flow_graph (de)serialization ?

I am looking for the recommended way to serialize out the graph to some persistent form so that I can load them back for future execution. What are the recommended formats/best-practices ?

 

Kind regards

Hi,


Thank you for posting in Intel Communities.


You can use function_node to perform the computation on input data and can pass the result to successors. 

And you can use sequencer_node to forward messages in a sequence order after the execution is performed.

Please refer to the below links for more details.

The answer did not address the serialisation aspect but maybe I have not worded the question correctly.

 

I have gave it some thought and will probably perform the graph description (de)serialization via GraphML and using oneTBB flow_graph for the actual object (C++) that I will create to represent the dependency graph I am thinking of.

 

You can close the ticket if you want.

My plan is to use Boost::graph for the high level graph description and through it, serialize via GraphML

 

With in the boost graph node I will house the tbb flow graph node

 

I have posted a related question regarding Composition vs Inheritance for tbb graph node if you can respond to that, it would be great.

 

You can close the ticket.
