madoka 0.5

Memory-efficient CountMin Sketch key-value structure (based on Madoka C++ library)

Latest Version: 0.6

madoka

Madoka is an implementation of a Count-Min sketch data structure for summarizing data streams.

String-int pairs in a Madoka-Sketch may take less memory than in a standard Python dict.

Based on madoka C++ library.

NOTE: Madoka-Sketch does not have index of keys. so Madoka-Sketch can not dump all keys such as Python dict’s dict.keys().

Installation

$ pip install madoka

Class

Madoka has some classes having same interface. So you can choose for your purpose.

For example, if you wants to count float data, it’s preferable to choose CroquisFloat class or CroquisDouble class.

  • Sketch - storing unsigned long long (64bit) and fast implementation
  • CroquisFloat - storing float (32bit)
  • CroquisDouble - storing double (64bit)
  • CroquisUint8 - storing unsigned char (8bit)
  • CroquisUint16 - storing unsigned short (16bit)
  • CroquisUint32 - storing unsigned int (32bit)
  • CroquisUint64 - storing unsigned long long (64bit)

Usage

I will describe about Sketch class. You can use other classes by the same way as Sketch class. In that case, you should replace to intended class from “Sketch”.

Create a new sketch

>>> import madoka
>>> sketch = madoka.Sketch()
  • Sketch madoka.Sketch([width=0, max_value=0, path=”, flags=0, seed=0])
    • madoka.Sketch() calls madoka.Sketch.create(), so you don’t have to explicitly call create()

Increment a key value

>>> sketch['mami'] += 1

or

>>> sketch.inc('mami')
  • int inc(key[, key_length=0])
    • Note that key_length is automatically determined when not giving key_length. Thus, the order of parameters differs from original madoka C++ library.

Add a value to the current key value

>>> sketch['mami'] += 6

or

>>> sketch.add('mami', 6)
  • int add(key, value[, key_length=0])
    • Note that key_length is automatically determined when not giving key_length. Thus, the order of parameters differs from original madoka C++ library.

Update a key value

>>> sketch['mami'] = 6

or

>>> sketch.set('mami', 6)
  • void set(key, value[, key_length=0])
    • Note that set() does nothing when the given value is not greater than the current key value.
    • Also note that the new value is saturated when the given value is greater than the upper limit.
    • Additionally note that key_length is automatically determined when not giving key_length. Thus, the order of parameters differs from original madoka C++ library.

Get a key value

>>> sketch['mami']

or

>>> sketch.get('mami')
  • int get(key[, key_length=0])
    • Note that key_length is automatically determined when not giving key_length. Thus, the order of parameters differs from original madoka C++ library.

Get all values

>>> sketch.values()
  • generator<int> values()
    • Note that processing time increases according to sketch’s width. If you feel slow, I recommend setting width to less than 1000000 when creating sketch.

Save a sketch to a file

>>> sketch.save('example.madoka')
  • void save(filename)

Load a sketch from a file

>>> sketch.load('example.madoka')
  • void load(filename)

Clear a sketch

>>> sketch.clear()
  • void clear()
    • Delete all key-value pairs. It differs from create() in maintaining current settings.

Initialize a sketch with settings change

>>> sketch.create()
  • void create([width=0, max_value=0, path=NULL, flags=0, seed=0])

Copy a sketch

>>> sketch.copy(othersketch)
  • void copy(Sketch)

Merge two sketches

>>> sketch += other_sketch

or

>>> sketch.merge(othersketch)
  • void merge(Sketch[, lhs_filter=None, rhs_filter=None])
    • lhs_filter is applied for self.sketch, rhs_filter is applied for given sketch

Shrink a sketch

>>> sketch.shrink(sketch, width=1000)
  • void shrink(Sketch[, width=0, max_value=0, filter=None, path=None, flags=0])
    • When width > 0, width must be less than source sketch

Get summed sketch

>>> summed_sketch = sketch + other_sketch
  • It does not break original sketches

Check whether sketch contains key value

>>> 'mami' in sketch

Get inner product of two sketches

>>> sketch.inner_product(other_sketch)
  • float inner_product(Sketch[, length=False])
    • If length is True, then inner_product method returns inner product, square length of left hands sketch (float), and square length of right hands sketch (float)

Apply filter into all values

>>> sketch.filter(lambda x: x + 1)
  • void filter(Callable[, only_nonzero=False])
    • Note that processing time increases according to sketch’s width. If you feel this method is slow, I recommend setting width to less than 1000000 when creating sketch

Set values from dict

>>> sketch.fromdict({'mami': 14, 'madoka': 13})
  • void fromdict(dict)

TODO

  • Implement getting sketch length on inner_product method
