gluonts.evaluation.backtest.backtest_metrics(train_dataset: Optional[gluonts.dataset.common.Dataset], test_dataset: gluonts.dataset.common.Dataset, forecaster: Union[gluonts.model.estimator.Estimator, gluonts.model.predictor.Predictor], evaluator=<gluonts.evaluation._base.Evaluator object>, num_samples: int = 100, logging_file: Optional[str] = None, use_symbol_block_predictor: bool = False)[source]
  • train_dataset – Dataset to use for training.
  • test_dataset – Dataset to use for testing.
  • forecaster – An estimator or a predictor to use for generating predictions.
  • evaluator – Evaluator to use.
  • num_samples – Number of samples to use when generating sample-based forecasts.
  • logging_file – If specified, information of the backtest is redirected to this file.
  • use_symbol_block_predictor – Use a SymbolBlockPredictor during testing.

A tuple of aggregate metrics and per-time-series metrics obtained by training forecaster on train_dataset and evaluating the resulting evaluator provided on the test_dataset.

Return type:


gluonts.evaluation.backtest.make_evaluation_predictions(dataset: gluonts.dataset.common.Dataset, predictor: gluonts.model.predictor.Predictor, num_samples: int) → Tuple[Iterator[gluonts.model.forecast.Forecast], Iterator[pandas.core.series.Series]][source]

Return predictions on the last portion of predict_length time units of the target. Such portion is cut before making predictions, such a function can be used in evaluations where accuracy is evaluated on the last portion of the target.

  • dataset – Dataset where the evaluation will happen. Only the portion excluding the prediction_length portion is used when making prediction.
  • predictor – Model used to draw predictions.
  • num_samples – Number of samples to draw on the model when evaluating.
