Starting Guild View
Start Guild View by running:
This will start Guild View an a randomly selected port and open it in your browser.
If you’re running Guild View on a remote server, Guild will not be
able to open it on your workstation. Instead, manually open the link
displayed by the
guild view command.
If you’d like to run Guild View on a specific port, use:
guild view --port PORT
If you’d like to start Guild View without opening a new browser window, use:
guild view --no-open
For more help, see the view command.
Viewing specific runs
You can limit the runs that you view using various Guild View options.
For example, to view only runs for operations associated with a
particular model, use the
‑‑operation) option and specify
guild view -o MODEL
For example, if you’re working with the
resnet‑50 model, you can
tell Guild View to only show runs for that model by running:
guild view -o resnet-50
For a complete list of options, see the view command.
Filtering runs within Guild View
You can further filter runs in Guild View using the Filter input in the upper left of the window.
Runs can be filtered using:
- Operation name
- Run ID
Viewing run files
You can browse run files—both those used as run input and those generated as output—by clicking on the FILES tab.
Use the Filter input at the top of the files list to view only files you’re interested in.
Guild View provides a built-in file viewer for some file types:
If a file can be opened in Guild View, its name will appear as a light grey button. When you click the button, Guild will open a file viewer.
When you’re viewing files in Guild View, you can navigate through them using NEXT and PREV buttons.
View runs in TensorBoard
Guild View provides integration with TensorBoard. To view TensorFlow event logs, click in the upper left of the window.
If you’re running Guild View on a remote server, the View in TensorBoard feature will work. This is a known issue and will be fixed in upcoming releases of Guild AI. To view runs in TensorBoard on a remote server, use the tensorboard command from the remote server instead of Guild View.
Guild View and TensorBoard will automatically update to show the latest runs and run files.
Stopping Guild View
Guild View will run until it’s stopped. To stop Guild View, type
CTRL‑C in the console window where Guild View is running.
When you’ve stopped Guild View, the associated browser window will no longer update or respond.
