Why do I have an army of wandb files everywhere? It's overwhelming my disk quota

I think this was caused by wandb

I have this:

# - use local machine as home, can't start with cd because like in .bashrc.user since we need to figure out local path in lfs
#export LOCAL_MACHINE_PWD=$(python3 -c "import socket;hostname=socket.gethostname().split('.')[0];print(f'/lfs/{hostname}/0/brando9');")
export LOCAL_MACHINE_PWD=$(python3 -c "import socket;hostname=socket.gethostname().split('.')[0];print('/lfs/'+str(hostname)+'/0/brando9');")

is it wrong?

Also, why would it take 11T of info?

(mds_env_gpu) brando9~ $ df -h /lfs/hyperturing2/0/brando9/
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/md127       11T   11T   48M 100% /lfs/hyperturing2/0

Hi @brando thanks for reporting this issue. Could you please clarify in which files/directories are you referring to?

The pymp-* folders seem to be coming from the multiprocessing python package, and it’s an issue that has been addressed in certain Python versions, what’s your current one? However, the tmp<run-id>wandb are definitely created by wandb, could you please output disk usage per directory to see what’s actually related with wandb ones?

Hi @brando I wanted to follow up with you and see if you could provide us any further information requested in the previous message, so that we could understand what caused this issue for you. Thanks!

Hi @brando since we haven’t heard back from you, I will go ahead and close this ticket for now. Please let us now though if the issue persists for you, and we will be happy to keep investigating!
