# aiida.engine.processes.calcjobs package¶

Module for the CalcJob process and related utilities.

class aiida.engine.processes.calcjobs.CalcJob(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Implementation of the CalcJob process.

_Process__called = True
__abstractmethods__ = frozenset({})
__init__(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Construct a CalcJob instance.

Construct the instance only if it is a sub class of CalcJob, otherwise raise InvalidOperation.

See documentation of aiida.engine.Process.

_abc_impl = <_abc_data object>
_node_class
_spec = <aiida.engine.processes.process_spec.CalcJobProcessSpec object>
_spec_class
classmethod define(spec: aiida.engine.processes.process_spec.CalcJobProcessSpec)[source]

Define the process specification, including its inputs, outputs and known exit codes.

Parameters

spec – the calculation job process spec to define.

classmethod get_state_classes()[source]
on_terminated()[source]

Cleanup the node by deleting the calulation job state.

Note

This has to be done before calling the super because that will seal the node after we cannot change it

property options

Return the options of the metadata that were specified when this process instance was launched.

Returns

options dictionary

Return type

dict

parse(retrieved_temporary_folder=None)[source]

Parse a retrieved job calculation.

This is called once it’s finished waiting for the calculation to be finished and the data has been retrieved.

prepare_for_submission(folder: aiida.common.folders.Folder) → aiida.common.datastructures.CalcInfo[source]

Prepare the calculation for submission.

Convert the input nodes into the corresponding input files in the format that the code will expect. In addition, define and return a CalcInfo instance, which is a simple data structure that contains information for the engine, for example, on what files to copy to the remote machine, what files to retrieve once it has completed, specific scheduler settings and more.

Parameters

folder – a temporary folder on the local file system.

Returns

the CalcInfo instance

presubmit(folder)[source]

Prepares the calculation folder with all inputs, ready to be copied to the cluster.

Parameters

folder (aiida.common.folders.Folder) – a SandboxFolder that can be used to write calculation input files and the scheduling script.

Return calcinfo

the CalcInfo object containing the information needed by the daemon to handle operations.

Rtype calcinfo

aiida.common.CalcInfo

run()[source]

Run the calculation job.

This means invoking the presubmit and storing the temporary folder in the node’s repository. Then we move the process in the Wait state, waiting for the UPLOAD transport task to be started.

spec_options = <aiida.engine.processes.ports.PortNamespace object>

Module containing utilities and classes relating to job calculations running on systems that require transport.

class aiida.engine.processes.calcjobs.manager.JobsList(authinfo, transport_queue, last_updated=None)[source]

Bases: object

Manager of calculation jobs submitted with a specific AuthInfo, i.e. computer configured for a specific user.

This container of active calculation jobs is used to update their status periodically in batches, ensuring that even when a lot of jobs are running, the scheduler update command is not triggered for each job individually.

In addition, the Computer for which the AuthInfo is configured, can define a minimum polling interval. This class will guarantee that the time between update calls to the scheduler is larger or equal to that minimum interval.

Note that since each instance operates on a specific authinfo, the guarantees of batching scheduler update calls and the limiting of number of calls per unit time, through the minimum polling interval, is only applicable for jobs launched with that particular authinfo. If multiple authinfo instances with the same computer, have active jobs these limitations are not respected between them, since there is no communication between JobsList instances. See the JobManager for example usage.

class aiida.engine.processes.calcjobs.manager.JobManager(transport_queue)[source]

Bases: object

A manager for CalcJob submitted to Computer instances.

When a calculation job is submitted to a Computer, it actually uses a specific AuthInfo, which is a computer configured for a User. The JobManager maintains a mapping of JobsList instances for each authinfo that has active calculation jobs. These jobslist instances are then responsible for bundling scheduler updates for all the jobs they maintain (i.e. that all share the same authinfo) and update their status.

As long as a Runner will create a single JobManager instance and use that for its lifetime, the guarantees made by the JobsList about respecting the minimum polling interval of the scheduler will be maintained. Note, however, that since each Runner will create its own job manager, these guarantees only hold per runner.

aiida.engine.processes.calcjobs.tasks.task_kill_job(node, transport_queue, cancellable)[source]

Transport task that will attempt to kill a job calculation.

The task will first request a transport from the queue. Once the transport is yielded, the relevant execmanager function is called, wrapped in the exponential_backoff_retry coroutine, which, in case of a caught exception, will retry after an interval that increases exponentially with the number of retries, for a maximum number of retries. If all retries fail, the task will raise a TransportTaskException

Parameters
• node – the node that represents the job calculation

• transport_queue – the TransportQueue from which to request a Transport

• cancellable (aiida.engine.utils.InterruptableFuture) – the cancelled flag that will be queried to determine whether the task was cancelled

Raises

Return if the tasks was successfully completed

Raises

TransportTaskException if after the maximum number of retries the transport task still excepted
