The work dictionary contains integer keys
i and dictionary values to be
given to worker
Work[i] has the following form:
Work[i]: [dict]: Required keys: 'persis_info' [dict]: Any persistent info to be sent to worker 'i' 'H_fields' [list]: The field names of the history 'H' to be sent to worker 'i' 'tag' [int]: 'EVAL_SIM_TAG'/'EVAL_GEN_TAG' if worker 'i' is to call sim/gen_func 'libE_info' [dict]: Info sent to/from worker to help manager update the 'H' Optional keys are: 'H_rows' [list of ints]: History rows to send to worker 'i' 'blocking' [list of ints]: Workers to be blocked by this calculation 'persistent' [bool]: True if worker 'i' will enter persistent mode
For allocation functions giving work dictionaries using persistent workers, see start_only_persistent.py or start_persistent_local_opt_gens.py. For a use case where the allocation and generator functions combine to do simulation evaluations with different resources (blocking some workers), see test_uniform_sampling_with_different_resources.py.
