I've encountered a curious problem when trying to run MATLAB jobs under the Sun Grid Engine. Jobs that run normally when executed from the local machine either hang or produce boost::thread_resource_errors when delegated to the same machine by SGE.
I've tried the -nojvm, -nodisplay, -nodesktop, -nosplash, and -singleCompThread launch options all to no avail. The only solution I've found is to manually increase the virtual memory allotted to MATLAB using SGE submission options. Even the simplest programs require 4GB of virtual memory before they can run successfully.
This occurs on a 64-bit machine with MATLAB releases 2011a, 2010b, 2009b, 2008b, trying to run both the 32-bit and 64-bit executables.
Has anyone encountered a similar problem?
