Configure Debugger Monitoring Hardware System Resource Utilization - Amazon SageMaker

Configure Debugger Monitoring Hardware System Resource Utilization

To adjust Debugger system monitoring time intervals, use the ProfilerConfig API operation to create a parameter object while constructing a SageMaker framework or generic estimator depending on your preference.


By default, for all SageMaker training jobs, Debugger collects hardware system utilization data from Amazon EC2 instances every 500 milliseconds for system monitoring, without any Debugger-specific parameters specified in SageMaker estimators.

Debugger saves the system metrics in a default S3 bucket. The format of the default S3 bucket URI is s3://sagemaker-<region>-<12digit_account_id>/<training-job-name>/profiler-output/.

The following example code shows how to set up the profiler_config parameter with a system monitoring time interval of 1000 milliseconds.

from sagemaker.debugger import ProfilerConfig profiler_config=ProfilerConfig( system_monitor_interval_millis=1000 )
  • system_monitor_interval_millis (int) – Specify the monitoring intervals in milliseconds to record system metrics. Available values are 100, 200, 500, 1000 (1 second), 5000 (5 seconds), and 60000 (1 minute) milliseconds. The default value is 500 milliseconds.
