disposeDefaultEnv ( )

Dispose of the default environment.

Calling this function releases the default environment created by the Gurobi Python module. This function is particuarly useful in a long-running Python session (e.g., within a Jupyter notebook), where the Gurobi environment would otherwise continue to exist for the full duration of the session.

Note that models built with the default environment must be garbage collected before the default environment can be freed. You can force a model m to be garbage collected with the statement del m. If no references to the default environment remain, disposeDefaultEnv prints the message

Freed default Gurobi environment
to confirm it was able to dispose of the default environment.
