Limits the amount of time spent in the NoRel heuristic
 Type: double
 Default value: 0
 Minimum value: 0
 Maximum value: Infinity

Limits the amount of time (in seconds) spent in the NoRel heuristic. This heuristic searches for high-quality feasible solutions before solving the root relaxation. It can be quite useful on models where the root relaxation is particularly expensive.

Note that this parameter will introduce non-determinism - different runs may take different paths. Use the NoRelHeurWork parameter for deterministic results.

Note: Only affects mixed integer programming (MIP) models
