Sorry I didn’t find and appropriate post to add this to, hence creating a new one.
On Azure NC6 instance, with the dog breed exercise:
- learn.fit(1e-2, 3, cycle_len=1, cycle_mult=2) -> 52 minutes
- learn.fit(1e-2, 3, cycle_len=1) -> 22 minutes
Are durations expected? Or is too long and thereby pointing to a problem with my environment?
As an aside, I am planning to follow Faster experimentation for better learning for speedup in coding and then finally firing off the full learning later.
