Tracking UI

Ivory uses MLFlow Tracking for the workflow tracking and model saving. For this feature, the Client instace has to have a Tracker instance.

First create several runs for demonstration.

import ivory

client = ivory.create_client("examples")
run = client.create_run('torch')

Tracking UI

Optionally, you can update missing parameters:


[7] 2020-06-20 15:24:40 (357ms) python3 (1min7s)

In a terminal, move to the working directory (examples), then run

$ ivory ui

You can view the UI using URL http://localhost:5000 in your browser.

Table 1 A collection of runs. Parameters, metrics, tags are logged.


You can compare the training results among runs.
