ActorPool.map_unordered(fn: Callable[[ActorHandle, V], Any], values: List[V])[source]#

Similar to map(), but returning an unordered iterator.

This returns an unordered iterator that will return results of the map as they finish. This can be more efficient that map() if some results take longer to compute than others.

  • fn – Function that takes (actor, value) as argument and returns an ObjectRef computing the result over the value. The actor will be considered busy until the ObjectRef completes.

  • values – List of values that fn(actor, value) should be applied to.


Iterator over results from applying fn to the actors and values.
