Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): INTEGER

Default: automatic (see discussion)

Description

The optional processors_per_evaluation specification supports user override of the automatic parallel configuration for the number of processors in each evaluation server. That is, if the automatic configuration is undesirable for some reason, the user can enforce a desired server size at the evaluation parallelism level. Refer to ParallelLibrary and the Parallel Computing chapter of the Users Manual [5] for additional information.
