    I'm trying to learn how to use the distributed computing toolbox in matlab for some parallel programming stuff. Do you know any sources for beginners to learn how to use this? I'm reading the manual at the moment and i can't seem to use it. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong :S

    In particular, when i type in
    jm = findResource('jobmanager');

    i get
    "Warning: Could not contact any job manager lookup process. You may not have started a job
    manager, or multicast protocols may be failing on your network..."

    I'm not sure how i can resolve this. Can anyone help?

    When you say the manual, I assume you are refering to the Distributed Computing Toolbox help section over at the Mathworks website. This is probably the same help sections that are available through the Matlab help UI.

    I have no experience of the DCT, but looking at the findResource function syntax shouldn't the call be:

    Code ( (Unknown Language)):
    1. jm= findResource('scheduler','type','jobmanager');
