We present a fast multiscale approach for the network minimum logarithmic arrangement problem. This type of arrangement plays an important role in a network compression and fast node/link access operations. The algorithm is of linear complexity and exhibits good scalability which makes it practical and attractive for using on large-scale instances. Its effectiveness is demonstrated on a large set of real-life networks. These networks with corresponding best-known minimization results are suggested as an open benchmark for a research community to evaluate new methods for this problem.
