Hi, I Have A Local Package That I Use To Train My Models. To Start Training, I Have A Script That Calls

Hi, I have a local package that I use to train my models. To start training, I have a script that calls task._update_requirements([".", "torch==1.11.0"]) .
In my setup.py I declared:
extras_require={"train": ["torch==1.11.0"]}So that I could simply do task._update_requirements(".[train]") but when I do this, the clearml agent (latest version) does not try to grab the matching cuda version, it only takes the cpu version. Is it a known bug?

you can freeze your local env and thus get all the packages installed. With pip (on linux) it would be something like that :
pip freeze > requirements.txt
(doc here https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/cli/pip_freeze/ )

Hi JitteryCoyote63

So that I could simply do


but when I do this, the clearml agent (latest version) does not try to grab the matching cuda version, it only takes the cpu version. Is it a known bug?

The easiest way to go about is to add:
Task.add_requirements("torch", "==1.11.0") task = Task.init(...)Then it will auto detect your custom package, and will always add the torch version. The main issue with relying on the package requirements, is that the "torch" package will not be automatically get listed in the "installed packages" and the agent will not know it needs to resolve it (when pip resolves torch, it will default to the wrong cpu/cuda version)

Hi AgitatedDove14 , initially I was doing this, but then I realised that with the approach you suggest all the packages of the local environment also end up in the “installed packages”, while in reality I only need the dependencies of the local package. That’s why I use _update_requirements , with this approach only the package required will be installed in the agent

Posted 12 months ago

You can force to install only the packages that you need using a requirements.txt file. Type into what you want the agent to install (pytorch and eventually clearml). Then call that function before Task.init :
Task.force_requirements_env_freeze(force=True, requirements_file='path/to/requirements.txt')

Posted 12 months ago

that would work for pytorch and clearml yes, but what about my local package?

Posted 12 months ago

JitteryCoyote63 I think that without specifically adding torch to the requirements, the agent will not be able to automatically resolve the correct cuda/torch version. Basically you should add torch to the requirements.txt file, and provide it to Task create, or use Task.force_requirements_env_freeze

Hi NonchalantHedgehong19 , thanks for the hint! what should be the content of the requirement file then? Can I specify my local package inside? how?

Posted 12 months ago

could you please share the logs for that issue (without the cred 🙂 ) ?

Posted 12 months ago

hey H4dr1en
you just specify the packages that you want to be installed (no need to specify the dependancies) and the version if needed.
Something like :
