[tanjad said:]Dear members,
I have some technical questions about this new issue. We have an HPC
Linux Cluster which we want to use for running MIP optimizers. We would
like to perform a synchronous execution of programs (each program running
on a different CPU), where each thread contains a call to a CPLEX MIP
optimizer. We are not sure if one CPLEX licence is enough to perfom that
task. If not, could you please inform us where we could find a detailed
instruction about the installation of a number of sequential licenses on a
cluster computer? Also, in that case, we would like to know how to control the
usage of the licenses installed, i.e. how to guarantee that each time
the program is run, CPUs selected for execution will have access to at
least one CPLEX licence. We assume that the number of available
licenses will be smaller then the number of available CPUs.
Since the algorithm we want to test is very specific, we insist on using
a number of sequential optimizers within the cluster computer, rather
than using a parallel CPLEX optimizer.
I would be very grateful for your help.
With kindest regards,
