### ScaleFlag

Model scaling
 Type: int Default value: -1 Minimum value: -1 Maximum value: 3

Controls model scaling. By default, the rows and columns of the model are scaled in order to improve the numerical properties of the constraint matrix. The scaling is removed before the final solution is returned. Scaling typically reduces solution times, but it may lead to larger constraint violations in the original, unscaled model. Turning off scaling (ScaleFlag=0) can sometimes produce smaller constraint violations. Choosing a different scaling option can sometimes improve performance for particularly numerically difficult models.
