Start Admin Center

Admin Center is a tool you can use to control and monitor the MATLAB® Parallel Server™ processes of a MATLAB Job Scheduler cluster. Admin Center does not support any common job scheduler (CJS) or third-party scheduler clusters.

You start Admin Center in a command prompt by executing the following:

  • matlabroot/toolbox/parallel/bin/admincenter (on UNIX® operating systems)

  • matlabroot\toolbox\parallel\bin\admincenter.bat (on Microsoft® Windows® operating systems)

The first time you start Admin Center, you see a welcome dialog box.

Dialog box has a welcome message and options for next steps

A new session of Admin Center has no cluster hosts associated with it, so your first step is to identify the hosts you want to include in your listing. Click Add or Find.

Setup Session

When using Admin Center to set up a cluster for MATLAB Parallel Server, follow these steps:

  1. Identify the hosts on which to run the MATLAB Job Scheduler and the workers and, if necessary, start the mjs process on these hosts. For details, see Add Hosts.

  2. Start the scheduler. For details, see Start MATLAB Job Scheduler.

  3. Start the cluster workers. For details, see Workers Resources.

If you start Admin Center again on the same host, Admin Center loads your previous session for that host. Unless the update rate is set to never, Admin Center immediately updates the listed hosts and processes. To clear this information and start a new session, select File > New Session.
