Hi Andriana,

The project that you're referring provides only partial information that can be used in simulation scenarios.  In particular, there were no delays and link bandwidths.  What we basically did is defined a basic heuristic to classify nodes into different classes (clients, gateways, and backbones---these what colors represent) and randomly assigned delays and bandwidths based on the classification.

Again, all these processing has no relation to the original Rocketfuel project, but provides some topology that can be used in the simulation, that has certain real-world characteristics (though not exact).  Depending on the simulation scenario you're working on, you may need to change heuristic or try to use some other topology...

For the definition of the heuristic, check the https://github.com/cawka/ndnSIM-sample-topologies/blob/master/scenarios/rocketfuel-maps-cch-to-annotaded.cc  source.
