#   This example reads a model from a file, sets up a callback that
#   monitors optimization progress and implements a custom
#   termination strategy, and outputs progress information to the
#   screen and to a log file.
#   The termination strategy implemented in this callback stops the
#   optimization of a MIP model once at least one of the following two
#   conditions have been satisfied:
#     1) The optimality gap is less than 10%
#     2) At least 10000 nodes have been explored, and an integer feasible
#        solution has been found.
#   Note that termination is normally handled through Gurobi parameters
#   (MIPGap, NodeLimit, etc.).  You should only use a callback for
#   termination if the available parameters don't capture your desired
#   termination criterion.
