Easily run Python functions in parallel and cache the results

Project description

NumPipe

NumPipe is a Python software package that makes long-running tasks easier and faster by executing code in embarrassingly parallel and caching the output to HDF5 files.

Features

  • Combine computation and visualization code into single scripts. Only re-run computations on request
  • Use the yield statement to return data over time that will be periodically cached to file
  • Specify dependencies between cached functions
  • Progress bars similar to tqdm that work in parallel to show the progress of running tasks
  • An optional Telegram Messenger bot that can notify the user of completion and send Matplotlib figures and animations
  • Command line arguments to re-run tasks and automatically save Matplotlib figures and animations
  • Option to use the Slurm Workload Manager to automatically create and submit an sbatch file (used on many compute clusters)

Installation

NumPipe can be installed with pip

pip install numpipe

Examples

single task

from numpipe import scheduler, pbar
from time import sleep
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

job = scheduler()

@job.cache
def sim():
    for i in pbar(range(100)):
        sleep(.1)   # long running task...
        yield dict(i=i, x=i**2)

@job.plots
def vis():
    var = job.load(sim)
    plt.plot(var.i, var.x)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    job.run()

parallel tasks

from numpipe import scheduler, pbar
from time import sleep
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

job = scheduler()

@job.cache
def sim(power):
    for i in pbar(range(100)):
        sleep(.1)   # long running task...
        yield dict(i=i, x=i**power)

@job.plots
def vis():
    for name, var in job.load(sim):
        plt.plot(var.i, var.x)

for i in range(3):
    job.add(sim, power=i)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    job.run()
