Excessive ram usage when plotting using 2014b 64bit

3 views (last 30 days)
In 2014a 32bit and 2013b 64bit, I've made dozens of figures with multiple arrays, subplots, and specified labels with no issues. However running the same code in 2014b 64bit, uses several gigabytes of ram and the program will often crash. Has anyone else encountered this problem? The amount of ram being used for simple tasks in 2014b has made it impossible for me to use it reliably.

I use MATLAB2014b on 64 bit Windows 7 machine and no issues for intensive graphics/plotting. Perhaps MATLAB2014 needs to be configured a certain way for your machine, see:
Or try re-installing MATLAB and see if it resolves your problem.

I can't guess what you're seeing without more details, but the memory consumption of MATLAB Graphics often tracks pretty closely to the object creation time discussed in this post on the graphics blog. If that is what you're encountering, then the suggestions in that post, and in the comments at the bottom, and in Yair's post on his blog, are all good places to start.
