tf.queue.PaddingFIFOQueue

A FIFOQueue that supports batching variable-sized tensors by padding.

Inherits From: QueueBase

A PaddingFIFOQueue may contain components with dynamic shape, while also supporting dequeue_many. See the constructor for more details.

See tf.queue.QueueBase for a description of the methods on this class.

capacity An integer. The upper bound on the number of elements that may be stored in this queue.
dtypes A list of DType objects. The length of dtypes must equal the number of tensors in each queue element.
shapes A list of TensorShape objects, with the same length as dtypes. Any dimension in the TensorShape containing value None is dynamic and allows values to be enqueued with variable size in that dimension.
names (Optional.) A list of string naming the components in the queue with the same length as dtypes, or None. If specified the dequeue methods return a dictionary with the names as keys.
shared_name (Optional.) If non-empty, this queue will be shared under the given name across multiple sessions.
name Optional name for the queue operation.

ValueError If shapes is not a list of shapes, or the lengths of dtypes and shapes do not match, or if names is specified and the lengths of dtypes and names do not match.

dtypes The list of dtypes for each component of a queue element.
name The name of the underlying queue.
names The list of names for each component of a queue element.
queue_ref The underlying queue reference.
shapes The list of shapes for each component of a queue element.

Methods

close

View source

Closes this queue.

This operation signals that no more elements will be enqueued in the given queue. Subsequent enqueue and enqueue_many operations will fail. Subsequent dequeue and dequeue_many operations will continue to succeed if sufficient elements remain in the queue. Subsequently dequeue and dequeue_many operations that would otherwise block waiting for more elements (if close hadn't been called) will now fail immediately.

If cancel_pending_enqueues is True, all pending requests will also be canceled.

Args
cancel_pending_enqueues (Optional.) A boolean, defaulting to False (described above).
name A name for the operation (optional).

Returns
The operation that closes the queue.

dequeue

View source

Dequeues one element from this queue.

If the queue is empty when this operation executes, it will block until there is an element to dequeue.

At runtime, this operation may raise an error if the queue is tf.QueueBase.close before or during its execution. If the queue is closed, the queue is empty, and there are no pending enqueue operations that can fulfill this request, tf.errors.OutOfRangeError will be raised. If the session is tf.Session.close, tf.errors.CancelledError will be raised.

Args
name A name for the operation (optional).

Returns
The tuple of tensors that was dequeued.

dequeue_many

View source

Dequeues and concatenates n elements from this queue.

This operation concatenates queue-element component tensors along the 0th dimension to make a single component tensor. All of the components in the dequeued tuple will have size n in the 0th dimension.

If the queue is closed and there are less than n elements left, then an OutOfRange exception is raised.

At runtime, this operation may raise an error if the queue is tf.QueueBase.close before or during its execution. If the queue is closed, the queue contains fewer than n elements, and there are no pending enqueue operations that can fulfill this request, tf.errors.OutOfRangeError will be raised. If the session is tf.Session.close, tf.errors.CancelledError will be raised.

Args
n A scalar Tensor containing the number of elements to dequeue.
name A name for the operation (optional).

Returns
The list of concatenated tensors that was dequeued.

dequeue_up_to

View source

Dequeues and concatenates n elements from this queue.

This operation concatenates queue-element component tensors along the 0th dimension to make a single component tensor. If the queue has not been closed, all of the components in the dequeued tuple will have size n in the 0th dimension.

If the queue is closed and there are more than 0 but fewer than n elements remaining, then instead of raising a tf.errors.OutOfRangeError like tf.QueueBase.dequeue_many, less than n elements are returned immediately. If the queue is closed and there are 0 elements left in the queue, then a tf.errors.OutOfRangeError is raised just like in dequeue_many. Otherwise the behavior is identical to dequeue_many.

Args
n A scalar Tensor containing the number of elements to dequeue.
name A name for the operation (optional).

Returns
The tuple of concatenated tensors that was dequeued.

enqueue

View source

Enqueues one element to this queue.

If the queue is full when this operation executes, it will block until the element has been enqueued.

At runtime, this operation may raise an error if the queue is tf.QueueBase.close before or during its execution. If the queue is closed before this operation runs, tf.errors.CancelledError will be raised. If this operation is blocked, and either (i) the queue is closed by a close operation with cancel_pending_enqueues=True, or (ii) the session is tf.Session.close, tf.errors.CancelledError will be raised.

Args
vals A tensor, a list or tuple of tensors, or a dictionary containing the values to enqueue.
name A name for the operation (optional).

Returns
The operation that enqueues a new tuple of tensors to the queue.

enqueue_many

View source

Enqueues zero or more elements to this queue.

This operation slices each component tensor along the 0th dimension to make multiple queue elements. All of the tensors in vals must have the same size in the 0th dimension.

If the queue is full when this operation executes, it will block until all of the elements have been enqueued.

At runtime, this operation may raise an error if the queue is tf.QueueBase.close before or during its execution. If the queue is closed before this operation runs, tf.errors.CancelledError will be raised. If this operation is blocked, and either (
