Specification

Alias: none

Argument(s): INTEGER

Default: automatic (see discussion)

Description

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