsim.brokers.DatacenterBrokerHeuristic to map Cloudlets to VMs.
