DataLoader

class paddle.fluid.io.DataLoader[源代码]
from_generator(feed_list=None, capacity=None, use_double_buffer=True, iterable=True, return_list=False)

创建一个DataLoader对象用于加载Python生成器产生的数据。数据会由Python线程预先读取,并异步送入一个队列中。

本方法创建的DataLoader对象提供了3个方法设置数据源,分别是 set_sample_generator , set_sample_list_generatorset_batch_generator 。请查阅下述示例代码了解它们的使用方法。

如果iterable = True,本方法创建的DataLoader对象时一个Python生成器,可以for-range的方法循环迭代。

如果iterable = False,本方法创建的DataLoader对象提供 start()reset() 方法控制数据读取过程。此模式用于兼容 fluid.layers.py_reader 的使用方式。用户可使用iterable = False模式,方便地将 fluid.layers.py_reader 的代码迁移至 fluid.io.DataLoader

参数:
  • feed_list (list(Variable)|tuple(Variable)) - feed变量列表,由 fluid.layers.data() 创建。
  • capacity (int) - DataLoader对象内部维护队列的容量大小。单位是batch数量。若reader读取速度较快,建议设置较大的capacity值。
  • use_double_buffer (bool) - 是否使用 double_buffer_reader 。若use_double_buffer=True,DataLoader会异步地预读取下一个batch的数据,可加速数据读取过程,但同时会占用少量的CPU/GPU存储,即一个batch输入数据的存储空间。
  • iterable (bool) - 所创建的DataLoader对象是否可迭代。
  • return_list (bool) - 每个设备上的数据是否以list形式返回。仅在iterable = True模式下有效。若return_list = False,每个设备上的返回数据均是str -> LoDTensor的映射表,其中映射表的key是每个输入变量的名称。若return_list = True,则每个设备上的返回数据均是list(LoDTensor)。推荐在静态图模式下使用return_list = False,在动态图模式下使用return_list = True。

返回: 被创建的DataLoader对象

返回类型: loader (DataLoader)
