StartNodeLimit


StartNodeLimit

Limit MIP start sub-MIP nodes
 Type: int
 Default value: -1
 Minimum value: -3
 Maximum value: MAXINT

This parameter limits the number of branch-and-bound nodes explored when completing a partial MIP start. The default value of -1 uses the value of the SubMIPNodes parameter. A value of -2 means to only check full MIP starts for feasibility and to ignore partial MIP starts. A value of -3 shuts off MIP start processing entirely. Non-negative values are node limits.

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
