testing_fromlog executes the testing of the target algorithm configurations found by an irace execution.

Usage

testing_fromlog(
logFile,
testNbElites,
testIterationElites,
testInstancesDir,
testInstancesFile,
testInstances
)

Arguments

logFile

Path to the .Rdata file produced by irace.

testNbElites

Number of (final) elite configurations to test. Overrides the value found in logFile.

testIterationElites

(logical(1)) If FALSE, only the final testNbElites configurations are tested; otherwise, also test the best configurations of each iteration. Overrides the value found in logFile.

testInstancesDir

Directory where testing instances are located, either absolute or relative to current directory.

testInstancesFile

File containing a list of test instances and optionally additional parameters for them.

testInstances

Character vector of the instances to be used in the targetRunner when executing the testing.

Value

Boolean. TRUE if the testing ended successfully otherwise, FALSE.

Details

The function testing_fromlog loads the logFile and obtains the testing setup and configurations to be tested. Within the logFile, the variable scenario$testNbElites specifies how many final elite configurations to test and scenario$testIterationElites indicates whether test the best configuration of each iteration. The values may be overridden by setting the corresponding arguments in this function. The set of testing instances must appear in scenario[["testInstances"]].

defaultScenario() to provide a default scenario for irace. testing_fromfile() provides a different interface for testing.
