Epochs Determination

How can I determine epochs?

Training loops over preprocessed shards. You can have a look at the logs to see when it loops back to shard 0. (Yet if you’re using the multiple dataset iterator, it won’t mean anything because ‘epochs’ won’t be the same depending on the dataset.)

I have 249382 samples on training data and 32000 for valid/test data
and batch size = 512 , it needs 249382 /512 steps for one epcoh?
if yes … when epoch end?

You also need to take into account the number of GPU you use and eventual gradient accumulation (-accum_count) to have your ‘true’ batch size.
E.g. with -batch_size 512, 2 GPUs, -accum_count 3, one step will be 512 * 2 * 3 examples.
You can check it in the log, when it loads the data again, hence starting an epoch, it will log ‘Loading dataset …’. (This may be a bit off because examples are loaded in advance to improve training speed and GPU utilization.)

Ok, I have thiese args for my system as following:
!onmt_train -batch_size 512
-accum_count 3
-layers 1
-rnn_size 128
-data data/data
-pre_word_vecs_enc “data/embeddings.enc.pt”
-pre_word_vecs_dec “data/embeddings.dec.pt”
-src_word_vec_size 224
-tgt_word_vec_size 336
-fix_word_vecs_enc
-fix_word_vecs_dec
-save_model data/model
-save_checkpoint_steps 100
-train_steps 1000
-model_type text
-encoder_type rnn
-decoder_type rnn
-rnn_type GRU
-global_attention dot
-global_attention_function softmax
-early_stopping 10
-optim adam
-learning_rate 0.001
-valid_steps 100
-dropout .2
-attention_dropout .3
and the log is

note: I have not gpu on my machine
and I cannot choose encoder type brnn (not valid arg) why?
and still confuesed about epochs

-encoder_type brnn works fine on my end with your exact same config - without pretrained embeddings though, I don’t have any at hand. Can you try without -pre_word_vecs_enc “data/embeddings.enc.pt” -pre_word_vecs_dec “data/embeddings.dec.pt” to see if it could be some side-effect (though I doubt it)?
And please provide a trace of any error you might encounter.

Regarding epochs, please do a bit of research, it’s a fairly common topic: https://machinelearningmastery.com/difference-between-a-batch-and-an-epoch/

Also, don’t expect to go very far without a GPU. Depending on the task, it could take weeks to properly train a simple model on CPU.

I know the differnece between epoch and batch , bu I mean epoch in OpenNMT so I copied the log to see details of my train

You don’t see much because you’re training on CPU. You can set -report_every 1 to report every step and you’ll see that each step takes very long, hence not reaching even an epoch.

i.e I trained my model for 1 epoch only!!!
Edit: after translation I calculate bleu score, then result is:
BLEU = 0.86, 16.1/3.3/1.1/0.5 (BP=0.362, ratio=0.496, hyp_len=190872, ref_len=384994)
how .86 ?

This is not magic. You need processing power to optimize your model.
You can try letting it run a few thousand steps, it should get better (or at least less bad) at inference.
Depending on (true) batch_size, model architecture and size, it can take tens or hundreds of thousands of steps to train a proper model. With such little data it should converge quite quickly, but you still need to be patient, even more so you’re on CPU.
(Rent a GPU instance on AWS or other if you want quicker results.)

  1. I want to train about 20 epochs, How can I get it? (training dataset about 190k and test & valid 25k) … I put training_steps with 1000 for experiment
  2. tensorboard does not work :frowning:
  3. In your Opinoin, what about my model parameters?
    Thanks again sir
  1. Already explained this. You can estimate the number of step in an epoch based on your batch size and the size of your data. (Be careful if your batch size is in tokens.)
  1. Please post an issue with the error trace on github.

  2. Depends on your task, data, etc. Have a look at some papers.

Thanks , I could calculate number of epoch required for my model
I have 190000 samples for Training data set and batch size 256 and acc_num 3
then 190000 / 256 = 742.1 then 742.1 / 3 = 247.3 step for one epoch
If I want to train my model for 50 epoch then 247.3*50 = 12370 training_steps
and I noticed this from the training log , it load training data every 247 step
