A simpler progress monitor

Project description

This consists of a single class LoopProgressMonitor that you instantiate right before a loop and then call inside the loop. It monitors how long each iteration is taking and issues a forecast of when the loop will conclude based on the number of iterations remaining and the average time per iteration so far. It prints a new predicted end time only when the most recent forecast falls too far from its internal estimate modulo some tolerance.


Python 3 with the following modules: math, time


From pypi: pip install when_will_it_end

Alternatively, clone thesourceand - cd when_will_it_end - python install


import numpy as np
import time
import when_will_it_end as wwie

number_of_iterations = 10

print('Starting time: ' + wwie.format_time(time.time()))

lpm = wwie.LoopProgressMonitor(n = number_of_iterations)
for k in range(number_of_iterations):
    _ = np.random.uniform(0,1,size=100000000)

print('Actual ending time: ' + wwie.format_time(time.time()))


Starting time: 18:04:42
Starting first of 10 iterations ...
Est. total 18.0 seconds, finish 18:05:00 after 9 iters at 1.8 sec/iter
Est. total 20.0 seconds, finish 18:05:02 after 6 iters at 2.0 sec/iter
Actual ending time: 18:05:01
