Launching More Agents in HP Sweep

The documentation shows how, once the sweep is running, we can spawn off more agents.

But I can’t figure out a way to get to that actual page and do it.

If I open the “Sweeps” tab, I see the button “Create Sweep”, but I’m not sure that’s what I’m looking to do (right?). I want to launch a new agent of this sweep, not an entirely new sweep.

Can I simply run the same code on multiple machines, and will it automatically know (through the same project name?) to combine all those runs in the same overall sweep?

Thanks for flagging this! Allow me to replicate the issue on my end to help debug.

I’ll give it a spin tonight and get back to you by tomorrow evening :slight_smile:

@max_wasserman You should be able to launch agents from an existing sweep as specified in the docs here.
wandb agent command would require you to pass in a sweep_id ( which you’ll have as the sweep is up & running).
