Generally speaking, it is not fully understood why and how metaheuristic algorithms work very well under what conditions. It is the intention of this paper to clarify the performance characteristics of some of popular algorithms depending on the fitness landscape of specific problems. This study shows the performance of each considered algorithm on the fitness landscapes with different problem characteristics. The conclusions made in this study can be served as guidance on selecting algorithms to the problem of interest.
