Type: double
Modifiable: No

Work spent on the most recent optimization. In contrast to Runtime, work is deterministic, meaning that you will get exactly the same result every time provided you solve the same model on the same hardware with the same parameter and attribute settings. The units on this metric are arbitrary. One work unit corresponds very roughly to one second on a single thread, but this greatly depends on the hardware on which Gurobi is running and the model that is being solved.

For examples of how to query or modify attributes, refer to our Attribute Examples.
