Module to handle a task.

class qarnot.task.Task(connection: Any, name: str, profile_or_pool: Optional[Union[str, qarnot.pool.Pool]] = None, instancecount_or_range: Union[int, str] = 1, shortname: Optional[str] = None, job: Optional[Any] = None)[source]

Bases: object

Represents a Qarnot task.

__init__(connection: Any, name: str, profile_or_pool: Optional[Union[str, qarnot.pool.Pool]] = None, instancecount_or_range: Union[int, str] = 1, shortname: Optional[str] = None, job: Optional[Any] = None)[source]

Create a new Task.

Parameters
  • connection (qarnot.connection.Connection) – the cluster on which to send the task

  • name (str) – given name of the task

  • profile_or_pool (str or Pool or None) – which profile to use with this task, or which Pool to run task,

  • instancecount_or_range (int or str) – number of instances or ranges on which to run task

  • shortname (str) – userfriendly task name

  • job (Job) – which job to attach the task to

run(output_dir: Optional[str] = None, job_timeout: Optional[float] = None, live_progress: bool = False, results_progress: Optional[bool] = None) None[source]

Submit a task, wait for the results and download them if required.

Parameters
  • output_dir (str) – (optional) path to a directory that will contain the results

  • job_timeout (float) – (optional) Number of seconds before the task abort() if it is not already finished

  • live_progress (bool) – (optional) display a live progress

  • results_progress (bool or function(float, float, str)) – (optional) can be a callback (read,total,filename) or True to display a progress bar

Raises

Note

Will ensure all added file are on the resource bucket regardless of their uploading mode.

Note

If this function is interrupted (script killed for example), but the task is submitted, the task will still be executed remotely (results will not be downloaded)

Warning

Will override output_dir content.

resume(output_dir: str, job_timeout: Optional[float] = None, live_progress: bool = False, results_progress: Optional[bool] = None) None[source]

Resume waiting for this task if it is still in submitted mode. Equivalent to wait() + download_results().

Parameters
  • output_dir (str) – path to a directory that will contain the results

  • job_timeout (float) – Number of seconds before the task abort() if it is not already finished

  • live_progress (bool) – display a live progress

  • results_progress (bool or function(float, float, str)) – can be a callback (read,total,filename) or True to display a progress bar

Raises

Note

Do nothing if the task has not been submitted.

Warning

Will override output_dir content.

submit() None[source]

Submit task to the cluster if it is not already submitted.

Raises

Note

Will ensure all added files are on the resource bucket regardless of their uploading mode.

Note

To get the results, call download_results() once the job is done.

abort() None[source]

Abort this task if running.

Raises
update_resources() None[source]

Update resources for a running task.

The typical workflow is as follows:
  1. Upload new files on your resource bucket,

  2. Call this method,

  3. The new files will appear on all the compute nodes in the $DOCKER_WORKDIR folder

Note: There is no way to know when the files are effectively transfered. This information is available on the compute node only. Note: The update is additive only: files deleted from the bucket will NOT be deleted from the task’s resources directory.

Raises
delete(purge_resources: bool = False, purge_results: bool = False) None[source]

Delete this task on the server.

Parameters
  • purge_resources (bool) – parameter value is used to determine if the bucket is also deleted. Defaults to False.

  • purge_results (bool) – parameter value is used to determine if the bucket is also deleted. Defaults to False.

Raises
update(flushcache: bool = False) None[source]

Update the task object from the REST Api. The flushcache parameter can be used to force the update, otherwise a cached version of the object will be served when accessing properties of the object. Some methods will flush the cache, like submit(), abort(), wait() and instant(). Cache behavior is configurable with auto_update and update_cache_time.

Raises
classmethod from_json(connection: Any, json_task: Dict, is_summary: bool = False) Any[source]

Create a Task object from a json task.

Parameters
Returns

The created Task.

commit() None[source]

Replicate local changes on the current object instance to the REST API

Raises

Note

When updating buckets’ properties, auto update will be disabled until commit is called.

wait(timeout: Optional[float] = None, live_progress: bool = False) bool[source]

Wait for this task until it is completed.

Parameters
  • timeout (float) – maximum time (in seconds) to wait before returning (None => no timeout)

  • live_progress (bool) – display a live progress

Return type

bool

Returns

Is the task finished

Raises
snapshot(interval: int) None[source]

Start snapshooting results. If called, this task’s results will be periodically updated, instead of only being available at the end.

Snapshots will be taken every interval second from the time the task is submitted.

Parameters

interval (int) – the interval in seconds at which to take snapshots

Raises

Note

To get the temporary results, call download_results().

instant() None[source]

Make a snapshot of the current task.

Raises

Note

To get the temporary results, call download_results().
