SMAC automatically restores states where it left off if a run was interrupted or finished. To do so, it reads in old files (derived from scenario’s name, output_directory and seed) and sets the components.


If you changed any code and specified a name, SMAC will ask you whether you still want to resume or delete the old run completely. If you did not specify a name, SMAC generates a new name and the old run is not affected.

Please have a look at our continue example.
