Module: tf.contrib.distribute

Defined in tensorflow/contrib/distribute/

A distributed computation library for TF.

See tensorflow/contrib/distribute/ for overview and examples.


class AllReduceCrossDeviceOps: Reduction using all reduce.

class CollectiveAllReduceStrategy: Distribution strategy that uses collective ops for all-reduce.

class CrossDeviceOps: Base class for cross-device reduction and broadcasting algorithms.

class DistributeConfig: A config tuple for distribution strategies.

class DistributionStrategy: A list of devices with a state & compute distribution policy.

class DistributionStrategyExtended: Additional APIs for algorithms that need to be distribution-aware.

class MirroredStrategy: Mirrors vars to distribute across multiple devices and machines.

class Monitor: Executes training steps, recovers and checkpoints.

class MultiWorkerAllReduce: All-reduce algorithms for distributed TensorFlow.

class OneDeviceStrategy: A distribution strategy for running on a single device.

class ParameterServerStrategy: A parameter server DistributionStrategy.

class ReductionToOneDeviceCrossDeviceOps: Always do reduction to one device first and then do broadcasting.

class ReplicaContext: tf.distribute.Strategy API when in a replica context.

class StandardInputStep: Step with a standard implementation of input handling.

class StandardSingleLossStep: A step function that implements a training step for a feed forward network.

class Step: Interface for performing each step of a training algorithm.

class TPUStrategy: TPU distribution strategy implementation.

class UpdateContext: Context manager when you are in update() or update_non_slot().
