ObservablePmap

distributed map returning an observable for following worker progress

Directly setting worker status message – opmap

The opmap function is a wrapper around pmap which allows workers to report their status. The function passed to opmap takes as its first argument a callback setmessage that can be used to set a status message for the current worker. Unlike pmap, the mapping is performed asynchronously. opmap returns an Observable summary string of worker statuses, and the Task performing the mapping.

Example

Running some fake work and viewing worker state in IJulia or Juno plot pane using HTML:

using Distributed
addprocs(2)

@everywhere using ObservablePmap
using CSSUtil: vbox

obs, task = opmap(1:5; schedule_now=false, on_error=identity) do setmessage, x
    setmessage("Initializing...")
    sleep(1)
    n = rand(2:10)
    for i=1:n
        setmessage("Fooing $x-bars ($i/$n) ")
        x==3 && error("Error at $i")
        sleep(rand())
    end
    setmessage("All $x-bars successfully fooed.")
end

html = map(x -> HTML("<pre>$x</pre>"), obs)
schedule(task)
vbox(html)  # not necessary on IJulia

Here's what the output looks like in Juno's plot pane:

Observing log messages – ologpmap

When using ologpmap, log messages produced by workers are used as their status message. Accordingly, the function argument to ologpmap does not take an additional setmessage argument. By default, log messages in workers are processed by a Base.CoreLogging.SimpleLogger, and its output is used as the status message. The logger_f keyword argument to ologpmap can be used to specify a different logger: specifically, logger_f(io) should produce a logger writing log messages to io.

Example

This example uses ProgressLogging.jl and TerminalLoggers.jl to show progress bars.

using Distributed
addprocs(2)
@everywhere using ObservablePmap
@everywhere using ProgressLogging
@everywhere using TerminalLoggers
using CSSUtil: vbox

summ, task = ologpmap( 'a':'e', 2:2:10; logger_f=TerminalLogger ) do c, x
    @withprogress name="Processing '$c'" for i=1:x
        sleep(rand())
        @logprogress i/x
    end
    @info "finished '$c'."
    x
end

html = map(x -> HTML("<pre>$x</pre>"), summ)
vbox(html)
