HPC Grid Tutorial: How to Run MATLAB

Follow these steps to run MATLAB on the Grid.

You will need to download an X window system. If you are using Unix, Linux, or OSX you can use X11. Follow the steps in the X11 Tutorial, then pick up here in this tutorial. For Windows users, you can download Xming here.

1. Launch Xming when the installation finishes. The application won't open a window, it will simply run in the background.

2. Logon to the Grid.

3. Submit an interactive job: srun -q debug -t 10:0 --mem=10G --pty bash


4. Type: module load matlab/2016b

and then enter: matlab

5. You are now running MATLAB.
