disposeDefaultEnv ( )

Dispose of the default environment.

Calling this function releases the default environment created by the Gurobi Python module. This function is particularly useful in a long-running Python session (e.g., within a Jupyter notebook), where the Gurobi environment would otherwise continue to exist for the full duration of the session.

Note that models built with the default environment must be garbage collected before the default environment can be freed. You can force a model m to be garbage collected with the statement del m. A call to disposeDefaultEnv prints the message

Freeing default Gurobi environment
and then attempts to free the default environment. Note however that this attempt may fail if some models referencing the default environment have not yet been disposed of. If that is the case, the default environment will be automatically freed when the last model referencing it is disposed of.
