Controls the methods used by the concurrent continuous solver
 Type: int
 Default value: -1
 Minimum value: -1
 Maximum value: 3

This parameter is only evaluated when solving an LP with a concurrent solver (Method = 3 or 4). It controls which methods are run concurrently by the concurrent solver. Options are:

  • -1=automatic,
  • 0=barrier, dual, primal simplex,
  • 1=barrier and dual simplex,
  • 2=barrier and primal simplex, and
  • 3=dual and primal simplex.
Which methods are actually run also depends on the number of threads available.

For examples of how to query or modify parameter values from our different APIs, refer to our Parameter Examples.
