External Converter

This guide will show you how to convert your models to Anakin models.

Introduction

Before using Anakin, you must convert your models to Anakin ones. If you don't, Anakin won't work properly.

Requirements

  • python 2.7+
  • pyyaml
  • flask

Downloading Converter Source

git clone https://xxxxxxxxx

Usage

1. Configuration

Configure your config.yaml file. Find example config.yaml file in the converter source directory. The example below explains how to configure your config.yaml file.

Caffe Case

OPTIONS:
    Framework: CAFFE # select a target dl-framework you want parsing
    SavePath: ./output
    ResultName: googlenet # the name you want when saving the parsed model
    Config:
        LaunchBoard: ON  # should be on if you want to launch graph board
        Server:
            ip: 0.0.0.0
            port: 8888
        OptimizedGraph:  # only enable(set enable(ON) and path) when you have optimized graph model.
            enable: ON
            path: /path/to/anakin_optimized_anakin_model/googlenet.anakin.bin.saved
    LOGGER:
        LogToPath: ./log/ # the path where log
        WithColor: ON  # colorful log message

TARGET:
    CAFFE:
        # path to proto files
        ProtoPaths:
            - /path/to/caffe/src/caffe/proto/caffe.proto
        PrototxtPath: /path/to/your/googlenet.prototxt
        ModelPath: /path/to/your/googlenet.caffemodel
   
	# not support yet 
    PADDLE:
        # path to proto files   
        ProtoPath:
            - /path/to/proto_0
            - /path/to/proto_1
            - /path/to/proto_n
        PrototxtPath: /path/to/prototxt
        ModelPath: /path/to/model
	# ... 

2. Converting

After finishing configuration , you just need to call python script python converter.py to complete transfromation.

3. Launching dash board

Anakin external converter will be launched on site http://0.0.0.0:8888 (configurable). Then open you browser and search http://0.0.0.0:8888, amazing things will happen!

if you set ip to 0.0.0.0 in remote server, you need to open local browser and search the server real ip:port, not the 0.0.0.0.
