Paperspace - start-up v slow


(Andy Bell) #1

Hi…

I have followed these instructions to set myself up on Paperspace: https://github.com/reshamas/fastai_deeplearn_part1/blob/master/tools/paperspace.md

When I first log on, the console starts in a few seconds.

After I implement step three (updating the fastai repo contents) the console takes 10mins+ plus to start up. Is that normal?

I’ve tried creating a new machine in a new geography, but the same problem reoccurs.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any advice. I’m a complete newbie, so feel free to state what might seem obvious.

Hi Andy,
I had the same problem with mine (except mine was on the initial setup). I emailed support and they told me to SSH into the machine (which I had no idea what that meant). If you’re working on a Windows machine, download PuTTY (https://www.putty.org/), which will allow you to SSH into the public IP address assigned to your machine. Then enter your password and launch Jupyter notebook and work as needed.

I hope this helps!

Hi Walt

Thanks very much. That seems to help a bit (it’s still slow, but faster than waiting for the console).

Cheers
