How to Improve Performance in Acceleration Modes


To get the best performance when accelerating your models:

  • Verify that the Configuration Parameters dialog box settings are as follows:

    Solver data inconsistencynone
    Array bounds exceedednone
    Signal storage reuseselected

  • Disable Stateflow® debugging and animation.

  • When logging large amounts of data (for instance, when using the Workspace I/O, To Workspace, To File, or Scope blocks), use decimation or limit the output to display only the last part of the simulation.

  • Customize the code generation process to improve simulation speed. For details, see Customize the Build Process.

C Compilers

On computers running the Microsoft® Windows® operating system, the accelerator and rapid accelerator modes use the default 64-bit C compiler supplied by MathWorks® to compile your model. If you have a C compiler installed on your PC, you can configure the mex command to use it instead. You might choose to do this if your C compiler produces highly optimized code since this would further improve acceleration.
