# magni.utils.multiprocessing._config module¶

Module providing configuration options for the multiprocessing subpackage.

magni.utils.config.Configger
The Configger class used

Notes

This module instantiates the Configger class provided by magni.utils.config. The configuration options are the following:

max_broken_pool_restarts : int or None
The maximum number of attempts at restarting the process pool upon a BrokenPoolError (the default is 0, which implies that the process pool may not be restarted). If set to None, the process pool may restart indefinitely.
prefer_futures : bool
The indicator of whether or not to prefer the concurrent.futures module over the multiprocessing module (the default is False, which implies that the multiprocessing module is used).
re_raise_exceptions : bool
A flag indicating if exceptions should be re-raised (the default is False, which implies that the exception are not re-raised). It is useful to set this to True if the processing pool supports proper exception handling as e.g. when using “futures”.
silence_exceptions : bool
A flag indicating if exceptions should be silenced (the default is False, which implies that exceptions are raised).
workers : int
The number of workers to use for multiprocessing (the default is 0, which implies no multiprocessing).

See the notes for the magni.utils.multiprocessing._processing.process function for more details about the prefer_futures and max_broken_pool_restarts configuration parameters.
