I’m hoping to get some help. Say I have 2 machines: local and remote. Remote has a server running and I want to use my local to connect and interact with it. How might I go about doing this?
So, the server would have something like
authenticate_client(information) while True: cmd = accept_cmd_from_client() bla = cmd_handler(cmd)
and the client would have stuff like
# Cell 1: server_obj = connect_to_server(auth args) # Cell 2 import numpy import blabla # Cell 3 user_cmd = "Train" server_obj.send_command(user_cmd) # - stuff runs on the server and information gets piped back here
Receiving commands from client - I imagine that I will receive some payload which I can then extract?
Compute progress - the computations I am doing are slow. Ideally, I’d like to send information back to the client so they know that things are working in the background (cell 3)
Data back to client - how would I go about sending the results of the compute back to the client?
How do I go about accepting a command from a user, parsing it to determine if I should handle it, or let the existing code handle it? (The other side of Q.1 in the server)
How do I make the notebook wait for data to flow in from the server - both streaming, and a single result?(the other side of 2 and 3 respectively)
I’ve done some searching and I found extending the notebook but I don’t think it’s what I want. I’d really appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction? I don’t know what I don’t know here
