Machine management

This page provides information about how to manage machines running for your your notebooks.

Manage the machine for the currently opened notebook

Go to Main menu | Run or open the command palette by pressing Ctrl + Shift + A. You have the following options:

Action

Description

Start machine

Restarts the machine. This may take some time as it restarts all required processes and installs your custom libraries.

Stop machine

Stops 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.

Change machine

Used to switch to another machine. Your options are: Basic, Large, and GPU.

Background computation

Keeps 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 machines

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 machine

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

    Running machines tab
  2. To stop a machine, click the Stop button for the respective list item. After that, the stopped machine is removed from the list.
