Defined in tensorflow/contrib/training/python/training/evaluation.py.

Waits until a new checkpoint file is found.

Args:

  • last_checkpoint: The last checkpoint path used or None if we're expecting a checkpoint for the first time.
  • seconds_to_sleep: The number of seconds to sleep for before looking for a new checkpoint.
  • timeout: The maximum amount of time to wait. If left as None, then the process will wait indefinitely.

Returns:
