Hi Tessa,

The cluster manager and compute server are not available with an academic license. With an academic license, you can only construct a pool of workers $$\texttt{grb_rs --worker}$$ which do not support the batch mode.

However, you can use $$\texttt{slurm}$$ and/or $$\texttt{screen}$$ to work with a batch equivalent.

Hi Jaromił.

Just to make sure I have got you correctly: With an academic license, I can not submit a distributed MIP as a batch (lsf) using the batch solve command?

Kind regards

Tessa

Hi Tessa,

Correct.

Hey.

One last question:

However, you can use slurm and/or screen to work with a batch equivalent.

What difference would using slurm instead of lsf make?

• Gurobi Staff

I have not used lsf make so I cannot tell.

Ahh, ok. Basically, however, the batch solve command does not work with any job scheduling system for Linux clusters, regardless of which one it is.

• Gurobi Staff

Yes, that's correct.

Thank you! Before, I thought you were going to tell me that another job scheduling system would be better for this, which kind of confused me. But now it's clear.
