class spinn_machine.ignores.IgnoreChip(x, y, ip_address=None)[source]

Bases: object

Represents a chip to be ignored when building a machine. This is typically because it has a fault in the SpiNNaker router.

Parameters:
  • x (int or str) – X coordinate of a Chip to ignore
  • y (int or str) – Y coordinate of a Chip to ignore
  • ip_address (str or None) – Optional IP address which, if provided, make x and y local coordinates
ip_address

IP address of the board with the chip; if not None, the coordinates are local to that board

static parse_single_string(downed_chip)[source]

Converts a string into an IgnoreChip object

The supported format is:

<down_chip_id> = <chip_x>,<chip_y>[,<ip>]

where:

  • <chip_x> is the x-coordinate of a down chip
  • <chip_x> is the y-coordinate of a down chip
  • <ip> is an optional IP address in the 127.0.0.0 format. If provided, the <chip_x>,<chip_y> will be considered local to the board with this IP address.

Two examples:

4,7
6,5,10.11.12.13
Parameters:downed_chip (str) – representation of one chip to ignore
Returns:An IgnoreChip Object
Return type:IgnoreChip
static parse_string(downed_chips)[source]

Converts a string into a (possibly empty) set of IgnoreChip objects

format is:

down_chips = <down_chip_id>[:<down_chip_id]*
<down_chip_id> = <chip_x>,<chip_y>[,<ip>]

where:

  • <chip_x> is the x-coordinate of a down chip
  • <chip_y> is the y-coordinate of a down chip
  • <ip> is an optional* IP address in the 127.0.0.0 format. If provided, the <chip_x>,<chip_y> will be considered local to the board with this IP address.

The string None (case-insensitive) is used to represent no ignores

An example:

4,7:6,5,10.11.12.13
Parameters:downed_chips (str) – representation of zero or chips to ignore
Returns:Set (possibly empty) of IgnoreChips
Return type:set(IgnoreChip)
x

X coordinate of the chip to ignore

y

Y coordinate of the chip to ignore

class spinn_machine.ignores.IgnoreCore(x, y, p, ip_address=None)[source]

Bases: object

Represents a core to be ignored when building a machine.

Parameters:
  • x (int or str) – X coordinate of a core to ignore
  • y (int or str) – Y coordinate of a core to ignore
  • p (int or str) – P The virtual core ID of a core if > 0, or the physical core if <= 0 (actual value will be negated)
  • ip_address (str or None) – Optional IP address which, if provided, make x and y local coordinates
ip_address

IP address of the board with the chip; if not None, the coordinates are local to that board

p

Core ID of the processor to ignore (virtual if positive, physical if negative)

static parse_single_string(downed_core)[source]

Converts a string into an IgnoreCore object

The format is:

<down_core> = <chip_x>,<chip_y>,<core_id>[,<ip>]

where:

  • <chip_x> is the x-coordinate of a down chip
  • <chip_x> is the y-coordinate of a down chip
  • <core_id> is the virtual core ID of a core if > 0, or the physical core if <= 0 (actual value will be negated)
  • <ip> is an optional IP address in the 127.0.0.0 format. If provided, the <chip_x>,<chip_y> will be considered local to the board with this IP address

Two examples:

4,7,3
6,5,-2,10.11.12.13
Parameters:downed_core (str) – representation of one chip to ignore
Returns:An IgnoreCore object
Return type:IgnoreCore
static parse_string(downed_cores)[source]

Converts a string into a (possibly empty) set of IgnoreCore objects

The format is:

down_cores = <down_core_id>[:<down_core_id]* <down_core_id> = <chip_x>,<chip_y>[,<ip>]

where:

  • <chip_x> is the x-coordinate of a down chip
  • <chip_x> is the y-coordinate of a down chip
  • <core_id> is the virtual core ID of a core if > 0, or the physical core if <= 0 (actual value will be negated)
  • <ip> is an optional IP address in the 127.0.0.0 format. If provided, the <chip_x>,<chip_y> will be considered local to the board with this IP address.

The string None (case insensitive) is used to represent no ignores

An example:

4,7,3:6,5,-2,10.11.12.13
Parameters:downed_cores (str) – representation of zero or chips to ignore
Returns:Set (possibly empty) of IgnoreCores
Return type:set(IgnoreCore)
virtual_p

The virtual processor ID.

When the processor is given as a physical processor, this is converted to a virtual core ID using the typical virtual/physical core map; the mapping in a real machine may be different!

x

X coordinate of the chip with the processor to ignore

y

Y coordinate of the chip with the processor to ignore

Bases: object

Represents a link that should be ignored when building a machine.

Parameters:
  • x (int or str) – X coordinate of a chip with a link to ignore
  • y (int or str) – Y coorridate of a chip with a link to ignore
  • link (int or str) – ID of the link to ignore
  • ip_address (str or None) – Optional IP address which, if provided, makes x and y be local coordinates
ip_address

IP address of the board with the chip; if not None, the coordinates are local to that board

Link ID to ignore

  • <chip_x> is the y-coordinate of a down chip
  • <link_id> is the link ID
  • <ip> is an optional IP address in the 127.0.0.0 format. If provided, the <chip_x>,<chip_y> will be considered local to the board with this IP address.

where:

  • <chip_x> is the x-coordinate of a down chip
  • <chip_x> is the y-coordinate of a down chip
  • <link_id> is the link ID
  • <ip> is an optional IP address in the 127.0.0.0 format. If provided, the <chip_x>,<chip_y> will be considered local to the board with this IP address
