Splits the source text into a strings column using a multiple byte delimiter.

Providing a byte range allows multibyte_split to read a file partially, only returning the offsets of delimiters which begin within the range. If thinking in terms of “records”, where each delimiter dictates the end of a record, all records which begin within the byte range provided will be returned, including any record which may begin in the range but end outside of the range. Records which begin outside of the range will ignored, even if those records end inside the range.

Examples:
 source:     "abc..def..ghi..jkl.."
 delimiter:  ".."

 byte_range: nullopt
 return:     ["abc..", "def..", "ghi..", jkl..", ""]

 byte_range: [0, 2)
 return:     ["abc.."]

 byte_range: [2, 9)
 return:     ["def..", "ghi.."]

 byte_range: [11, 2)
 return:     []

 byte_range: [13, 7)
 return:     ["jkl..", ""]
Parameters:
  • source – The source string

  • delimiter – UTF-8 encoded string for which to find offsets in the source

  • options – the parsing options to use (including byte range)

  • stream – CUDA stream used for device memory operations and kernel launches

  • mr – Memory resource to use for the device memory allocation

Returns:

The strings found by splitting the source by the delimiter within the relevant byte range.

class chunked_orc_reader#
#include <orc.hpp>

The chunked orc reader class to read an ORC file iteratively into a series of tables, chunk by chunk.

This class is designed to address the reading issue when reading very large ORC files such that sizes of their columns exceed the limit that can be stored in cudf columns. By reading the file content by chunks using this class, each chunk is guaranteed to have its size stay within the given limit.

Public Functions

chunked_orc_reader() = default#

Default constructor, this should never be used.

This is added just to satisfy cython.

explicit chunked_orc_reader(std::size_t chunk_read_limit, std::size_t pass_read_limit, size_type output_row_granularity, orc_reader_options const &options, rmm::cuda_stream_view stream = cudf::get_default_stream(), rmm::device_async_resource_ref mr = rmm::mr::get_current_device_resource())#

Construct the reader from input/output size limits, output row granularity, along with other ORC reader options.

The typical usage should be similar to this:

do {
  auto const chunk = reader.read_chunk();
  // Process chunk
} while (reader.has_next());

If chunk_read_limit == 0 (i.e., no output limit) and pass_read_limit == 0 (no temporary memory size limit), a call to read_chunk() will read the whole data source and return a table containing all rows.

The chunk_read_limit parameter controls the size of the output table to be returned per read_chunk() call. If the user specifies a 100 MB limit, the reader will attempt to return tables that have a total bytes size (over all columns) of 100 MB or less. This is a soft limit and the code will not fail if it cannot satisfy the limit.

The pass_read_limit parameter controls how much temporary memory is used in the entire process of loading, decompressing and decoding of data. Again, this is also a soft limit and the reader will try to make the best effort.

Finally, the parameter output_row_granularity controls the changes in row number of the output chunk. For each call to read_chunk(), with respect to the given pass_read_limit, a subset of stripes may be loaded, decompressed and decoded into an intermediate table. The reader will then subdivide that table into smaller tables for final output using output_row_granularity as the subdivision step.

Parameters:
  • chunk_read_limit – Limit on total number of bytes to be returned per read_chunk() call, or 0 if there is no limit

  • pass_read_limit – Limit on temporary memory usage for reading the data sources, or 0 if there is no limit

  • output_row_granularity – The granularity parameter used for subdividing the decoded table for final output

  • options – Settings for controlling reading behaviors

  • stream – CUDA stream used for device memory operations and kernel launches

  • mr – Device memory resource to use for device memory allocation

Throws:

cudf::logic_error – if output_row_granularity is non-positive

explicit chunked_orc_reader(std::size_t chunk_read_limit, std::size_t pass_read_limit, orc_reader_options const &options, rmm::cuda_stream_view stream = cudf::get_default_stream(), rmm::device_async_resource_ref mr = rmm::mr::get_current_device_resource())#

This constructor implicitly call the other constructor with output_row_granularity set to DEFAULT_OUTPUT_ROW_GRANULARITY rows.

Parameters:
  • chunk_read_limit – Limit on total number of bytes to be returned per read_chunk() call, or 0 if there is no limit

  • pass_read_limit – Limit on temporary memory usage for reading the data sources, or 0 if there is no limit

  • options – Settings for controlling reading behaviors

  • stream – CUDA stream used for device memory operations and kernel launches

  • mr – Device memory resource to use for device memory allocation

explicit chunked_orc_reader(std::size_t chunk_read_limit, orc_reader_options const &options, rmm::cuda_stream_view stream = cudf::get_default_stream(), rmm::device_async_resource_ref mr = rmm::mr::get_current_device_resource())#

inline void set_filter(ast::expression const &filter)#

Sets AST based filter for predicate pushdown.

The filter can utilize cudf::ast::column_name_reference to reference a column by its name, even if it’s not necessarily present in the requested projected columns. To refer to output column indices, you can use cudf::ast::column_reference.

For a parquet with columns [“A”, “B”, “C”, … “X”, “Y”, “Z”], Example 1: with/without column projection

use_columns({"A", "X", "Z"})
.filter(operation(ast_operator::LESS, column_name_reference{"C"}, literal{100}));
Column “C” need not be present in output table. Example 2: without column projection
filter(operation(ast_operator::LESS, column_reference{1}, literal{100}));
Here, 1 will refer to column “B” because output will contain all columns in order [“A”, …, “Z”]. Example 3: with column projection
use_columns({"A", "Z", "X"})

Creates a parquet_reader_options_builder which will build parquet_reader_options.

Parameters:

src – Source information to read parquet file

Returns:

Builder to build reader options

class parquet_reader_options_builder#
#include <parquet.hpp>

Builds parquet_reader_options to use for read_parquet().

Public Functions

parquet_reader_options_builder() = default#

Default constructor.

This has been added since Cython requires a default constructor to create objects on stack.

Constructor from source info.

Parameters:

src – The source information used to read parquet file

inline parquet_reader_options_builder &columns(std::vector<std::string> col_names)#

Sets names of the columns to be read.

Parameters:

col_names – Vector of column names

Returns:

this for chaining

inline parquet_reader_options_builder &row_groups(std::vector<std::vector<size_type>> row_groups)#

Sets vector of individual row groups to read.

Parameters:

row_groups – Vector of row groups to read

Returns:

this for chaining

inline parquet_reader_options_builder &filter(ast::expression const &filter)#

Sets AST based filter for predicate pushdown.

The filter can utilize cudf::ast::column_name_reference to reference a column by its name, even if it’s not necessarily present in the requested projected columns. To refer to output column indices, you can use cudf::ast::column_reference.

For a parquet with columns [“A”, “B”, “C”, … “X”, “Y”, “Z”], Example 1: with/without column projection

use_columns({"A", "X", "Z"})
.filter(operation(ast_operator::LESS, column_name_reference{"C"}, literal{100}));
Column “C” need not be present in output table. Example 2: without column projection
filter(operation(ast_operator::LESS, column_reference{1}, literal{100}));
Here, 1 will refer to column “B” because output will contain all columns in order [“A”, …, “Z”]. Example 3: with column projection
use_columns({"A", "Z", "X"})
.filter(operation(ast_operator::LESS, column_reference{1}, literal{100}));
Here, 1 will refer to column “Z” because output will contain 3 columns in order [“A”, “Z”, “X”].

class chunked_parquet_reader#
#include <parquet.hpp>

The chunked parquet reader class to read Parquet file iteratively in to a series of tables, chunk by chunk.

This class is designed to address the reading issue when reading very large Parquet files such that the sizes of their column exceed the limit that can be stored in cudf column. By reading the file content by chunks using this class, each chunk is guaranteed to have its sizes stay within the given limit.

Public Functions

chunked_parquet_reader() = default#

Default constructor, this should never be used.

This is added just to satisfy cython.

chunked_parquet_reader(std::size_t chunk_read_limit, parquet_reader_options const &options, rmm::cuda_stream_view stream = cudf::get_default_stream(), rmm::device_async_resource_ref mr = rmm::mr::get_current_device_resource())#

Constructor for chunked reader.

This constructor requires the same parquet_reader_option parameter as in cudf::read_parquet(), and an additional parameter to specify the size byte limit of the output table for each reading.

Parameters:
  • chunk_read_limit – Limit on total number of bytes to be returned per read, or 0 if there is no limit

  • options – The options used to read Parquet file

  • stream – CUDA stream used for device memory operations and kernel launches

  • mr – Device memory resource to use for device memory allocation

chunked_parquet_reader(std::size_t chunk_read_limit, std::size_t pass_read_limit, parquet_reader_options const &options, rmm::cuda_stream_view stream = cudf::get_default_stream(), rmm::device_async_resource_ref mr = rmm::mr::get_current_device_resource())#

Constructor for chunked reader.

This constructor requires the same parquet_reader_option parameter as in cudf::read_parquet(), with additional parameters to specify the size byte limit of the output table for each reading, and a byte limit on the amount of temporary memory to use when reading. pass_read_limit affects how many row groups we can read at a time by limiting the amount of memory dedicated to decompression space. pass_read_limit is a hint, not an absolute limit - if a single row group cannot fit within the limit given, it will still be loaded.

Parameters:
  • chunk_read_limit – Limit on total number of bytes to be returned per read, or 0 if there is no limit

  • pass_read_limit – Limit on the amount of memory used for reading and decompressing data or 0 if there is no limit

  • options – The options used to read Parquet file

  • stream – CUDA stream used for device memory operations and kernel launches

  • mr – Device memory resource to use for device memory allocation

~chunked_parquet_reader()#

Destructor, destroying the internal reader instance.

Since the declaration of the internal reader object does not exist in this header, this destructor needs to be defined in a separate source file which can access to that object’s declaration.

bool has_next() const#

Check if there is any data in the given file has not yet read.

Returns:

A boolean value indicating if there is any data left to read

table_with_metadata read_chunk() const#

Read a chunk of rows in the given Parquet file.

The sequence of returned tables, if concatenated by their order, guarantees to form a complete dataset as reading the entire given file at once.

An empty table will be returned if the given file is empty, or all the data in the file has been read and returned by the previous calls.

Returns:

An output cudf::table along with its metadata

class device_data_chunk#
#include <data_chunk_source.hpp>

A contract guaranteeing stream-ordered memory access to the underlying device data.

This class guarantees access to the underlying data for the stream on which the data was allocated. Possible implementations may own the device data, or may only have a view over the data. Any work enqueued to the stream on which this data was allocated is guaranteed to be performed prior to the destruction of the underlying data, but otherwise no guarantees are made regarding if or when the underlying data gets destroyed.

Public Functions

virtual char const *data() const = 0#

Returns a pointer to the underlying device data.

Returns:

A pointer to the underlying device data

virtual std::size_t size() const = 0#

Returns the size of the underlying device data.

Returns:

The size of the underlying device data

virtual operator device_span<char const>() const = 0#

Returns a span over the underlying device data.

Returns:

A span over the underlying device data

class data_chunk_reader#
#include <data_chunk_source.hpp>

a reader capable of producing views over device memory.

The data chunk reader API encapsulates the idea of statefully traversing and loading a data source. A data source may be a file, a region of device memory, or a region of host memory. Reading data from these data sources efficiently requires different strategies depending on the type of data source, type of compression, capabilities of the host and device, the data’s destination. Whole-file decompression should be hidden behind this interface.

Public Functions

virtual void skip_bytes(std::size_t size) = 0#

Skips the specified number of bytes in the data source.

Parameters:

size – The number of bytes to skip

virtual std::unique_ptr<device_data_chunk> get_next_chunk(std::size_t size, rmm::cuda_stream_view stream) = 0#

Get the next chunk of bytes from the data source.

Performs any necessary work to read and prepare the underlying data source for consumption as a view over device memory. Common implementations may read from a file, copy data from host memory, allocate temporary memory, perform iterative decompression, or even launch device kernels.

Parameters:
  • size – number of bytes to read

  • stream – stream to associate allocations or perform work required to obtain chunk

Returns:

a chunk of data up to size bytes. May return less than size bytes if reader reaches end of underlying data source. Returned data must be accessed in stream order relative to the specified stream

class data_chunk_source#
#include <data_chunk_source.hpp>

a data source capable of creating a reader which can produce views of the data source in device memory.

Public Functions

virtual std::unique_ptr<data_chunk_reader> create_reader() const = 0#

Get a reader for the data source.

Returns:

data_chunk_reader object for the data source

struct parse_options#
#include <multibyte_split.hpp>

Parsing options for multibyte_split.

Public Members

byte_range_info byte_range = create_byte_range_info_max()#

Only rows starting inside this byte range will be part of the output column.

bool strip_delimiters = false#

Whether delimiters at the end of rows should be stripped from the output column.
