0001 classdef StoreDB < handle_light 0002 % The StoreDB class is a handle class to manage caching in Manopt. 0003 % 0004 % To create an object, call: storedb = StoreDB(); 0005 % Alternatively, call: storedb = StoreDB(storedepth); to instruct 0006 % the database to keep at most storedepth stores in its history. 0007 % (Note that clean up only happens when purge() is called). 0008 % 0009 % The storedb object is passed by reference: when it is passed to a 0010 % function as an input, and that function modifies it, the original 0011 % object is modified. 0012 0013 % This file is part of Manopt: www.manopt.org. 0014 % Original author: Nicolas Boumal, April 3, 2015. 0015 % Contributors: 0016 % Change log: 0017 % 0018 % Aug. 2, 2018 (NB) 0019 % Purge now selects based on time since last access, whether read or 0020 % write. It used to select based on last write. This should allow to 0021 % set a smaller value of storedepth for trustregions (in particular). 0022 % Also added StoreDB.remove(key) which allows to specifically remove 0023 % the store associated to a key. This can be used by a solver when it 0024 % is reasonably certain that the memory associated to a certain key 0025 % is no longer needed (for example, when a step was rejected in 0026 % trustregions or in a line-search algorithm.) Proper usage of this 0027 % feature should allow to set a small value for storedepth. 0028 % Furthermore, getNewKey() now places an empty store at the created 0029 % key. As a result, it is no longer legitimate to call storedb.get on 0030 % an unknown key: this now issues a warning, which should help debug. 0031 % The function removefirstifdifferent(key1, key2) only removes key1 0032 % if it is different from key2, which is helpful when an iteration 0033 % may have failed to move to a distinct point. 0034 0035 % TODO : protect get/setWithShared calls: limit to one, and forbid access 0036 % to shared memory while it has not been returned. 0037 % Do think of the applyStatsFun case : calls a getWithShared, does 0038 % not need a setWithShared. I think for statsfun there should be a 0039 % method "forfeitWithShared". 0040 0041 properties(Access = public) 0042 0043 % This memory is meant to be shared at all times.
