Re: [Condor-users] Condor and Matlab: BASICS

I don’t have access to any of the matlab tool boxes such as distributed computing or parallel processing etc.


I want to be able to pass jobs from the machine running my code to a central manager. The central manager then farms out the jobs to workers. Each worker has a fixed IP address.


The machine running my code, is receiving data in real time, and needs to process that (LAPACK style calculations) and hence the requirement for CPU.


I know I have to set up condor daemons on each worker machine and also set up the central manager correctly. What I don’t know is all the other stuff, such as do I need to install matlab on each worker? What do calls from matlab to condor look like? Etc etc.


Really looking for an example of someone having done this before, which will allow me to get started on my own.


Thank you

Hello matlabboy,
It really depends on what you want to use.  Are you using matlab distributed comupting toolbox or do u just want to use
condor from within matlab to run your jobs. Have you looked at the the integration subdirectory in distcomp tool box. It is not at all complicated to use. I can walk you thought the process if you can provide more info on your code and your setup.

I am new to Condor. I am running Vista and Matlab.


I am wanting to set up a Beowulf cluster of 15 Dell duel core machines connected on a LAN (each dedicated only to the condor work). Each machine running Vista and a condor daemon.


I have some code in Matlab that is demanding and I need to speed up processing for it.


Could anyone advise on setting up a basic config from scratch? There isnt really this information out-there.
