Analysis (tune.analysis)

You can use the ExperimentAnalysis object for analyzing results. It is returned automatically when calling tune.run.

analysis = tune.run(
    trainable,
    name="example-experiment",
    num_samples=10,
)

Here are some example operations for obtaining a summary of your experiment:

# Get a dataframe for the last reported results of all of the trials
df = analysis.results_df

# Get a dataframe for the max accuracy seen for each trial
df = analysis.dataframe(metric="mean_accuracy", mode="max")

# Get a dict mapping {trial logdir -> dataframes} for all trials in the experiment.
all_dataframes = analysis.trial_dataframes

# Get a list of trials
trials = analysis.trials

You may want to get a summary of multiple experiments that point to the same local_dir. This is also supported by the ExperimentAnalysis class.

from ray.tune import ExperimentAnalysis
analysis = ExperimentAnalysis("~/ray_results/example-experiment")

ExperimentAnalysis (tune.ExperimentAnalysis)

class ray.tune.ExperimentAnalysis(experiment_checkpoint_path: str, trials: Optional[List[ray.tune.trial.Trial]] = None, default_metric: Optional[str] = None, default_mode: Optional[str] = None, sync_config: Optional[ray.tune.syncer.SyncConfig] = None)[source]

Analyze results from a Tune experiment.

To use this class, the experiment must be executed with the JsonLogger.

Parameters
  • experiment_checkpoint_path (str) – Path to a json file or directory representing an experiment state, or a directory containing multiple experiment states (a run’s local_dir). Corresponds to Experiment.local_dir/Experiment.name/ experiment_state.json

  • trials (list|None) – List of trials that can be accessed via analysis.trials.

  • default_metric (str) – Default metric for comparing results. Can be overwritten with the metric parameter in the respective functions.

  • default_mode (str) – Default mode for comparing results. Has to be one of [min, max]. Can be overwritten with the mode parameter in the respective functions.

Example

>>> tune.run(my_trainable, name="my_exp", local_dir="~/tune_results")
>>> analysis = ExperimentAnalysis(
>>>     experiment_checkpoint_path="~/tune_results/my_exp/state.json")

Retrieve the best trial object.

Compares all trials’ scores on metric. If metric is not specified, self.default_metric will be used. If mode is not specified, self.default_mode will be used. These values are usually initialized by passing the metric and mode parameters to tune.run().

TrialCheckpoint (tune.cloud.TrialCheckpoint)

class ray.tune.cloud.TrialCheckpoint(local_path: Optional[str] = None, cloud_path: Optional[str] = None)[source]

DEPRECATED: This API is deprecated and may be removed in future Ray releases.

download(cloud_path: Optional[str] = None, local_path: Optional[str] = None, overwrite: bool = False) str[source]

Download checkpoint from cloud.

This will fetch the checkpoint directory from cloud storage and save it to local_path.

If a local_path argument is provided and self.local_path is unset, it will be set to local_path.

Parameters
  • cloud_path (Optional[str]) – Cloud path to load checkpoint from. Defaults to self.cloud_path.

  • local_path (Optional[str]) – Local path to save checkpoint at. Defaults to self.local_path.

  • overwrite (bool) – If True, overwrites potential existing local checkpoint. If False, exits if self.local_dir already exists and has files in it.

upload(cloud_path: Optional[str] = None, local_path: Optional[str] = None, clean_before: bool = False)[source]

Upload checkpoint to cloud.

This will push the checkpoint directory from local storage to cloud_path.

If a cloud_path argument is provided and self.cloud_path is unset, it will be set to cloud_path.

Parameters
  • cloud_path (Optional[str]) – Cloud path to load checkpoint from. Defaults to self.cloud_path.

  • local_path (Optional[str]) – Local path to save checkpoint at. Defaults to self.local_path.

  • clean_before (bool) – If True, deletes potentially existing cloud bucket before storing new data.

save(path: Optional[str] = None, force_download: bool = False)[source]

Save trial checkpoint to directory or cloud storage.

If the path is a local target and the checkpoint already exists on local storage, the local directory is copied. Else, the checkpoint is downloaded from cloud storage.

If the path is a cloud target and the checkpoint does not already exist on local storage, it is downloaded from cloud storage before. That way checkpoints can be transferred across cloud storage providers.

Parameters
  • path (Optional[str]) – Path to save checkpoint at. If empty, the default cloud storage path is saved to the default local directory.

  • force_download (bool) – If True, forces (re-)download of the checkpoint. Defaults to False.
