3 Remote optimization¶
3.1 The OptServer¶
Since version 8 MOSEK is able to off-load optimization problems remotely to a listening server both in a synchronous and asynchronous way. The OptServer is a simple server that accepts and executes optimization problems from a MOSEK client or using HTTP commands.
The main functionalities are
- receive optimization problems using HTTP/HTTPS protocol,
- accept incoming problem in any file format supported by MOSEK,
- OptServer also acts as a tiny web server to provide a minimal GUI for management.
Observe the OptServer is only available for Linux 64bit platform but can be used from any client platform. The OptServer is distributed as a binary along with a few Python scripts that can be easily modified by the user.
