Gurobi Instant Cloud

Preferences

The preferences section enables you to define and store default values and options.

Gurobi version Default value for the Gurobi version. New pools and one-time servers will take this value as default.
Idle Shutdown Idle shutdown specifies a duration limit in minutes after which the machine will auto-terminate when there is no job running or in queue. New pools and one-time servers will take this value as default.
Idle Job Timeout (v8 only) This timeout specifies a duration limit in minutes after which the job will auto-terminate when there is no command sent to the server. This is useful to avoid using resources when some clients may leave their connection open (for example in an interactive python shell) while not being active. If the value is 0, it will be disabled. New pools and one-time servers will take this value as default.
Job Limit When a machine license is 'full compute server', a maximum number of concurrent jobs can be set. New pools and one-time servers will take this value as default.
Provider The cloud provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure.
Region The region references the location of the data center where the machines are provisioned. Select a region that is closer to your operations to minimize latency. New pools and one-time servers will take this value as default.
Machine type Different machine types can be provisioned depending on the requirements (mainly memory and CPU). New pools and one-time servers will take this value as default.
Job History (v8 and later only) Changes the default selection to enable the job history with new pools and machines. Existing pools are not impacted. To enable the job history for an existing pool, please edit the pool options. When selected, job metadata and engine logs will be archived for up to 90 days and accessible in the job history view.
Max compute servers per pool When a pool is created, a size must be specified which represents the number of compute servers part of the pool. The default maximum size can be changed to go over the predefined limit.
Max distributed workers per compute server When a machine license is 'full compute server', a set of distributed workers can be defined. The default maximum number of workers can be changed to go over the predefined limit.
Enable pool static addressing (deprecated, v7.0 and 7.5 only) Enable the static pool addressing feature. With this feature a set of static IP addresses are reserved for the machines of a pool. This is useful when a customer side firewall is in place and the static IP addresses can be declared so that traffic can go through to the Gurobi Cloud machines.
