Class ReductionToOneDevice

Always do reduction to one device first and then do broadcasting.

Inherits From: CrossDeviceOps

Aliases:

  • Class tf.compat.v1.distribute.ReductionToOneDevice
  • Class tf.compat.v2.distribute.ReductionToOneDevice

Batch reduction is done by reduction on each element one by one.

__init__

View source

__init__(
    reduce_to_device=None,
    accumulation_fn=None
)

Constructor.

Args:

  • reduce_to_device: the intermediate device to reduce to. If None, reduce to the first device in destinations of the reduce() method.
  • accumulation_fn: a function that does accumulation. If None, then tf.math.add_n is used.

Methods

batch_reduce

View source

batch_reduce(
    reduce_op,
    value_destination_pairs
)

Reduce PerReplica objects in a batch.

Reduce each first element in value_destination_pairs to each second element which indicates the destinations.

Args:

  • reduce_op: Indicates how per_replica_value will be reduced. Accepted values are tf.distribute.ReduceOp.SUM, tf.distribute.ReduceOp.MEAN.
  • value_destination_pairs: a list or a tuple of tuples of PerReplica objects (or tensors with device set if there is one device) and destinations.

Returns:

a list of Mirrored objects.

Raises:

  • ValueError: if value_destination_pairs is not a list or a tuple of tuples of PerReplica objects and destinations

broadcast

View source

broadcast(
    tensor,
    destinations
)

Broadcast the tensor to destinations.

Args:

  • tensor: the tensor to broadcast.
  • destinations: the broadcast destinations.

Returns:

a Mirrored object.

reduce

View source

reduce(
    reduce_op,
    per_replica_value,
    destinations
)

Reduce per_replica_value to destinations.

It runs the reduction operation defined by reduce_op and put the result on destinations.

Args:

Returns:

a Mirrored object.

Raises:

  • ValueError: if per_replica_value can't be converted to a PerReplica object.
