Introduction

Polyaxon tracking is a high level api for logging parameters, code versions, metrics, and outputs when running your machine learning code, both on a Polyaxon deployment or on a different platform/environment.

The tracked information will be later visualized and compared on the Polyaxon dashboard.

Polyaxon tracking lets you log and interact with REST API in a very convenient way.

In previous versions of Polyaxon, we only exposed metrics reporting through, polyaxon-helper.

The new polyaxon-client allows more advanced workflows, both managed by Polyaxon, in-cluster runs, or on external environment (e.g. your local machine).

This section will guide you how to track:

In addition to this high level tracking APIs, when running an experiment/job inside Polyaxon, some paths and other information are exposed:

Installation

$ pip install -U polyaxon-client

for python3

$ pip3 install -U polyaxon-client

Installation in polyaxonfile

If you want to delegate the installation to polyaxon during the build process, add a new step to the run section in your polyaxonfile:
