    Optimal umber of processes on Intel E3-1230 v3


      I am running floating point intensive matlab programs on my server having Intel E3-1230-v3 processor. I assumed since there are 8 logical cores, I should be able to run up to 8 different instances of matlab without causing a performance bottleneck. I first ran 3 instances of matlab and the completion time was around 16 hours. Then I ran 6 instances of matlab and now the total run time has shot upto 30 hours. Please let me know if this kind of behavior is expected and if I should stick to running only 4 instances of matlab at a time as the processor has 4 physical cores?
