Cisco Secure Workload Networks of Computing Hosts

Donated on 5/16/2022

This dataset contains 22 disjoint graphs where the edges are collected over several consecutive hours, across different days, reflecting communications (TCP and UDP) of various distributed applications in different enterprises, useful for developing graph algorithms, data mining and discovery of function and structure, unsupervised and possibly supervised machine learning (including graph clustering and community discovery). Ground truth grouping information is provided for two of the graphs (grouping of the nodes, based on function or role of the host). Please see the README file.
