### TimeLimit

Time limit
 Type: double Default value: Infinity Minimum value: 0 Maximum value: Infinity

Limits the total time expended (in seconds). Optimization returns with a TIME_LIMIT status if the limit is exceeded (see the Status Code section for further details).

Note that optimization may not stop immediately upon hitting the time limit. It will stop after performing the required additional computations of the attributes associated with the terminated optimization. As a result, the Runtime attribute may be larger than the specified TimeLimit upon completion, and repeating the optimization with a TimeLimit set to the Runtime attribute of the stopped optimization may result in additional computations and a larger attribute value.
