uproot.source.chunk.Source

Defined in uproot.source.chunk on line 44.

class uproot.source.chunk.Source

Abstract class for physically reading and writing data from a file, which might be remote.

In addition to the file handle, a uproot.source.chunk.Source might manage a uproot.source.futures.ResourceThreadPoolExecutor to read the file in parallel. Stopping these threads is part of the act of closing the file.

chunk

Source.chunk(start: int, stop: int) Chunk
Parameters:
  • start (int) – Seek position of the first byte to include.

  • stop (int) – Seek position of the first byte to exclude (one greater than the last byte to include).

Request a byte range of data from the file as a uproot.source.chunk.Chunk.

chunks

Source.chunks(ranges: list[int, int], notifications: queue.Queue) list[Chunk]
Parameters:
  • ranges (list of (int, int) 2-tuples) – Intervals to fetch as (start, stop) pairs in a single request, if possible.

  • notifications (queue.Queue) – Indicator of completed chunks. After each gets filled, it is put on the queue; a listener should get from this queue len(ranges) times.

Request a set of byte ranges from the file.

This method has two outputs:

  • The method returns a list of unfilled uproot.source.chunk.Chunk objects, which get filled in a background thread. If you try to read data from an unfilled chunk, it will wait until it is filled.

  • The method also puts the same uproot.source.chunk.Chunk objects onto the notifications queue as soon as they are filled.

Reading data from chunks on the queue can be more efficient than reading them from the returned list. The total reading time is the same, but work on the filled chunks can be better parallelized if it is triggered by already-filled chunks, rather than waiting for chunks to be filled.

file_path

Source.file_path

A path to the file (or URL).

num_bytes

Source.num_bytes

The number of bytes in the file.

num_requests

Source.num_requests

The number of requests that have been made (performance counter).

num_requested_chunks

Source.num_requested_chunks

The number of uproot.source.chunk.Chunk objects that have been requested (performance counter).

num_requested_bytes

Source.num_requested_bytes

The number of bytes that have been requested (performance counter).

close

Source.close()

Manually closes the file(s) and stops any running threads.

closed

Source.closed

True if the associated file/connection/thread pool is closed; False otherwise.
