[docs]def call_experiment(exp_name, thunk, seed=0, num_cpu=1, data_dir=None, datestamp=False, **kwargs): """ Run a function (thunk) with hyperparameters (kwargs), plus configuration. This wraps a few pieces of functionality which are useful when you want to run many experiments in sequence, including logger configuration and splitting into multiple processes for MPI. There's also a SpinningUp-specific convenience added into executing the thunk: if ``env_name`` is one of the kwargs passed to call_experiment, it's assumed that the thunk accepts an argument called ``env_fn``, and that the ``env_fn`` should make a gym environment with the given ``env_name``. The way the experiment is actually executed is slightly complicated: the function is serialized to a string, and then ``run_entrypoint.py`` is executed in a subprocess call with the serialized string as an argument. ``run_entrypoint.py`` unserializes the function call and executes it. We choose to do it this way---instead of just calling the function directly here---to avoid leaking state between successive experiments. Args: exp_name (string): Name for experiment. thunk (callable): A python function. seed (int): Seed for random number generators. num_cpu (int): Number of MPI processes to split into. Also accepts 'auto', which will set up as many procs as there are cpus on the machine. data_dir (string): Used in configuring the logger, to decide where to store experiment results. Note: if left as None, data_dir will default to ``DEFAULT_DATA_DIR`` from ``spinup/user_config.py``. **kwargs: All kwargs to pass to thunk.
