The purpose of a meter is to signal proportional completion of a task and to be able to trigger another job that is waiting for this proportional completion. Let us say that the task "model" creates a hundred files, and there are ten other tasks to process these files. Task "t0" processes files 0-9, task "t1" files 10-19, and so on. The python API would look something like:

suite = Suite("x")
f = suite.add_family("f") 
task_model = f.add_task("model")
for i in range(0,9):
 file = i*10 + 10
 t = f.add_task("t" + str)
 t.add_trigger("model:file ge " + str(file))
