Hi i'm trying to run a hyperparameter tuning experiment on a privately hosted server and the trials are forever enqueued (status: pending) as long as the main task is running but the workers are never utilised when the trials are not running. Is this expected behaviour? Below is an example of what i mean..

So this is why 🙂
an agent can only run one Task at a time.
The HPO (being a Task on its own) should run on the "services" queue, where the agent can run multiple "cpu controller" Tasks like the HPO.
Make sense ?

right right hahah got the terms wrong i assumed the agent meant a single machine. Thanks a lot Martin! saved me some extra time 🙏

ahhhh i see...so if i were to logically split a single agent into multiple queues would that allow me to run more tasks?

yea the agent appears idle based on utilisation. It's actually my laptop beside me...

You can just spin another agent on the same machine 🙂

yes it is running the parent hpo task.

Hey Martin, thanks for the reply. I did set up an agent and the reference template task runs perfectly fine on the worker. I only encounter this problem with the hyper parameter tuning experiments

Erm i'm not sure if the pics show what you mean. but essentially the hpo is running on the hpopt queue and my worker "fixitfelix" is assigned to the queue and is supposedly running the experiment already

Check on which queue the HPO puts the Tasks, and if the agent is listening to these queues

Hi AverageBee39
Did you setup an agent to execute the actual Tasks ?

Is the agent idle ? it is running something else ?

Does it say it runs something ?
(on the workers tab on the agents table it should say which Task it is running)

This is the parent task...shown in the pic of the experiment list above
