BaseProbe Parameters

List of parameters for the BaseProbe class

virtual void ioParam_message (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 message: A string parameter that is typically included in the lines output by the outputState method
 
virtual void ioParam_textOutputFlag (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 textOutputFlag: A boolean parameter that sets whether to generate an output file. Defaults to true.
 
virtual void ioParam_probeOutputFile (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 probeOutputFile: If textOutputFlag is true, probeOutputFile specifies the name of the file that the outputState method writes to. If blank, the output is sent to the output stream.
 
virtual void ioParam_triggerFlag (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 triggerFlag: If false, the needUpdate method always returns true, so that outputState is called every timestep. If true, the needUpdate method uses triggerLayerName and triggerOffset to determine if the probe should be triggered.
 
virtual void ioParam_triggerLayerName (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 triggerLayerName: If triggerFlag is true, triggerLayerName specifies the layer to check for triggering.
 
virtual void ioParam_triggerOffset (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 triggerOffset: If triggerFlag is true, triggerOffset specifies the time interval before the triggerLayer's nextUpdate time that needUpdate() returns true.
 
virtual void ioParam_energyProbe (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 energyProbe: If nonblank, specifies the name of a ColumnEnergyProbe that this probe contributes an energy term to.
 
virtual void ioParam_coefficient (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 coefficient: If energyProbe is set, the coefficient parameter specifies that ColumnEnergyProbe multiplies the result of this probe's getValues() method by coefficient when computing the error. More...
 

LayerProbe Parameters

List of parameters for the LayerProbe class

virtual void ioParam_targetName (enum ParamsIOFlag ioFlag)
 targetName: the name of the layer to attach the probe to. In LayerProbes, targetLayer can be used in the params file instead of targetName. LayerProbe looks for targetLayer first and then targetName.

Member Function Documentation

int PV::BaseProbe::allocateDataStructures ( )
virtualinherited

Called during HyPerCol::run, during the allocateDataStructures stage. BaseProbe::allocateDataStructures sets up the output stream. Derived classes that override this method should make sure to call this method in their own allocateDataStructures methods.

Reimplemented in PV::KernelProbe.

Definition at line 255 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

virtual int PV::BaseProbe::calcValues ( double  timevalue)
protectedpure virtualinherited

A pure virtual method to calculate the values of the probe. calcValues() can assume that needRecalc() has been called and returned true. It should write the computed values into the buffer of member variable 'probeValues'.

Implemented in PV::QuotientColProbe, PV::AbstractNormProbe, PV::ColumnEnergyProbe, PV::PointProbe, PV::StatsProbe, PV::L2NormProbe, PV::KernelProbe, and PV::PointLIFProbe.

int PV::LayerProbe::communicateInitInfo ( )
virtual

Called by HyPerCol::run. It calls BaseProbe::communicateInitInfo, then checks that the targetLayer/targetName parameter refers to a HyPerLayer in the parent HyPerCol, and then calls the layer's insertProbe method.

Implements PV::BaseProbe.

Reimplemented in PV::AbstractNormProbe, PV::FirmThresholdCostFnProbe, PV::FirmThresholdCostFnLCAProbe, PV::L0NormLCAProbe, PV::L1NormLCAProbe, and PV::PointProbe.

Definition at line 56 of file LayerProbe.cpp.

double PV::BaseProbe::getCoefficient ( )
inlineinherited

Returns the coefficient if the energy probe is set.

Definition at line 101 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

char const* PV::BaseProbe::getEnergyProbe ( )
inlineinherited

Returns the name of the energy probe the probe is attached to (null if not attached to an energy probe)

Definition at line 96 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

double PV::BaseProbe::getLastUpdateTime ( )
inlineprotectedinherited

Returns the time that calcValues was last called. BaseProbe updates the last update time in getValues() and getValue(), based on the result of needRecalc.

Definition at line 289 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

const char* PV::BaseProbe::getMessage ( )
inlineprotectedinherited

Returns a pointer to the message parameter.

Definition at line 244 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

int PV::BaseProbe::getNumValues ( )
inlineinherited

Returns the number of value indices the probe can compute (typically the value of the parent HyPerCol's nBatch parameter). BaseProbe::getNumValues() returns the parent HyPerCol's getNBatch(), which can be overridden. Probes derived from BaseProbe can set numValues to zero or a negative number to indicate that getValues() and getNumValues() are not fully implemented for that probe.

Definition at line 71 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

OutStream* PV::BaseProbe::getOutputStream ( )
inlineprotectedinherited

Returns a pointer to the OutStream used by outputState.

Definition at line 255 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

const char* PV::BaseProbe::getTargetName ( )
inlineinherited

Returns the name of the targetName parameter for this probe. LayerProbe uses targetName to specify the layer to attach to; BaseConnectionProbe uses it to specify the connection to attach to.

Definition at line 91 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

bool PV::BaseProbe::getTextOutputFlag ( ) const
inlineprotectedinherited

Returns the value of the textOutputFlag parameter

Definition at line 294 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

double PV::BaseProbe::getValue ( double  timevalue,
int  index 
)
inherited

getValue() is meant for situations where the caller needs one value that would be returned by getValues(), not the whole buffer. getValue() returns a signaling NaN if index is out of bounds. If index is valid, getValue() calls calcValues() if needRecalc() returns true, and then returns probeValues[index]. Derived classes should not override or hide this method. Instead, they should override calcValues.

Definition at line 343 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

int PV::BaseProbe::getValues ( double  timevalue,
double *  valuesVector 
)
inherited

getValues(double timevalue, double * values) sets the buffer 'values' with the probe's calculated values. It assumes that the values buffer is large enough to hold getNumValues() double-precision values. If 'values' is NULL, the values are still updated internally if needed, but those values are not returned. Internally, getValues() calls calcValues() if needRecalc() is true. It then copies the probeValues buffer to the input argument buffer 'values'. Derived classes should not override or hide this method. Instead, they should override calcValues.

Definition at line 330 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

int PV::BaseProbe::getValues ( double  timevalue,
std::vector< double > *  valuesVector 
)
inherited

getValues(double timevalue, vector<double> * valuesVector) is a wrapper around getValues(double, double *) that uses C++ vectors. It resizes valuesVector to size getNumValues() and then fills the vector with the values returned by getValues.

Definition at line 338 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

int PV::BaseProbe::getValues ( double  timevalue)
protectedinherited

If needRecalc() returns true, getValues(double) updates the probeValues buffer (by calling calcValues) and sets lastUpdateTime to the timevalue input argument.

Definition at line 319 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

double* PV::BaseProbe::getValuesBuffer ( )
inlineprotectedinherited

Returns a pointer to the buffer containing the probeValues.

Definition at line 282 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

int PV::LayerProbe::initialize ( const char *  probeName,
HyPerCol hc 
)
protected

Definition at line 41 of file LayerProbe.cpp.

int PV::BaseProbe::initMessage ( const char *  msg)
protectedvirtualinherited

The method called by BaseProbe::initialize() to set the message used by the probe's outputState method.

Definition at line 264 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

int PV::BaseProbe::initNumValues ( )
protectedvirtualinherited

initNumValues is called by initialize. BaseProbe::initNumValues sets numValues to the parent HyPerCol's getNBatch(). Derived classes can override initNumValues to initialize numValues to a different value.

Reimplemented in PV::PointProbe, PV::KernelProbe, PV::StatsProbe, and PV::PointLIFProbe.

Definition at line 197 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

void PV::BaseProbe::ioParam_coefficient ( enum ParamsIOFlag  ioFlag)
protectedvirtualinherited

coefficient: If energyProbe is set, the coefficient parameter specifies that ColumnEnergyProbe multiplies the result of this probe's getValues() method by coefficient when computing the error.

Note that coefficient does not affect the value returned by the getValue() or getValues() method.

Reimplemented in PV::FirmThresholdCostFnLCAProbe, PV::L0NormLCAProbe, and PV::L1NormLCAProbe.

Definition at line 107 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

bool PV::BaseProbe::isWritingToFile ( ) const
inlineprotectedinherited

Returns true if a probeOutputFile is being used. Otherwise, returns false (indicating output is going to getOutputStream().

Definition at line 300 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

bool PV::LayerProbe::needRecalc ( double  timevalue)
protectedvirtual

Implements the needRecalc method. Returns true if the target layer's getLastUpdateTime method is greater than the probe's lastUpdateTime member variable.

Implements PV::BaseProbe.

Reimplemented in PV::StatsProbe.

Definition at line 80 of file LayerProbe.cpp.

bool PV::BaseProbe::needUpdate ( double  time,
double  dt 
)
virtualinherited

If there is a triggering layer, needUpdate returns true when the triggering layer's nextUpdateTime, modified by the probe's triggerOffset parameter, occurs; otherwise false. If there is not a triggering layer, needUpdate always returns true. This behavior can be overridden if a probe uses some criterion other than triggering to choose when output its state.

Definition at line 291 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

std::ostream& PV::BaseProbe::output ( )
inlineprotectedinherited

Returns a reference to the ostream that outputState writes to.

Definition at line 260 of file BaseProbe.hpp.

virtual int PV::BaseProbe::outputState ( double  timef)
pure virtualinherited
int PV::BaseProbe::outputStateWrapper ( double  timef,
double  dt 
)
virtualinherited

The public interface for calling the outputState method. BaseConnection::outputStateWrapper calls outputState() if needUpdate() returns true. This behavior is intended to be general, but the method can be overridden if needed.

Definition at line 357 of file BaseProbe.cpp.

double PV::LayerProbe::referenceUpdateTime ( ) const
protectedvirtual

Implements the referenceUpdateTime method. Returns the last update time of the target layer.

Implements PV::BaseProbe.

Definition at line 84 of file LayerProbe.cpp.

int PV::BaseProbe::setNumValues ( int  n)
protectedinherited

Sets the numValues member variable (returned by getNumValues()) and reallocates the probeValues member variable to hold numValues double-precision values. If the reallocation fails, the probeValues buffer is left unchanged, errno is set (by a realloc() call), and PV_FAILURE is returned. Otherwise, PV_SUCCESS is returned.
