Queuing and Load Balancing

Gurobi Remote Services support queuing and load balancing. You can set a limit on the number of simultaneous jobs each Compute Server will run. When this limit has been reached, subsequent jobs will be queued. If you have multiple Compute Server nodes configured in a cluster, the current job load is automatically balanced among the available servers.

By default, the Gurobi job queue is serviced in a First-In, First-Out (FIFO) fashion. However, jobs can be given different priorities. Jobs with higher priorities are then selected from the queue before jobs with lower priorities.
