Distributed MIP job count
 Type: int
 Default value: 0
 Minimum value: 0
 Maximum value: MAXINT

Enables distributed MIP. A value of n causes the MIP solver to divide the work of solving a MIP model among n machines. Use the ComputeServer parameter to indicate the name of the cluster where you would like your distributed MIP job to run (or use WorkerPool if your client machine will act as manager and you just need a pool of workers).

The distributed MIP solver produces a slightly different log from the standard MIP solver, and provides different callbacks as well. Please refer to the Distributed Algorithms section of the Gurobi Remote Services Reference Manual for additional details.

One important note about integer-valued parameters: while the maximum value that can be stored in a signed integer is <span>$</span>2^{31}-1<span>$</span>, we use a MAXINT value of 2,000,000,000. Attempting to set an integer parameter to a value larger than this maximum will produce an error.

Note: Only affects mixed integer programming (MIP) models
