Parallelization in dynare++


According to the tutorial, dynare++ is capable of using parallel threads when running simulations by including the option “–threads #]”, but I can’t get this parallelization to actually work. No matter how many threads I set, dynare++ only seems to use a single thread. My processor is a quad-core with hyper-threading, so in principle I should be able to run up to 8 parallel threads (something I have no trouble doing with, for example, MATLAB’s parallel computing toolbox).

Aside from setting the “threads” option when running dynare++, is there something else that needs to be done in order to get the parallelization to work?

For the record, I’m running dynare version 4.3.3 on Windows 7 with an Intel i7-3770 processor.
