Computation

This section provides information about managing the computation of your notebooks.

Computation of the currently opened notebook

To manage the computation of the notebook in the opened tab, go to Main menu | Run or open the command palette by pressing Ctrl + Shift + A. You have the following options:

ActionDescription
Stop computationStops all processes on the machine. Most often used when:
  • The kernel keeps crashing.

  • You are not planning to run any code or use smart coding assistance. You want to work with your Markdown cells and save computation time.

Start computationRestarts the machine. This may take some time as it restarts all required processes and installs your custom libraries.
Reactive modeEnables live computation. All your code updates are recalculated on the fly, while the unaffected cells are skipped.
Background computationKeeps the computation running after the tab is closed. This option allows you to close your notebook at any point without losing your computation progress.

Manage all running computations

At some point, you may have to stop some of your running computations. The most common reason is reaching the limit of parallel computations. Another reason is saving your resources if they are consumed too intensively after you shared the respective notebook.

Stop any running computation

  1. Click the avatar icon in the upper-right corner of the Home page or editor screen and select Running computations to open the dialog with the list of computations.

    Running computations

  2. To stop a computation, click the Stop button for the respective list item. After that, the computation is removed from the list.
