MATLABCluster.jl package provides an interface for starting Julia worker processes using MATLAB™ Parallel Computing Toolbox cluster profiles, including profiles configured to connect to a MATLAB™ Distributed Computing Server. You cannot use
MATLABCluster.jl without having purchased and installed a copy of MATLAB™ and the MATLAB™ Parallel Computing Toolbox from MathWorks. This package is available free of charge and in no way replaces or alters any functionality of MathWorks's MATLAB product.
To connect to a MATLAB cluster:
using MATLABCluster addprocs(1, # The number of workers you want dir="/path/to/julia/usr/bin", # Path to Julia on your cluster cman=MATLABManager("profile"), # The cluster profile, set up within MATLAB tunnel=true, # Only necessary if the workers are behind NAT sshflags=`-c blowfish` # Only for NAT; faster than AES (default) )
- Currently output from the workers is not transmitted back to Julia
- This may not work if the MATLAB Job Scheduler is running on Windows (but let me know if you try)
