Using cloudknot to perform matrix-vector multiplication of random matrices

This example uses cloudknot to perform matrix-vector multiplication of some random matrices with varying standard deviations.

In [1]:
import cloudknot as ck

First, we write the python script that we want to run on AWS batch. Note that we import the necessary python packages within the function random_mv_prod.

In [2]:
def random_mv_prod(b):
    import numpy as np
    x = np.random.normal(0, b, 1024)
    A = np.random.normal(0, b, (1024, 1024))
    return, x)

Create a knot using the random_mv_prod function and a job definition memory of 128 MiB.

In [3]:
knot = ck.Knot(name='random_mv_prod', func=random_mv_prod, memory=128, retries=3)

Submit 20 batch jobs to the knot. The map() method returns a list of futures for the results of each batch job. You can optionally supply a list of environment variables to each job.

In [5]:
# import numpy since it was only imported in the `random_mv_prod` function above
import numpy as np
In [4]:
# Submit the jobs
result_futures =, 100, 20), env_vars=[{'name': 'MY_ENV_VAR', 'value': 'foo'}])

We can query the jobs associated with this knot by calling knot.view_jobs(), prints a bunch of job info and provides a consice summary of job statuses.

In [15]:
# Rerun this cell as often as you like to update your job status info

We can also inspect each BatchJob instance by looking at which returns a list of BatchJob instances for each submitted job, e.g.:

In [16]:
last_job =[-1]
In [8]:
CKTimeoutError                            Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-8-eedc99836a06> in <module>()
      1 print(last_job.done)
----> 2 print(last_job.result(timeout=5))

/Users/Adam/code/projects/cloudknot/cloudknot/aws/ in result(self, timeout)
   1812         if not self.done:
-> 1813             raise CKTimeoutError(self.job_id)
   1815         status = self.status

CKTimeoutError: The job with job-id b873b0b5-4bdc-46b4-91f5-b6e6266f56b2 did not finish within the requested timeout period returns a list of futures so you can use any of the futures methods to query the results, e.g. done() or result().

Once you're all done, clobber the knot, including the underlying PARS and the remote repo.

In [19]:
knot.clobber(clobber_pars=True, clobber_repo=True, clobber_image=True) dependent EC2 instances: ['i-0bdc8d35ac1cbbd43']
