Job Monitoring

2m 29s

This lesson looks at the process of converting notebooks into scripts and then running those scripts from the command line. This involves converting notebook cells to a script, preparing code for production, and using the Python SDK to create a command job. Jobs’ parameters, metrics, artifacts, and models can be monitored and logged with MLFlow. This lesson looks at the ways this is achieved and how to view the logged elements via scripts and Azure Machine Learning Studio.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand how to convert a Jupyter Notebook into a script
  • Practice running a script as a command
  • Use MLflow to log model training

Intended Audience
