Explain metrics displayed in WandB

Hello there!

I’m looking for a thorough explanation of all the plots displayed in a basic WandB dashboard, such as:

  • train/loss
  • train/global_step
  • train/train_samples_per_second
  • train/train_loss
    Mainly, I’m looking for practical info, e.g. “a lower train/train_loss is better”, to be able to diagnose my model runs.


Hi Francis!

Are you using any integrations with wandb? :slight_smile:
Are those the only three plots you are curious about?
