- class torch.optim.lr_scheduler.ReduceLROnPlateau(optimizer, mode='min', factor=0.1, patience=10, threshold=0.0001, threshold_mode='rel', cooldown=0, min_lr=0, eps=1e-08, verbose=False)¶
Reduce learning rate when a metric has stopped improving. Models often benefit from reducing the learning rate by a factor of 2-10 once learning stagnates. This scheduler reads a metrics quantity and if no improvement is seen for a ‘patience’ number of epochs, the learning rate is reduced.
optimizer (Optimizer) – Wrapped optimizer.
mode (str) – One of min, max. In min mode, lr will be reduced when the quantity monitored has stopped decreasing; in max mode it will be reduced when the quantity monitored has stopped increasing. Default: ‘min’.
factor (float) – Factor by which the learning rate will be reduced. new_lr = lr * factor. Default: 0.1.
patience (int) – Number of epochs with no improvement after which learning rate will be reduced. For example, if patience = 2, then we will ignore the first 2 epochs with no improvement, and will only decrease the LR after the 3rd epoch if the loss still hasn’t improved then. Default: 10.
threshold (float) – Threshold for measuring the new optimum, to only focus on significant changes. Default: 1e-4.
threshold_mode (str) – One of rel, abs. In rel mode, dynamic_threshold = best * ( 1 + threshold ) in ‘max’ mode or best * ( 1 - threshold ) in min mode. In abs mode, dynamic_threshold = best + threshold in max mode or best - threshold in min mode. Default: ‘rel’.
cooldown (int) – Number of epochs to wait before resuming normal operation after lr has been reduced. Default: 0.
eps (float) – Minimal decay applied to lr. If the difference between new and old lr is smaller than eps, the update is ignored. Default: 1e-8.
verbose (bool) – If
True, prints a message to stdout for each update. Default:
>>> optimizer = torch.optim.SGD(model.parameters(), lr=0.1, momentum=0.9) >>> scheduler = ReduceLROnPlateau(optimizer, 'min') >>> for epoch in range(10): >>> train(...) >>> val_loss = validate(...) >>> # Note that step should be called after validate() >>> scheduler.step(val_loss)
