Design changes

  • Master runs IPController
  • Slave runs IPEngine
  • Clients can use the IPython.parallel.Client class to talk to IPController
  • No compiling needed anymore. Just Python code.
  • ZMQ, PyZMQ, MongoDB, PyMongo and IPython become dependencies.
  • MongoDB is be used for information storage of tasks, jobs, pools, … .
  • There is no direct access to frame information anymore. Jobs can be devided into tasks. Depending on the blocksize, one task can consist of one or more frames.
  • High water mark (HWM) can be set for IPEngines in order to control how many tasks are queued to each engine and to always keep some tasks for late joining engines.
  • DrQueueIPython provides a Python module for easy accces to the underlying technology. This makes integration into other software which uses Python possible.
