When running multiple experiments in parallel I often get the following error:
wandb.sdk.service.service.ServiceStartTimeoutError: Timed out waiting for wandb service to start after 30.0 seconds. Try increasing the timeout with the `_service_wait` setting.
which seems to suggest a solution, but after many attempts I am still unable to increase the timeout! Currently in my
wandb.init I have
settings=wandb.Settings( start_method="fork", init_timeout=600, _service_wait=600, ),
But this has no effect, the timeouts still take place, and the error message says
[...] after 30.0 seconds..
Q: How to increase it?
wandb==0.15.9 but I can update if that helps
PS In this github issue people also mention a solution with env variable, but there is no consensus on whether it works. I would prefer a solution in the python script.
