ParallelLogger is part of HADES.

Introduction

Support for parallel computation with progress bar, and option to stop or proceed on errors. Also provides logging to console and disk, and the logging persists in the parallel threads. Additional functions support function call automation with delayed execution (e.g. for executing functions in parallel).

Features

  • Functions for parallel computation.
  • Functions for logging, including automated logging for errors and warnings.
  • Functions used for automating analyses.

Examples

# Run a function in parallel:
fun <- function(x) {
  return (x^2)
}

cluster <- makeCluster(numberOfThreads = 3)
result <- clusterApply(cluster, 1:10, fun)
stopCluster(cluster)

# Create a file logger:
addDefaultFileLogger("log.txt")
logTrace("Hello world")
