If you don't want a GUI and the fancy what if scenarios, it is not difficult
to write
a Perl/Script that does constraint-based routing or Multi-commodity flow

I would guess 2-3 weeks if one is familiar with basic linear programming.


Release note: may also require 2-3 weeks to converge when
sub{optimum_backup_paths} is used. This may be due to a suspected
"suboptimality" in PDL::Opt::Simplex...

Application note:
"basic" as the term is used in the context of the phrase "basic linear
programming" seen in the marketing literature should be taken to mean "graph or
subgraph of degree 1"
