Maintaining a Cluster

To expand a bit on our earlier description, a Remote Services cluster consists of a set of one or more nodes running the Remote Services agent, as well as a set of runtimes that enable those nodes to execute optimization jobs. You can think of a runtime as a specific version of the Gurobi Optimizer that solves the optimization problems that are offloaded to a node in the cluster. In this section, we will first explain how to update and manage the runtimes. We will then explain how to upgrade the cluster to a new version of the Remote Services and runtimes.
