I have 2013A on a win7 64 bit quod core machine. I do not have the parallel computing toolbox.
I use a parfor loop to carry out a calculation. Each calculation takes 30 mins and is just processing data held in memory. There is no I/O.
I look at windows task manager and see the average CPU load is 40% and only one core seems to be being heavily used. I know when coding in perl I can multi-thread the code to ensure each of the cores is maxed out, giving 100% usage in total.
I dont think I can set matlabpool without the PC toolbox.
How can I improve the situation?
