### GRBEnv()

Constructor for GRBEnv object. You have the option of constructing either a local environment, which solves Gurobi models on the local machine, or a client environment for a Gurobi Compute Server, which will solve Gurobi models on a server machine. For the latter, choose the signature that allows you to specify the names of the Gurobi Compute Servers and the priority of the associated job.

 GRBEnv GRBEnv ( )

Create a Gurobi environment (with logging disabled). This method will also populate any parameter (ComputeServer, TokenServer, ServerPassword, etc.) specified in your gurobi.lic file. This method will also check the current working directory for a file named gurobi.env, and it will attempt to read parameter settings from this file if it exists. The file should be in PRM format (briefly, each line should contain a parameter name, followed by the desired value for that parameter).

In general, you should aim to create a single Gurobi environment in your program, even if you plan to work with multiple models. Reusing one environment is much more efficient than creating and destroying multiple environments. The one exception is if you are writing a multi-threaded program, since environments are not thread safe. In this case, you will need a separate environment for each of your threads.

Return value:

An environment object (with no associated log file).

 GRBEnv GRBEnv ( boolean empty )

Create an empty Gurobi environment. Use start to start the environment.

If the environment is not empty, This method will also populate any parameter (ComputeServer, TokenServer, ServerPassword, etc.) specified in your gurobi.lic file. This method will also check the current working directory for a file named gurobi.env, and it will attempt to read parameter settings from this file if it exists. The file should be in PRM format (briefly, each line should contain a parameter name, followed by the desired value for that parameter).

In general, you should aim to create a single Gurobi environment in your program, even if you plan to work with multiple models. Reusing one environment is much more efficient than creating and destroying multiple environments. The one exception is if you are writing a multi-threaded program, since environments are not thread safe. In this case, you will need a separate environment for each of your threads.

Arguments:

empty: Indicates whether the environment should be empty. You should use empty=true if you want to set parameters before actually starting the environment. This can be useful if you want to connect to a Compute Server, a Token Server, the Gurobi Instant Cloud, a Cluster Manager or use a WLS license. See the Environment Section for more details.

Return value:

An environment object.

 GRBEnv GRBEnv ( String logFileName )

Create a Gurobi environment (with logging enabled). This method will also populate any parameter (ComputeServer, TokenServer, ServerPassword, etc.) specified in your gurobi.lic file. This method will also check the current working directory for a file named gurobi.env, and it will attempt to read parameter settings from this file if it exists. The file should be in PRM format (briefly, each line should contain a parameter name, followed by the desired value for that parameter).

Arguments:

logFileName: The desired log file name.

Return value:

An environment object.
