If a SMAC run was interrupted or you want to extend its computation- or
time-limits, it can be restored and continued.
To restore or continue a previous SMAC run, use the
--restore_state FOLDER option in the commandline. If you want to increase
computation- or time-limits, change the scenario-file specified with the
--scenario SCENARIOFILE option (not the one in the folder to be restored).
Restarting a SMAC run that quit due to budget-exhaustion will do nothing,
because the budget is still exhausted.
Changing any other options than
tuner-timeout in the scenario-file is NOT intended and will likely lead
to unexpected behaviour!
For an example of restoring states from within your Python code, there is an implementation with the Branin-example in “examples/quickstart/branin/restore_state.py”.
