Utility for facilitating parallel parameter sweeps.

Project description

parasweep Documentation Status

parasweep is a free and open-source Python utility for facilitating parallel parameter sweeps with computational models. Instead of requiring parameters to be passed by command-line, which can be error-prone and time-consuming, parasweep leverages the model’s existing configuration files using a template system, requiring minimal code changes. After the sweep values are specified, a parallel job is dispatched for each parameter set, with support for common high-performance computing job schedulers. Post-processing is facilitated by providing a mapping between the parameter sets and the simulations.
