ParallelEnumerable.AsOrdered Method (ParallelQuery)

.NET Framework (current version)
 

Enables treatment of a data source as if it were ordered, overriding the default of unordered. AsOrdered may only be invoked on non-generic sequences returned by AsParallel, ParallelEnumerable.Range, and ParallelEnumerable.Repeat.

Namespace:   System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

static member AsOrdered : 
        source:ParallelQuery -> ParallelQuery

Parameters

source
Type: System.Linq.ParallelQuery

The input sequence.

Return Value

Type: System.Linq.ParallelQuery

The source sequence which will maintain the original ordering in the subsequent query operators.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

InvalidOperationException

thrown if source contains no elements

-or-

if AsOrdered is called midway through a query. It is allowed to be called immediately after AsParallel, Range or Repeat<'TResult>.

A natural tension exists between performance and preserving order in parallel processing. By default, a parallelized query behaves as if the ordering of the results is arbitrary unless AsOrdered is applied or there is an explicit OrderBy operator in the query.
