### CSQueueTimeout

Queue timeout for new jobs
 Type: double Default value: -1 Minimum value: Infinity Maximum value: -1

This parameter allows you to set a limit (in seconds) on how long a new Compute Server job will wait in queue before it gives up (and reports a JOB_REJECTED error). Note that there might be a delay of up to 20 seconds for the actual signaling of the time out.

Any negative value will allow a job to sit in the Compute Server queue indefinitely.

You must set this parameter through a gurobi.lic file (using QUEUETIMEOUT=n) or an empty environment. Changing the parameter after your environment has been created will have no effect.

Refer to the Gurobi Remote Services Reference Manual for more information on starting Compute Server jobs.

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