The latest R2012a consumes Real memory on the MAC even if it is not doing anything and just left open. Right now my MATLAB is using up 3.81GB of the Real Mem and it has been open for 48 hours or so. I have to close MATLAB every few days and restart it to release the Memory otherwise my VM starts swapping like crazy.
I do not remember facing the same problems with the older versions.
Matlab Version R 2012a OSX -Lion 10.7.4
Anyone else face the same problem? Any solutions?
