The number of clients. If specified, the executor factory
function returned by sizing_executor_factory will be configured to have
exactly num_clients clients. If unspecified (None), then the function
returned will attempt to infer cardinalities of all placements for which
it is passed values.
The maximum fanout at any point in the aggregation hierarchy. If
num_clients > max_fanout, the constructed executor stack will consist of
multiple levels of aggregators. The height of the stack will be on the
order of log(num_clients) / log(max_fanout).
Integer number of clients for each of TFF's threads to
run in sequence. Increasing clients_per_thread therefore reduces the
concurrency of the TFF runtime, which can be useful if client work is very
lightweight or models are very large and multiple copies cannot fit in
An instance of executor_factory.ExecutorFactory encapsulating the
executor construction logic specified above.
If the number of clients is specified and not one or larger.
