Terminology

Job

Each execution on Dis.co is part of a job which contains:

  • A Python file: This is the script that will be run.

  • Data (input) files: A task will be created for each input file. If none is provided, a single task will be run.

  • Constants files (optional): Files containing constants for your job. All of the constants files will be available on any task execution. An example could be a requirements.txt file.

Task

A specific execution, on a specific machine. For example, to test 100 different models, you would launch one job called "Testing Models" which would include 100 tasks which would be distributed across up to 100 machines.

Launching your first job

In the next section we'll dive into running a job using Dis.co's Web view.
