@nh78 Leave it unchanged if you don't care about tracking what you contribute.

If you really insist, then create a new nick (perhaps the one you chose already exists -- or you mistakenly registered it before with a different password).

@dudeski_robinson @BigGreenShrek

Oh well, i am stupid, i indeed registered 'nh78' before (when trying out client.exe) and forgot it. Ok. Now i ran this once again with nick 'nh78' and the correct password and filmed that:

As you see, as long as the tab is open, quite much traffic happens, if i assume 5 kilobytes per second (i dont know if upload and download accumulate, if so, it would be around 10 kb) then it will have exhausted my complete internet volumina of 5.5 GB per month - 15 Euros - after around 13 days, if i let it run non stop. Which means i would have to pay around 60 Euros in order to let it run for the whole month.

When i close the tab, as done in the video, the traffic immediately goes to zero and it indeed keeps playing - the games are uploaded to http://lczero.org/. Meanwhile 45 games for 'nh78' there.

When this has stopped i will retry this in order to check with browser dev tools what is causing the traffic. Forgot to do this.

playing against leelazero on the website, only easy and normal work, hard mode she doesn't make a move! Fix please!

Ok, first, it seems to stop after around 80 games, second, the traffic is caused by tons of XHR request duos, one just contains some weird bracket nonsense and the other seems to be the move data.

i will check again when this session has stopped, because i forgot that chrome closes the network log too when i close the tab ...

@Sneakmasterflex i have this too currently, probably too much traffic.

@nh78 That's very strange. I am sorry for misleading you. I honestly thought there would be no traffic.

Have you tried the Google Cloud script? There shouldn't be any traffic there, since you can close the tab and it will run for months (until your free credits run out).

@BigGreenShrek i currently just close the tab and rerun this every two hours.

I found out that the traffic is caused by updating moves in the bottommost cell - which i do not need. My Browser sends the complete content of the bottommost cell every second as XHR request [1]. The response.content is always ")]}'\n[]" (i think this is a security thing related to JSON, the relevant parts of the response seem to be the cookies and stuff).

"Have you tried the Google Cloud script?"

This requires my bank account details. I would prefer if instead someone could provide a solution to the above problem, aka how to stop the logging.

This is very, very inefficient.

@nh78

What if you change the last line to:

!cd leela-chess/build && ./client_linux --user 'Google Colab' --password googlecolab &> myfile.txt

Does this suppress the output?

Or maybe:

!cd leela-chess/build && nohup ./client_linux --user 'Google Colab' --password googlecolab &

@BigGreenShrek thanks for your Linux commandline Kung Fu

i tried these both, the first runs, then stops after a second - unfortunately no games are created :-(

The second throws an error that background processes are not supported and the symbol gets red (which probably means that an error happened).

@nh78 Try:

!cd leela-chess/build && ./client_linux --user 'Google Colab' --password googlecolab > myfile.txt

This suppresses most output. There is a message produced when each game concludes.

Beyond that I'm not sure what to do. Perhaps someone more technically skilled can chime in. My belief was that the ">" would suppress *all* output, which does not seem to be the case.

Try getting rid of the bang - "!" - at the beginning of the command, and instead insert a blank line at the top and "%% bash" there.

It will suppress all output except summary data, which won't occur at all in the cell that outputs moves.
