TensorBoard is used for visually monitoring statistics while a neural network trains.

One recommendation for using TensorBoard on HiPerGator is to run TensorBoard monitoring as a separate workload. Many neural network software frameworks are able to stream training data to a TensorBoard log file. Here are the steps to monitor the log separately from your training workload:

  • Request a 1 CPU 2 GB RAM HiPerGator Desktop or a console session via OnDemand
  • Start a tensorboard instance in the resulting terminal/shell:
module load tensorflow ubuntu
tensorboard --logdir ./pathtolog
  • Copy the printed URL
  • Start a browser:
firefox (or chrome)
  • Paste the tensorboard URL into the browser's location bar to view the TensorBoard log
