Parallel Molecular Dynamics Analysis tools
This project is alpha software and not API stable. It will and should rapidly evolve to test different approaches to implementing parallel analysis in a seamless and intuitive fashion.
For example, run a rmsd analysis on all available cores:
import MDAnalysis as mda from pmda import rms u = mda.Universe(top, traj) ref = mda.Universe(top, traj) rmsd_ana = rms.RMSD(u.atoms, ref.atoms).run(n_jobs=-1) print(rmsd_ana.rmsd)
By default PMDA use the multiprocessing scheduler of dask. This is sufficient if you want to run your simulation on a single machine. If your analysis takes a very long time (>30 min) you can also spread it to several nodes using the distributed scheduler. To do this you can pass a scheduler keyword argument to the run method.
To write your own parallel algorithms you can subclass the pmda.parallel.ParallelAnalysisBase class.
