In order to keep services running despite link or node failure in MPLS networks, RSVP-TE fast reroute (FRR) schemes use precomputed backup label-switched path tunnels for local repair of LSP tunnels. In the event of failure, the redirection of traffic occurs onto backup LSP tunnels that have the same quality of service constraints than original paths. In this paper, we study the algorithmic aspects of computing original and back-up paths under quality of service constraints. We give an algorithm in O(nm+n2log(n)) that computes shortest guaranteed paths with their backup towards a single destination. In the case of directed graphs, we show that this algorithm is optimal by proving that computing shortest guaranteed paths is as hard as to compute multiple source shortest paths in directed graphs. In the case of undirected graphs, we propose a faster algorithm with time complexity O(mlog(n) + n2).
