Kwargs Handlers

The following objects can be passed to the main Accelerator to customize how some PyTorch objects related to distributed training or mixed precision are created.

DistributedDataParallelKwargs

class accelerate.DistributedDataParallelKwargs

< >

( dim: int = 0 broadcast_buffers: bool = True bucket_cap_mb: int = 25 find_unused_parameters: bool = False check_reduction: bool = False gradient_as_bucket_view: bool = False static_graph: bool = False )

Use this object in your Accelerator to customize how your model is wrapped in a torch.nn.parallel.DistributedDataParallel. Please refer to the documentation of this wrapper for more information on each argument.

gradient_as_bucket_view is only available in PyTorch 1.7.0 and later versions.

static_graph is only available in PyTorch 1.11.0 and later versions.

GradScalerKwargs

class accelerate.GradScalerKwargs

< >

( init_scale: float = 65536.0 growth_factor: float = 2.0 backoff_factor: float = 0.5 growth_interval: int = 2000 enabled: bool = True )

Use this object in your Accelerator to customize the behavior of mixed precision, specifically how the torch.cuda.amp.GradScaler used is created. Please refer to the documentation of this scaler for more information on each argument.

GradScaler is only available in PyTorch 1.5.0 and later versions.

InitProcessGroupKwargs

class accelerate.InitProcessGroupKwargs

< >

( init_method: typing.Optional[str] = None timeout: timedelta = datetime.timedelta(seconds=1800) )

Use this object in your Accelerator to customize the initialization of the distributed processes. Please refer to the documentation of this method for more information on each argument.
