# QueueWorkerResources¶

class propertyestimator.backends.dask.QueueWorkerResources(number_of_threads=1, number_of_gpus=0, preferred_gpu_toolkit=None, per_thread_memory_limit=<Quantity(1, 'gigabyte')>, wallclock_time_limit='01:00')[source]

An extended resource object with properties specific to calculations which will run on queue based resources, such as LSF, PBS or SLURM.

__init__(number_of_threads=1, number_of_gpus=0, preferred_gpu_toolkit=None, per_thread_memory_limit=<Quantity(1, 'gigabyte')>, wallclock_time_limit='01:00')[source]

Constructs a new ComputeResources object.

Notes

Both the requested number_of_threads and the number_of_gpus must be less than or equal to the number of threads (/cpus/cores) and GPUs available to each compute node in the cluster respectively, such that a single worker is able to be accommodated by a single compute node.

Parameters
• per_thread_memory_limit (simtk.Quantity) – The maximum amount of memory available to each thread.

• wallclock_time_limit (str) – The maximum amount of wall clock time that a worker can run for. This should be a string of the form HH:MM where HH is the number of hours and MM the number of minutes

Methods

 __init__([number_of_threads, …]) Constructs a new ComputeResources object.

Attributes

 gpu_device_indices The indices of the GPUs to run on. number_of_gpus The number of GPUs available to a calculation worker. number_of_threads The number of threads available to a calculation worker. per_thread_memory_limit The maximum amount of memory available to each thread, such that the total memory limit will be per_cpu_memory_limit * number_of_threads. preferred_gpu_toolkit The preferred toolkit to use when running on GPUs. wallclock_time_limit The maximum amount of wall clock time that a worker can run for.
