Performance Advisor

Run checks on model to improve simulation performance


The Performance Advisor checks for configuration settings that slow down simulation and produces a report of suggested changes. You can configure the Performance Advisor to apply changes suggested in the report automatically, or you can make changes to your model manually. When you configure the Performance Advisor to apply changes automatically, the Performance Advisor verifies that the change improves performance without affecting results before applying the change.

When you use the Performance Advisor to modify your model, the Performance Advisor does not save the changes automatically. You must save the model.

The Performance Advisor analyzes only the top model and does not traverse model reference boundaries or library links.

Performance Advisor

Open the Performance Advisor

  • Simulink® Toolstrip: On the Debug tab, click Performance Advisor.

  • MATLAB® Command Window: Enter performanceadvisor(modelName), where modelName specifies the name or handle for the model you want to analyze. If the model is not already open, the function opens the model as well as the Performance Advisor.
