Degenerate simplex moves
 Type: int
 Default value: -1
 Minimum value: -1
 Maximum value: MAXINT

Limits degenerate simplex moves. These moves are performed to improve the integrality of the current relaxation solution. By default, the algorithm chooses the number of moves to perform automatically.

Changing the value of this parameter can help performance in cases where an excessive amount of time is spent after the initial root relaxation has been solved but before the cut generation process or the root heuristics have started.

Note: Only affects mixed integer programming (MIP) models

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