How to determine whether Matlab's Distributed Computing Server is available?
8 views (last 30 days)
The company I work for has a decent sized HPC facility. I know we have a few licences for the "Parallel Computing Toolbox" (for running on individual machines), but I do not see anything specifically about the "Distributed Computing Server" when I type "ver" at Matlab's command line. Should I be able to see whether the "Distributed Computing Server" is available through the "ver" command? If not, how would one go about determining this information?

Elige, MATLAB Distributed Computing Server (MDCS) would be installed on the HPC server and you not on your local machine. The only thing you need on your local machine is Parallel Computing Toolbox (PCT) in order to be able to ship of jobs to the cluster.
If you are using a recent release of MATLAB click on Parallel on the toolstrip and click on Discover Clusters. PCT will then scan the network to see if there are clusters running MDCS which you can use. HTH.
