Location of a MATLAB Runtime installation
mcr-root specifies the path to a MATLAB® Runtime installation on a system that has a MATLAB
Production Server™ installed.
You can configure a server instance to use multiple MATLAB Runtime versions by specifying multiple
mcr-root properties. To do
so, specify the
mcr-root property with the path to each MATLAB Runtime installation on a separate line, starting from the latest version to the oldest.
The server instance scans the list of specified
mcr-root properties in
order from first to last, then chooses the first MATLAB Runtime installation capable of processing a server request. A MATLAB Runtime installation can process a server request if it is compatible with the
deployable archive containing the MATLAB function being evaluated. When you configure the
server to use multiple MATLAB Runtime versions, the server uses dynamic worker pool management, where it starts the
worker processes in response to demand, and stops them in response to system resource
utilization. Specifying multiple MATLAB Runtime installations of the same version has no effect on server performance.
An installation of MATLAB Production Server supports MATLAB Runtime versions up to six releases back.
Specify the path to a MATLAB Runtime installation on a local file system when configuring a server instance. Specifying a path on network partition might cause worker processes to fail.
All values for
mcr-root must be for the same operating system and
For a server environment deployed in the Cloud, the deployment sets the
mcr-root property to support multiple MATLAB Runtime versions.
Path to the root folder of the MATLAB Runtime installation.
The special value
mCRuNsETtOKEN indicates to the
mps-start command that a server is not configured to use a MATLAB Runtime. Running the
mps-start command without configuring
MATLAB Runtime results in an error.
Use the latest version of the MATLAB Runtime.
Use two versions of the MATLAB Runtime.
