When you are creating the network, in the attribute section you can define restrictions. Of such restrictions are Avoid High,Medium, Low and Prefer High, Medium, Low can someone mathematically explain what happens here and if it can be altered? I couldn't find info elsewhere.


1 Answer 1


The cost is multiplied by the following values:

  • Avoid: High: 5
  • Avoid: Medium: 2
  • Avoid: Low: 1.3

Instead of these three preset values, you may type in a numeric value if you wish.
