keys

Return all keys of ValueStore or FileStore object

Description

example

keySet = keys(store) returns a string array containing all the keys in the ValueStore or FileStore object store.

Examples

collapse all

Run a simulation on workers and retrieve the data storage of the job on a client. The data storage is a ValueStore object with key-value entries. Show the keys of this object.

The following simulation finds the inverse of random matrices and stores the results in the ValueStore object.

type workerInvCode
function workerInvCode(models)
% Get the ValueStore of the current job
store = getCurrentValueStore;
for i = 1:numel(models)
    % Store simulation results in the ValueStore object
    pause(1);
    key = strcat("result_",num2str(i));
    store(key) = inv(rand(models(i)));
end
end

Run a batch job on workers using the default cluster profile.

models = [4,8,32,20];
c = parcluster;
job = batch(c,@workerInvCode,0,{models});
wait(job);

Retrieve the ValueStore object on the client.

store = job.ValueStore;

Return a string array containing its keys.

keySet = keys(store)
keySet = 4×1 string
    "result_1"
    "result_2"
    "result_3"
    "result_4"

Run a simulation on a parallel pool of process workers and retrieve the file storage on a client. The file storage is a FileStore object with key-file entries. Show the keys of this object.

The following simulation finds the average and standard deviation of random matrices and stores the results in the FileStore object.

type workerStatsCode
function workerStatsCode(models)
% Get the FileStore of the current job
store = getCurrentFileStore;
for i = 1:numel(models)
    % Compute the average and standard deviation of random matrices
    A = rand(models(i));
    M = mean(A);
    S = std(A);
    % Save simulation results in temporary files
    sourceTempFile = strcat(tempname("C:\myTempFolder"),".mat");
    save(sourceTempFile,"M","S");
    % Copy files to FileStore object as key-file pairs
    key = strcat("result_",num2str(i));
    copyFileToStore(store,sourceTempFile,key);
end
end

Start a parallel pool of process workers.

pool = parpool('Processes');
Starting parallel pool (parpool) using the 'Processes' profile ...
Connected to the parallel pool (number of workers: 6).

Get the FileStore for this pool.

store = pool.FileStore;

Run the simulation on the pool.

models = [4,8,32,20];
future = parfeval(@workerStatsCode,0,models);
wait(future);

Show the keys of the FileStore object.

keys(store)

Input Arguments
