The NEOS Server offers the IBM
ILOG CPLEX Optimizer for the solution of linear programming (LP), mixed-integer
linear programming (MILP), and second-order conic programming (SOCP) problems.
Acceptable input formats for CPLEX on the NEOS server include AMPL, GAMS,
LP, MPS, and NL formats.
Details on CPLEX can be found on the IBM
Additional information on all IBM software available to academics can be
found on the IBM Academic Resources
The NEOS Server will automatically handle an NL model in either
binary or text format. NL files in either format can additionally be zipped,
gzipped, or tarred prior to submission if desired.
An options file can optionally be specified. Note: certain options
may be restricted, altered, or removed by the NEOS server prior to
solving. For example, users are limited to a max of four solver threads --
requests for more threads in the options file will not be honored.
Note: An email address is required for any submissions that use CPLEX. This email address
will be forwarded to IBM and may be used by IBM for promotional purposes.
When using the XML-RPC interface, you must add the following line into the XML file that is sent to NEOS:
