Background execution

During training using auto train I switched to VPN and my space auto paused. Is there way to continue where training was stopped or enable background execution until an error or done even with a closed url of the space??

i dont think auto-pausing of space is related to vpn. a training space will auto-pause when training is finished (or encountered an error). you can see the logs by clicking the logs button in the paused space. the training runs even when you have closed the tab/window.

@abhishek I’ve looked through logs, there was “network error”. Is there a way I can see that run logs somewhere to analyse them again?

refreshing clears the message network error, else please provide space id and we can look internally.

@abhishek, I don’t know what do you mean under refreshing. Its ok, I have restarted, just wanted to clarify, better use your time on something more important.

no. i just meant ctrl+r, but anyways, lets see if it works now. btw, if it worked previously, you could also see the models in your account.

Oh that’s bad, there’s no verification at the start. So I have spent processing time to see that my model can’t be saved

did your project name consist of a “/” ?

Yes seems like I have accidentally copy-pasted full path to the space instead of just space name. But this validation should be at the beginning I think not after an hour of training at saving.

indeed. ill add it. thanks for reporting.
