[docs]class Experiment: """Represents an entry in database/experiments collection. Attributes ---------- name : str Unique identifier for this experiment per ``user``. id: object id of the experiment in the database if experiment is configured. Value is ``None`` if the experiment is not configured. refers : dict or list of `Experiment` objects, after initialization is done. A dictionary pointing to a past `Experiment` id, ``refers[parent_id]``, whose trials we want to add in the history of completed trials we want to re-use. For convenience and database effiency purpose, all experiments of a common tree shares ``refers[root_id]``, with the root experiment refering to itself. version: int Current version of this experiment. metadata : dict Contains managerial information about this `Experiment`. max_trials : int How many trials must be evaluated, before considering this `Experiment` done. This attribute can be updated if the rest of the experiment configuration is the same. In that case, if trying to set to an already set experiment, it will overwrite the previous one. max_broken: int How many trials must be broken, before considering this `Experiment` broken. This attribute can be updated if the rest of the experiment configuration is the same. In that case, if trying to set to an already set experiment, it will overwrite the previous one. space: Space Object representing the optimization space. algorithms : `BaseAlgorithm` object or a wrapper. Complete specification of the optimization and dynamical procedures taking place in this `Experiment`. Metadata -------- user : str System user currently owning this running process, the one who invoked **Oríon**. datetime : `datetime.datetime` When was this particular configuration submitted to the database. orion_version : str Version of **Oríon** which suggested this experiment. `user`'s current **Oríon** version. user_script : str Full absolute path to `user`'s executable. user_args : list of str Contains separate arguments to be passed when invoking `user_script`, possibly templated for **Oríon**. user_vcs : str, optional User's version control system for this executable's code repository. user_version : str, optional Current user's repository version. user_commit_hash : str, optional Current `Experiment`'s commit hash for **Oríon**'s invocation.
