Gurobi Instant Cloud allows the user to define machine pools which are dynamically provisioned to solve the optimization problems submitted by a client. When there is more than one entity using the license (for example, different users or different departments), it may be desirable to split the consumption along those entity lines.
Setting up different pools
The best solution to this is to set up different pools, that is to define one pool per entity (user, department, team, ...) that should use it:
In this example, TestPool1 and TestPool19 may be assigned to different entities, but they are still managed by the same license ID. To ensure that everyone uses the correct assigned pool, they simply need to use a license file for that pool.
The usage is tracked separately and can be viewed in the billing statement:
