Tianshou comes with multiple experiment tracking and logging solutions to manage and reproduce your experiments. The dashboard loggers currently available are:
Tensorboard tracks your experiment metrics in a local dashboard. Here is how you can use TensorboardLogger in your experiment:
from torch.utils.tensorboard import SummaryWriter from tianshou.utils import TensorboardLogger log_path = os.path.join(args.logdir, args.task, "dqn") writer = SummaryWriter(log_path) writer.add_text("args", str(args)) logger = TensorboardLogger(writer) result = trainer(..., logger=logger)
WandbLogger can be used to visualize your experiments in a hosted W&B dashboard. It can be installed via
pip install wandb. You can also save your checkpoints in the cloud and restore your runs from those checkpoints. Here is how you can enable WandbLogger:
from tianshou.utils import WandbLogger logger = WandbLogger(...) result = trainer(..., logger=logger)
Please refer to
WandbLogger documentation for advanced configuration.
For logging checkpoints on any device, you need to define a
save_checkpoint_fn which saves the experiment checkpoint and returns the path of the saved checkpoint:
def save_checkpoint_fn(epoch, env_step, gradient_step): ckpt_path = ... # save model return ckpt_path
Then, use this function with
WandbLogger to automatically version your experiment checkpoints after every
For resuming runs from checkpoint artifacts on any device, pass the W&B
run_id of the run that you want to continue in
WandbLogger. It will then download the latest version of the checkpoint and resume your runs from the checkpoint.
This is a place-holder logger that does nothing.
