EpochMetric#
- class ignite.metrics.EpochMetric(compute_fn, output_transform=<function EpochMetric.<lambda>>, check_compute_fn=True, device=device(type='cpu'))[source]#
Class for metrics that should be computed on the entire output history of a model. Model’s output and targets are restricted to be of shape
(batch_size, n_targets)
. Output datatype should be float32. Target datatype should be long for classification and float for regression.Warning
Current implementation stores all input data (output and target) in as tensors before computing a metric. This can potentially lead to a memory error if the input data is larger than available RAM.
In distributed configuration, all stored data (output and target) is mutually collected across all processes using all gather collective operation. This can potentially lead to a memory error. Compute method executes
compute_fn
on zero rank process only and final result is broadcasted to all processes.update
must receive output of the form(y_pred, y)
or{'y_pred': y_pred, 'y': y}
.
- Parameters
compute_fn (Callable) – a callable with the signature (torch.tensor, torch.tensor) takes as the input predictions and targets and returns a scalar. Input tensors will be on specified
device
(see arg below).output_transform (Callable) – a callable that is used to transform the
Engine
’sprocess_function
’s output into the form expected by the metric. This can be useful if, for example, you have a multi-output model and you want to compute the metric with respect to one of the outputs.check_compute_fn (bool) – if True,
compute_fn
is run on the first batch of data to ensure there are no issues. If issues exist, user is warned that there might be an issue with thecompute_fn
. Default, True.device (Union[str, device]) – optional device specification for internal storage.
Warning
EpochMetricWarning: User is warned that there are issues with
compute_fn
on a batch of data processed. To disable the warning, setcheck_compute_fn=False
.Methods
Computes the metric based on it's accumulated state.
Resets the metric to it's initial state.
Updates the metric's state using the passed batch output.
- compute()[source]#
Computes the metric based on it’s accumulated state.
By default, this is called at the end of each epoch.
- Returns
- the actual quantity of interest. However, if a
Mapping
is returned, it will be (shallow) flattened into engine.state.metrics whencompleted()
is called. - Return type
Any
- Raises
NotComputableError – raised when the metric cannot be computed.
