Multyvac for Python
Multyvac gives Python developers a simple interface for offloading computational workloads to the cloud.
You need to set an Api Key for your machine. To do this, run the following from your shell:
$ python -m multyvac.setup
Follow the on screen instructions to complete the setup process.
Open up Python, and import multyvac:
>>> import multyvac
If you get an ImportError, something went wrong. Try running the setup again.
Running a Job
The idea is to take a function that you would normally run on your own machine, but instead run it on Multyvac. Here’s an example of how you would offload a function for adding two numbers:
>>> def add(x, y): ... return x + y >>> # run add on your machine >>> add(1, 2) 3 >>> # submit add to Multyvac >>> job_id = multyvac.submit(add, 1, 2) >>> # get job object >>> job = multyvac.get(job_id) >>> # wait for job to finish processing >>> job.wait() >>> # verify the result is the same >>> job.result 3
