Session Management

GraphLab Create manages local references to your Jobs and Environments in a local session. These local references can be persisted to disk, allowing you to resume and modify your work at a later time. Put another way, GraphLab Create makes it easy to recall previous work, maintaining a history and a workbench that facilitate incremental modifications over time.

Because these objects are persisted they must have unique names, so the session can keep track of them.

List

To visualize all Jobs, run:

gl.deploy.jobs.show()

Jobs dashboard

This will show the overall dashboard for all Jobs known in the workbench.

To see all Environments known in the workbench.

gl.deploy.environments
Environment(s):

For programmatic access:

gl.deploy.jobs.list() # returns an SFrame of jobs
gl.deploy.predictive_services.list() # returns an SFrame of predictive services
gl.deploy.environments.list() # returns an SFrame of environments
Load

We can use either the index of the job in the session, or the name, to load a persisted job in the current session.

print gl.deploy.jobs

[9 rows x 4 columns]

To load the first job at index "0":

job = gl.deploy.jobs[0]

To load the job named "sleep_long3":

job = gl.deploy.jobs['sleep_long3']
Delete

We can also use the index or the name to delete a job from the current session.

del gl.deploy.jobs[0]
# or
gl.deploy.jobs.delete[0]
del gl.deploy.jobs['sleep_long3']
# or
gl.deploy.jobs.delete['sleep_long3']
