MutexLock with this mutex will wait.
This is particularly useful for creating a critical section when used in
mutex = mutex_v2( shared_name=handle_name, container=container, name=name) def execute_in_critical_section(fn, *args, **kwargs): lock = gen_resource_variable_ops.mutex_lock(mutex) with ops.control_dependencies([lock]): r = fn(*args, **kwargs) with ops.control_dependencies(nest.flatten(r)): with ops.colocate_with(mutex): ensure_lock_exists = mutex_lock_identity(lock) # Make sure that if any element of r is accessed, all of # them are executed together. r = nest.map_structure(tf.identity, r) with ops.control_dependencies([ensure_lock_exists]): return nest.map_structure(tf.identity, r)
fn is running in the critical section, no other functions which wish to
use this critical section may run.
Often the use case is that two executions of the same graph, in parallel,
wish to run
fn; and we wish to ensure that only one of them executes
at a time. This is especially important if
fn modifies one or more
variables at a time.
It is also useful if two separate functions must share a resource, but we wish to ensure the usage is exclusive.
