Method IsSolutionCompatible in PartialDependencePlotView is slow for datasets with string variables

Reported by: gkronber Owned by: gkronber
Priority: medium Milestone: HeuristicLab 3.3.17
Component: Problems.DataAnalysis.Symbolic.Regression.Views Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Inefficient code leads to blocking GUI.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. load a dataset with at least one string variable
  2. create two independent regression solutions
  3. open the partial dependence plot for one solution and draw the other solution on top of it

The relevant code is:

    private static bool SolutionsCompatible(IEnumerable<IRegressionSolution> solutions) {
      var refSolution = solutions.First();
      var refSolVars = refSolution.ProblemData.Dataset.VariableNames;
      foreach (var solution in solutions.Skip(1)) {
        var variables1 = solution.ProblemData.Dataset.VariableNames;
        if (!variables1.All(refSolVars.Contains))
          return false;

        foreach (var factorVar in variables1.Where(solution.ProblemData.Dataset.VariableHasType<string>)) {
          var distinctVals = refSolution.ProblemData.Dataset.GetStringValues(factorVar).Distinct();
          if (solution.ProblemData.Dataset.GetStringValues(factorVar).Any(val => !distinctVals.Contains(val))) return false;
      return true;

I tested the implementation and could not reproduce the performance problem anymore.
