Re: [Condor-users] Matlab Compiler and Condor under Windows

I'm not sure if it will help but we use Octave, the freeware MATLAB clone for most of our Condor work. You can get it to compile so that it uses Condor checkpointing as well. It can feel a bit slower than MATLAB in places but it does the job pretty well.

Hi there,

I recently installed Matlab on my Central manager and "just" Condor on
the client nodes. To implement a distributed Matlab, I just compiled the
m-files and sent them, via the Condor network, to the clients. The
clients need to have acces to the appropriate  Matlab environment, which
I realised by sharing the matlab-runtime (.../win32/bin/) folder on the
CM. With up to five nodes its working absolutely fine, but, if more
nodes wanted to access the shared folder they got blocked.

I found a special hint in the Matlab compiler, which told me some about
threadlocking for this environment (runtime env.). So, now I wanted to
ask, if sombody made similar experiences.

The Matlab license on the server node is just for one workstation. Do I
need to install a server license??

I found a way to solve this problem by installing the Matlab Component
Runtime on each participating node, but, I want to find a solution,
where I can use just one Matlab installation and hundreds of Condor
equipped nodes for speeding up my applications. No use of extra Matlab
installation (or MCR), free of licenses ... and so on.

I hope anyone can help me ;-)

With kind regards,
