Hello,

Regarding to the swarm description config file, the source under streamDef must be “csv” only or it can be panda dataframe variable ?

Best Regards,

The swarming codebase is very old and rigid. It does not allow streaming input. You must use a CSV file. This is because swarming is only used to sample some of the data stream (in a CSV file) to try to find optimal model parameters. When you create your NuPIC model, you can stream data into it however you wish.
