How to configure prepare_model

How severe does this issue affect your experience of using Ray?

  • High: It blocks me to complete my task.

Code runs to
When “model=train. task. prepare_model (model)” is selected, pychar reports an error and outputs the prompt “ray. train. error. SessionMisseError: prepare/accelerate utility functions should be called inside a training function executed by ‘Trainer. run’”. Do I need to write any other code?

Hey, you’ll need to create a TorchTrainer to run your code in a distributed fashion.

Can you take a look at the following resources and see if they help?

I have created a TorchTrainer . But I passed a lot of parameters directly in train_func, should this be avoided?
For example, trainer = TorchTrainer(
scaling_config=ScalingConfig(use_gpu=use_gpu, num_workers=2)

Yeah, if you do that then it will be executing train_func(a,b,c,d,e,f,g) and passing the result to TorchTrainer, rather than the function itself!

You could try something like:

def updated_train_func():
    return train_func(a,b,c,d,e,f,g)

trainer = TorchTrainer(
    updated_train_func, # note that there is no ()
    scaling_config=ScalingConfig(use_gpu=use_gpu, num_workers=2)

However, keep in mind that the whole function is serialized, so if any of the parameters a,b,c,d,e,f,g are large (e.g. a dataset or a model), it would be a good idea to initialize them within the training function directly!

Ok, thank you very much for your answer, I will try to modify it!
