Test proper installation
To test if TensorBoard is properly installed, check its help page with –help or -h flag. Note TensorBoard doesn’t provide the –version flag as of November, 2015. The –help flag should work under any directory if TensorBoard is properly installed.
$ tensorboard –help
usage: tensorboard [-h] [–logdir LOGDIR] [–debug DEBUG] [–nodebug]
[–host HOST] [–port PORT]
-h, –help show this help message and exit
–logdir LOGDIR logdir specifies where TensorBoard will look to find
TensorFlow event files that it can display. In the simplest
case, logdir is a directory containing tfevents files.
TensorBoard also supports comparing multiple TensorFlow
executions: to do this, you can use directory whose
subdirectories contain tfevents files, as in the following
may also pass a comma seperated list of log directories,
and you can assign names to individual log directories by
putting a colon between the name and the path, as in
–debug DEBUG Whether to run the app in debug mode. This increases log
verbosity to DEBUG.
–host HOST What host to listen to. Defaults to allowing remote access,
set to 127.0.0.1 to serve only on localhost.
–port PORT What port to serve TensorBoard on.
The location of the binary is under direcotry /usr/local/bin.
