Subject [jira] [Commented] (REEF-1456) Develop distributed counters framework in REEF
Date Mon, 04 Jul 2016 06:30:11 GMT


Dhruv Mahajan commented on REEF-1456:

[~markus.weimer] [~anupam128] after offline discussion with [~anupam128], we sort of converged
that we will support {{ulong}} and {{double}} as the only types... They cover all the common
types (float, int, bool, byte, double, long). [~anupam128] was of the opinion that {{ulong}}
alone is sufficient and application/user can multiply double quantities (loss for example)
by {{10^n}} and then store in {{ulong}}. But I am of the opinion that this loss in precision
might be crucial for reporting some metrics related to ML especially if the user himself is
a ML person. So I have decided to go with both for the time being. Anyways, later if we want
to support only one, it should be a trivial change.

> The aim of this JIRA is to develop distributed counters framework in REEF. Each task
can emit pairs of {counter name, incremental value} which are aggregated and sent to driver,
which can then aggregate them from all the tasks/ evaluators. The aggregation strategy can
be simple addition, most recently used, etc.  Via these counters, we can implement some common
metrics for ML - like amount (bytes) of data read, current loss function value etc.
> We will develop interfaces for Counters for evaluators and driver along with default
implementations and aggregation strategies.
