Shuffling sequences with LSTM


I am running ppo and adding lstm to my model using the auto wrapper.
I just upgraded ray from 1.2.0 to 1.5.0 and I’m missing the warning about disabling the data shuffling: “Not time-shuffling RNN data for SGD”
I assumed that it is really for the best when using lstm and having time series inputs.

Should I explicitly change “shuffle_sequences” to False from now on, or is my assumption wrong to begin with?
Could you please explain why this change happened?


Hi @2dm,

It looks like they just removed the warning message. The seems are still not being shuffled.
