Description (last modified by )
The GLPK exact solver ignores msg_lev
and prints a lot of things on the screen while solving (see tests in #20424).
sage: p = MixedIntegerLinearProgram(solver="GLPK/exact") sage: p.get_backend().set_verbosity(0) sage: TestSuite(p.get_backend()).run(skip="_test_pickling") glp_exact: 5 rows, 1 columns, 4 non-zeros GNU MP bignum library is being used ...

another example.
sage: p = MixedIntegerLinearProgram(solver="GLPK/exact") sage: b = p.new_variable(nonnegative=True) sage: p.add_constraint(b[0]+b[1] == 1) sage: p.solve(log=0) glp_exact: 1 rows, 2 columns, 2 non-zeros GNU MP bignum library is being used 0: infsum = 1 (0) 1: infsum = 0 (0) * 1: objval = 0 (0) * 1: objval = 0 (0) OPTIMAL SOLUTION FOUND 0.0
However, it's not the only issue with this solver:
sage: for solver in ['Cplex', 'Gurobi', 'Coin', 'PPL', 'GLPK']: ....: p = MixedIntegerLinearProgram(solver=solver) ....: _ = p.solve() ....: sage: p = MixedIntegerLinearProgram(solver="GLPK/exact") sage: p.solve() glp_exact: problem has no rows/columns --------------------------------------------------------------------------- MIPSolverException Traceback (most recent call last) ... MIPSolverException: GLPK: Solver failure
We also have this with another solver...
sage: p = MixedIntegerLinearProgram(solver="CVXOPT") sage: p.solve() --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) ... TypeError: 'c' must be a dense column matrix

Re-reading the summary, is this a deliberate behavior from upstream? If not, ignoring the verbosity level sounds like an upstream bug. In that case I have no problem with going forward with a fix.

I had a look at the code of the backends, but I'm not confident with inheritance. The backend of GLPK/exact
inherits from the backend of GLPK
and has no specific method modifying the verbosity level. So I don't understand what's going on. However, the doc of the backend suggests that the default behavior is verbose (see after cdef class GLPKExactBackend(GLPKBackend)
).

I think it is an upstream bug that should be fixed.
Replying to dcoudert: The problem is not in our sage code.

+1 to adding a patch in Sage and submitting that patch upstream.

I am ok with patching but I prefer stuff that is also submitted upstream so we have hope that the functionality will eventually be there (cross fingers).
