ZeroDivisionError at ppl

I train a model ja-ko NMT

this is my config file

save_data: ko-ja/run/share
src_vocab : ko-ja/run/share.vocab.src
share_vocab : True

overwrite: False

Corpus opts:

path_src: ko-ja/src-train-bpe.txt
path_tgt: ko-ja/tgt-train-bpe2.txt
path_src: ko-ja/src-val-bpe.txt

I set my save check point_steps 10000,
but when my model is trained until 10000 step,
didn’t save a file and meet zero division error.
how can I solve it?

File “/home/work/dataset/WAT/OpenNMT-py/onmt/utils/”, line 97, in ppl
return math.exp(min(self.loss / self.n_words, 100))
ZeroDivisionError: division by zero

In your data folder, such as ./data/wmt, there are files : “,valid.en,,test.en”. In your case, these files may be empty, when you execute “”, the result must be increct, check the file “input-from-sgm.perl” is exists and execute crectly.
