Cleaning parallel workers messages appears just immediately after running simulations when using parsim

8 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to run 100 parallel simulations using parsim. If I run 4 simulations (also in parallel), it runs perfectly. However, when I decided to run 100 simulations the parpool starts normally, but right after the "Running Simulations" message appears, it mentions that it is "Cleaning up parallel workers" as if it has already finished.

I had waited hours, and not even 1 simulation has conclude.

I'm not a Simulink user, so bare with me in case I take you down the wrong path.
I'm guessing you are setting the parsim RunInBackground option to 'on', which will display the message. Take a look at
to see if it's required or if batchsim is a better option for your workflow.

Thanks for the information. Apparently I was uploading too much data into the MATLAB workers and these cannot withstand it. I reduce it and it runs perfectly. However, batchsim might we a simpler way to upload data into a cluster and run my parallel simulations.
Have a pleasante day Raymond.
