Core Management Tasks

Create and run a server that hosts deployable archives

You can create, start, and stop MATLAB® Production Server™ instances from the command line. Use the configuration properties to tailor each instance to a specific task or use. If you make changes to the configuration properties for a server that is already running, you must restart it for the changes to take effect.

Server Basics

Server Overview

The role of the server in MATLAB Production Server software.

Create Server Instance

Use the command-line to create a server instance in an on-premises MATLAB Production Server installation.

Verify Server Status

Use mps-status to check if the server is running.

Share Deployable Archive

Deploy an archive on the server.

Start and Stop Server Instance

Start Server Instance

Start a server instance using the command line.

Install Server Instance as Windows Service

Start a server instance when the host machine boots by making a server instance a Windows® service.

MATLAB Runtime Settings

Specify Default MATLAB Runtime for New Server Instances

Set the default MATLAB Runtime for new server instances in an on-premises installation.

Specify the MATLAB Runtime for a Server Instance

Specify the MATLAB Runtime installation location for your server instance.

Support Multiple MATLAB Runtime Versions

Configure the server to host deployable archives compiled using multiple MATLAB Runtime versions.

Supported MATLAB Runtime Versions

List of MATLAB Runtime versions that MATLAB Production Server supports.

Server Configuration

Configure Server

Set up the main_config file with custom parameters for your server configuration.

Control Worker Restarts

Set conditions determining when a server instance restarts worker processes.
