Arguments

fun

A function to call

...

Objects to be iterated in each function call

const

A list of constant arguments passed to each function call

export

List of objects to be exported to the worker

pkgs

Character vector of packages to load on the worker

seed

A seed to set for each function call

memory

Short for template=list(memory=value)

template

A named list of values to fill in template

n_jobs

The number of LSF jobs to submit; upper limit of jobs if job_size is given as well

job_size

The number of function calls per job

split_array_by

The dimension number to split any arrays in `...`; default: last

rettype

Return type of function call (vector type or 'list')

fail_on_error

If an error occurs on the workers, continue or fail?

workers

Optional instance of QSys representing a worker pool

log_worker

Write a log file for each worker

chunk_size

Number of function calls to chunk together defaults to 100 chunks per worker or max. 10 kb per chunk

timeout

Maximum time in seconds to wait for worker (default: Inf)

max_calls_worker

Maxmimum number of function calls that will be sent to one worker

verbose

Print status messages and progress bar (default: TRUE)

Value

A list of whatever `fun` returned

Examples

if (FALSE) { # Run a simple multiplication for numbers 1 to 3 on a worker node fx = function(x) x * 2 Q(fx, x=1:3, n_jobs=1) # list(2,4,6) # Run a mutate() call in dplyr on a worker node iris %>% mutate(area = Q(`*`, e1=Sepal.Length, e2=Sepal.Width, n_jobs=1)) # iris with an additional column 'area' }
