Hello Marco,

onIncomingInterest refers to the NFD pipeline for an incoming Interest and onDataUnsolicited is the pipeline for unsolicited data. In general the majority of methods in this file refers to the pipelines of NFD. You can take a look here:


However, there could be some minor changes in the documentation of the current NFD version and the version of NFD in ndnSIM, which do not affect your general understanding of what is done by each of these method.
