Small helper to get the global step.

Aliases:

  • tf.compat.v1.train.global_step
tf.train.global_step(
    sess,
    global_step_tensor
)
# Create a variable to hold the global_step.
global_step_tensor = tf.Variable(10, trainable=False, name='global_step')
# Create a session.
sess = tf.compat.v1.Session()
# Initialize the variable
sess.run(global_step_tensor.initializer)
# Get the variable value.
print('global_step: %s' % tf.compat.v1.train.global_step(sess,
global_step_tensor))

global_step: 10

Args:

  • sess: A TensorFlow Session object.
  • global_step_tensor: Tensor or the name of the operation that contains the global step.

Returns:

The global step value.
