Array of identifiers of starting vertices.  
end_vid  BIGINT 
Identifier of the ending vertex of the path.  
end_vids  ARRAY[BIGINT]

directed  BOOLEAN 
true 

Column  Type  Default  Description 

id  ANYINTEGER 
Identifier of the edge.  
source  ANYINTEGER 
Identifier of the first end point vertex of the edge.  
target  ANYINTEGER 
Identifier of the second end point vertex of the edge.  
cost  ANYNUMERICAL
