Crashing every hour

Subject: Crashing every hour

I'm using Matlab in a lab. We're performing a large
calculation without recursion using simple matrices. The
problem we're having is that Matlab will crash every hour on
the hour while doing a calculation. We are running Windows
XP. Is this a memory issue? How can we stop this?

Weird. Is it "after 60 minutes", or is it "as the system
clock rolls over to the new hour" ?

To check if it is a memory issue, you could start a plain
infinite loop and see whether the problem happened anyhow.


Something about this situation whispers to me that it -might-
be license checking that is involved. Are you running with
a network license server instead of license installed on
that particular machine? And if so, then is there a firewall
between you and the license server? If the answer to that is Yes,
then -possibly- the firewall is expiring the license server
connection, leading Matlab to fail when it next goes to check
the license. Just a hypothesis.

are you using any c-mex functions?
