tf.estimator.GlobalStepWaiterHook

Delays execution until global step reaches wait_until_step.

Inherits From: SessionRunHook

This hook delays execution until global step reaches to wait_until_step. It is used to gradually start workers in distributed settings. One example usage would be setting wait_until_step=int(K*log(task_id+1)) assuming that task_id=0 is the chief.

wait_until_step an int shows until which global step should we wait.

Methods

after_create_session

View source

Called when new TensorFlow session is created.

This is called to signal the hooks that a new session has been created. This has two essential differences with the situation in which begin is called:

  • When this is called, the graph is finalized and ops can no longer be added to the graph.
  • This method will also be called as a result of recovering a wrapped session, not only at the beginning of the overall session.

Args
session A TensorFlow Session that has been created.
coord A Coordinator object which keeps track of all threads.

after_run

View source

Called after each call to run().

The run_values argument contains results of requested ops/tensors by before_run().

The run_context argument is the same one send to before_run call. run_context.request_stop() can be called to stop the iteration.

If session.run() raises any exceptions then after_run() is not called.

Args
run_context A SessionRunContext object.
