makeExperimentRegistry: Construct a registry object for experiments.

Description Usage Arguments Value

View source: R/ExperimentRegistry.R

Description

Note that if you don't want links in your paths (file.dir, work.dir) to get resolved and have complete control over the way the path is used internally, pass an absolute path which begins with “/”.

Every object is a list that contains the passed arguments of the constructor.

makeExperimentRegistry(id = "BatchExperimentRegistry", file.dir,
  sharding = TRUE, work.dir, multiple.result.files = FALSE, seed,
  packages = character(0L), src.dirs = character(0L),
  src.files = character(0L), skip = TRUE)

Arguments

id

[character(1)]
Name of registry. Displayed e.g. in mails or in cluster queue. Default is “BatchExperimentRegistry”.

file.dir

[character(1)]
Path where files regarding the registry / jobs should be saved. Default is dQuote<name of registry>_files in current working directory.

sharding

[logical(1)]
Enable sharding to distribute result files into different subdirectories? Important if you have many experiments. Default is TRUE.

work.dir

[character(1)]
Working directory for R process when experiment is executed. Default is the current working directory when registry is created.

multiple.result.files

[logical(1)]
Should a result file be generated for every list element of the returned list of the algorithm function? Note that your algorithm functions in addAlgorithm must return named lists if this is set to TRUE. The result file will be named “<id>-result-<element name>.RData” instead of “<id>-result.RData”. Default is FALSE.

seed

[integer(1)]
Start seed for experiments. The first experiment in the registry will use this seed, for the subsequent ones the seed is incremented by 1. Default is a random number from 1 to .Machine$integer.max/2.

packages

[character]
Packages that will always be loaded on each node. Default is character(0).

src.dirs

[character]
Directories relative to your work.dir containing R scripts to be sourced on registry load (both on slave and master). Files not matching the pattern “\.[Rr]$” are ignored. Useful if you have many helper functions that are needed during the execution of your jobs. These files should only contain function definitions and no executable code. Default is character(0).

src.files

[character]
R scripts files relative to your work.dir to be sourced on registry load (both on slave and master). Useful if you have many helper functions that are needed during the execution of your jobs. These files should only contain function definitions and no executable code. Default is character(0).

skip

[logical(1)]
Skip creation of a new registry if a registry is found in file.dir. Defaults to TRUE.

Value

[ExperimentRegistry]
