 int GRBloadclientenv ( GRBenv **envP, const char *logfilename, const char *computeserver, int port, const char *password, int priority, double timeout )

Create a client environment on a compute server. Optimization models live within an environment, so this is typically the first Gurobi routine called in an application. This call specifies the compute server on which those optimization models will be solved, as well as the priority of the associated jobs.

In addition to creating a new environment, this routine will also check the current working directory for a file named gurobi.env, and it will attempt to read parameter settings from this file if it exists. The file should be in PRM format (briefly, each line should contain a parameter name, followed by the desired value for that parameter).

In general, you should aim to create a single Gurobi environment in your program, even if you plan to work with multiple models. Reusing one environment is much more efficient than creating and destroying multiple environments.

Return value:

A non-zero return value indicates that there was a problem creating the environment. Refer to the Error Code table for a list of possible return values.

Arguments:

envP: The location in which the pointer to the newly created environment should be placed.

logfilename: The name of the log file for this environment. May be NULL (or an empty string), in which case no log file is created.

computeserver: A comma-separated list of Gurobi compute servers. You can refer to compute server machines using their names or their IP addresses.

port: The port number used to connect to the compute server. You should pass a -1 value, which indicates that the default port should be used, unless your server administrator has changed our recommended port settings.
