IOHanalyzer

metacran downloads CRAN_Status_Badge_version_last_release License R-CMD-check

The performance analyzer for Iterative Optimization Heuristics (IOHs).

It provides:

  • a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) to analyze and visualize the empirical performance of IOHs,
  • interactive plotting,
  • statistical evaluation,
  • report generation, and
  • a command-line interface (CLI) for the R console allowing for fine-grained controls.

It is built mainly on:

It is available through:

Online Service

A free server http://iohprofiler.liacs.nl running the stable version of IOHanalyzer is hosted in Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science. You're welcome to check it out!

Installation

Software dependency

  • [mandatory] R As IOHanalyzer is written as a R package, the R environment has to be installed first. The binary file and installation manual for R can be found here https://cran.r-project.org/.
  • [optional] orca required to download plotly figures. Please see https://github.com/plotly/orca for the installation instruction.

Stable version

Please start up an R console and install the stable version as:

R> install.packages('IOHanalyzer')

which is maintained on CRAN (Comprehensive R Archive Network).

Lastest version

The lastest development is always hosted on Github. In case you'd like to try out this version, the R package devtool is needed:

R> install.packages('devtools')
R> devtools::install_github('IOHprofiler/IOHanalyzer')

Development version

If you want to run the version on which you develop:

R> devtools::install_git("/path/to/your/IOHanalyzer/git/repo")

Runinng the Web Interface locally

The IOHanalyzer package can be loaded using the following commands:

R> library('IOHanalyzer')
R> runServer()

It should open a browser on the localhost server, using a random port number. Of course, you could also specify the port number directly:

R> runServer(port = 1234)

Have fun! For the complete reference on usage, please check out our Wiki page.

Host it online

We provide a docker file for deploying IOHanalyzer on the server. Please see https://github.com/IOHprofiler/IOHanalyzer-docker for details.

Supported Data Format

Specific formats are required to load your benchmark data to IOHanalyzer. If your data sets are generated in the format of

then you just need to compress the data folder obtained from the experiment into a zip file and uploaded it. However, you are encouraged to convert your own benchmark data to the format regulated here!. The supported data format is specified in this page. Please follow the instruction there to convert your data sets.
