According to the windows task manager, Matlab consumes 430,000 K memory. This is without any functions running and variables cleared.(ie as at start up/idle) I added an extra tool box(plexim) recently. I think this caused the high memory consumption. As I remember steady state memory usage used to be less than 300,000k. I have now uninstalled plexim. Yet the memory consumption did not reduce at a noticeable magnitude. Furthermore in my r2012b the memory consumption is 235,000. Where as r2014b consumes 430,000k.
My questions are:
- Is the memory usage dependant on the system path, the physical size of the folders in search path. (or the number of folders)
- Is the memory usage dependant on the user defined variables
- Are they any tips to reduce memory consumption
