Indica se questo IDataView supporta il shuffling delle righe in qualsiasi livello.


Ottiene un'istanza dello schema.



Restituisce il numero di righe, se noto. La restituzione di null indica che il conteggio delle righe è sconosciuto, ma potrebbe restituire un valore non null in una chiamata successiva. Ciò indica che la trasformazione non conosce ancora il numero di righe, ma potrebbe in futuro. La complessità di calcolo dell'implementazione deve essere O (1).

La maggior parte dell'implementazione restituirà la stessa risposta ogni volta. Alcuni, ad esempio una cache, potrebbero restituire null finché la cache non viene popolata completamente.

GetRowCursor(IEnumerable<DataViewSchema.Column>, Random)

Ottiene un cursore di riga. columnsNeededIndica le colonne attive necessarie per eseguire l'iterazione. Se è impostato su un oggetto vuoto IEnumerable , non viene richiesta alcuna colonna. Lo schema del cursore restituito sarà lo stesso dello schema di IDataView, ma verrà generata un'eccezione per ottenere un getter per le colonne inattive.

GetRowCursorSet(IEnumerable<DataViewSchema.Column>, Int32, Random)

In questo costrutto viene creato un set di cursori batch paralleli. Il valore n è un limite consigliato per la cardinalità. Se n è non positivo, indica che il chiamante non ha alcuna raccomandazione e che l'implementazione deve avere un comportamento predefinito per coprire questo caso. Si noti che questa è esclusivamente una raccomandazione: è possibile che un'implementazione possa restituire un numero diverso di cursori.

I cursori devono restituire gli stessi dati restituiti tramite GetRowCursor(IEnumerable<DataViewSchema.Column>, Random) , ad eccezione del partizionato: due cursori non devono restituire la "stessa" riga restituita tramite il normale cursore seriale, ma tutte le righe devono essere restituite esattamente da uno dei cursori restituiti dal cursore. I valori dei cursori possono essere riconciliati a valle tramite l'utilizzo della Batch Proprietà.

Il modello di utilizzo tipico è che viene richiesto un set di cursori, ognuno di essi viene quindi assegnato a un set di thread di lavoro che utilizzano da loro in modo indipendente, mentre, infine, i risultati vengono infine confrontati in base alla fine sfruttando l'ordine della Batch proprietà descritta in precedenza. Scenari più tipici saranno contenuti con il pull dal cursore seriale singolo di GetRowCursor(IEnumerable<DataViewSchema.Column>, Random) .
