Simple python multiprocessing manager

Project description

Simple multiprocessing management tool

Handles big amounts of data using python multiprocessing


The main idea is to utilize multiprocessing, by building source queue and handle items to process in workers.

Multiprocess managing is implemented using with help of that provides events, locks, shared values and stats, exception handler helper and ExitStatus

Workers for multiprocessing are built based on handlers classes.


Handlers must inherit mp_manager.base_handler.BaseHandler and at least implement:

  1. classmethod build_items() that must return iterable of items to handle by workers
  2. _handle_item() which is used to handle current item

They also could implement:

  1. log_item() that is used by manager as a source for logging
  2. _reset_stats() is used internally to reset worker dict stats related to current item

Sample usage

#!/usr/bin/env python3.7
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

import math
import random
import time

from mp_manager.base_handler import BaseHandler
from mp_manager.process_helpers import Stats, ns_container
from mp_manager.utils import build_batches

class SampleHandler(BaseHandler):

    batch_size = 2

    def build_items(cls, *args, **kwargs):
        total = 100
        batches_total = int(math.ceil(total / cls.batch_size))

        Stats.set_stats_val('items_total', total)
        Stats.set_stats_val('batches_total', batches_total)
        ns_container.set_shared_value('shared_data', cls._data_to_share(),
        for i, val in enumerate(build_batches(range(total), cls.batch_size)):
            yield i, val

    def log_item(self):
        return f'{self.current_item[0]} / {Stats.stats.batches_total}'

    def _data_to_share(cls):
        return dict(somekey="some value")

    def _reset_stats(self):
        self.stats = {
            'items_processed': 0,
            'items_positive': 0,
            'items_negative': 0,

    def _handle_item(self):
        num, items = self.current_item
        for item in items:

    def _process_number(self, item):
        value = math.factorial(item) / math.cos(item)
        self.stats['items_processed'] += 1
        if value > 0:
            self.stats['items_positive'] += 1
            self.stats['items_negative'] += 1

if __name__ == '__main__':
    import logging
    from mp_manager.manager import ImportManager

    status = ImportManager(SampleHandler, num_workers=8).run()
