guild select [OPTIONS] [RUN...]
Select a run and shows its ID.
This command is generally used when specifying a run ID for another Guild command. For example, to restart the latest
`guild run --restart $(guild select -o train)`
You may specify a run using a run ID, a run ID prefix, or a one-based index corresponding to a run returned by the
If RUN isn’t specified, the latest matching run is selected.
To select the run with the lowest or highest column value, use
--max respectively. For example, to select the run with the lowest
loss scalar value, use
For help with COLSPEC formatting, see
COLUMN SPECS in
compare help by running
guild compare --help.
Other run filters are applied before selecting a minimum or maximium scalar value.
Runs may be filtered by operation using
--operation. A run is only included if any part of its full operation name, including the package and model name, matches the value.
--operation multiple times to include more runs.
--label to only include runs with labels containing a specified value. To select runs that do not contain a label, specify a dash ‘-’ for
--label multiple times to include more runs.
--tag to only include runs with a specified tag. Tags must match completely and are case sensitive.
--tag multiple times to include more runs.
--marked to only include marked runs.
--unmarked to only include unmarked runs. This option may not be used with
--filter to limit runs that match a filter expressions. Filter expressions compare run attributes, flag values, or scalars to target values. They may include multiple expressions with logical operators.
For example, to match runs with flag
batch-size equal to 100 that have
loss less than 0.8, use:
--filter 'batch-size = 10 and loss < 0.8'
IMPORTANT: You must quote EXPR if it contains spaces or characters that the shell uses (e.g. ‘<’ or ‘>’).
Target values may be numbers, strings or lists containing numbers and strings. Strings that contain spaces must be quoted, otherwise a target string values does not require quotes. Lists are defined using square braces where each item is separated by a comma.
Comparisons may use the following operators: ‘=’, ‘!=’ (or ‘<>’), ‘<’, ‘<=’, ‘>’, ‘>=’. Text comparisons may use ‘contains’ to test for case-insensitive string membership. A value may be tested for membership or not in a list using ‘in’ or ‘not in’ respectively. An value may be tested for undefined using ‘is undefined’ or defined using ‘is not undefined’.
Logical operators include ‘or’ and ‘and’. An expression may be negated by preceding it with ‘not’. Parentheses may be used to control the order of precedence when expressions are evaluated.
If a value reference matches more than one type of run information (e.g. a flag is named ‘label’, which is also a run attribute), the value is read in order of run attribute, then flag value, then scalar. To disambiguate the reference, use a prefix
scalar: as needed. For example, to filter using a flag value named ‘label’, use ‘flag:label’.
operation = train and acc > 0.9
operation = train and (acc > 0.9 or loss < 0.3)
batch-size = 100 or batch-size = 200
batch-size in [100,200]
batch-size not in [400,800]
batch-size is undefined
batch-size is not undefined
label contains best and operation not in [test,deploy]
status in [error,terminated]
NOTE: Comments and tags are not supported in filter expressions at this time. Use
--tag options along with filter expressions to further refine a selection.
--started to limit runs to those that have started within a specified time range.
IMPORTANT: You must quote RANGE values that contain spaces. For example, to filter runs started within the last hour, use the option:
--started 'last hour'
You can specify a time range using several different forms:
between DATETIME and DATETIME
last N minutes|hours|days
N days|weeks|months|years ago
DATETIME may be specified as a date in the format
YY-MM-DD (the leading
YY- may be omitted) or as a time in the format
HH:MM (24 hour clock). A date and time may be specified together as
between DATETIME and DATETIME, values for
DATETIME may be specified in either order.
When specifying values like
hours the trailing
s may be omitted to improve readability. You may also use
min instead of
hr instead of
between 1-1 and 4-30
between 10:00 and 15:00
last 30 min
last 6 hours
3 weeks ago
To show runs for a specific source code digest, use
--digest with a complete or partial digest value.
Runs may also be filtered by specifying one or more status filters:
--terminated. These may be used together to include runs that match any of the filters. For example to only include runs that were either terminated or exited with an error, use
--terminated --error, or the short form
You may combine more than one status character with
-S to expand the filter. For example,
-Set shows only runs with terminated or error status.
Status filters are applied before
RUN indexes are resolved. For example, a run index of
1 is the latest run that matches the status filters.
