Batch Optimization

Batch optimization is a feature available with the Gurobi Cluster Manager. It allows a client program to build an optimization model, submit it to a Compute Server cluster (through a Cluster Manager), and later check on the status of the model and retrieve its solution. Once a batch is submitted to the Cluster Manager, it is identified through a unique BatchID. The client program (or any other program) can use this ID to query the BatchStatus of the batch (submitted, completed, etc.). Once the batch has completed and a solution is available, the client can retrieve that solution as a JSON string.

This section explains the steps required to perform the various tasks listed above. We'll use the Python example, which is included with the distribution, to illustrate these steps.
