Frequency#

class ignite.metrics.Frequency(output_transform=<function Frequency.<lambda>>, device=device(type='cpu'))[source]#

Provides metrics for the number of examples processed per second.

Examples

# Compute number of tokens processed
wps_metric = Frequency(output_transform=lambda x: x['ntokens'])
wps_metric.attach(trainer, name='wps')
# Logging with TQDM
ProgressBar(persist=True).attach(trainer, metric_names=['wps'])
# Progress bar will look like
# Epoch [2/10]: [12/24]  50%|█████      , wps=400 [00:17<1:23]

To compute examples processed per second every 50th iteration:

# Compute number of tokens processed
wps_metric = Frequency(output_transform=lambda x: x['ntokens'])
wps_metric.attach(trainer, name='wps', event_name=Events.ITERATION_COMPLETED(every=50))
# Logging with TQDM
ProgressBar(persist=True).attach(trainer, metric_names=['wps'])
# Progress bar will look like
# Epoch [2/10]: [50/100]  50%|█████      , wps=400 [00:17<00:35]

Methods

attach

Attaches current metric to provided engine.

completed

Helper method to compute metric's value and put into the engine.

compute

Computes the metric based on it's accumulated state.

reset

Resets the metric to it's initial state.

update

Updates the metric's state using the passed batch output.

Parameters
Return type

None

attach(engine, name, event_name=Events.ITERATION_COMPLETED)[source]#

Attaches current metric to provided engine. On the end of engine’s run, engine.state.metrics dictionary will contain computed metric’s value under provided name.

Parameters
Return type

None

Examples

metric = ...
metric.attach(engine, "mymetric")

assert "mymetric" in engine.run(data).metrics

assert metric.is_attached(engine)

Example with usage:

metric = ...
metric.attach(engine, "mymetric", usage=BatchWise.usage_name)

assert "mymetric" in engine.run(data).metrics

assert metric.is_attached(engine, usage=BatchWise.usage_name)
completed(engine, name)[source]#

Helper method to compute metric’s value and put into the engine. It is automatically attached to the engine with attach(). If metrics’ value is torch tensor, it is explicitly sent to CPU device.

Parameters
  • engine (ignite.engine.engine.Engine) – the engine to which the metric must be attached

  • name (str) – the name of the metric used as key in dict engine.state.metrics

Return type

None

Changed in version 0.4.3: Added dict in metrics results.

Changed in version 0.4.5: metric’s value is put on CPU if torch tensor.

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 when completed() is called.

Return type

Any

Raises

NotComputableError – raised when the metric cannot be computed.

reset()[source]#

Resets the metric to it’s initial state.

By default, this is called at the start of each epoch.

Return type

None

update(output)[source]#

Updates the metric’s state using the passed batch output.

By default, this is called once for each batch.

Parameters

output (int) – the is the output from the engine’s process function.

Return type

None
