Error: unrecognized arguments: --local_rank=1

I have single machine with two GPUs.This errors occurred when I used this command ‘CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=1,0 python -m torch.distributed.launch --nproc_per_node=2 train.py’ train my model parallelly.
Here’s my code, could anyone help me?

The launcher will pass a --local_rank arg to your train.py script, so you need to add that to the ArgumentParser.

Besides. you need to pass that rank, and world_size, and init_method (which basically contains MASTER_ADDR and MASTER_PORT) to dist.init_process_group either through arguments or env vars.

This example might be helpful: https://github.com/pytorch/examples/pull/743

I also met this problem, but I didn’t understand the answer upstairs. How did you solve this problem?
thank you

The the error mentioned in the original post basically means that the launcher script tries to pass --local_rank=1 as an argument to your script (i.e., train.py in this case). However, train.py is not configured to accept that argument.

train.py: error: unrecognized arguments: --local_rank=1

To solve this issue, you can add the following to your ArgumentParser.

parser.add_argument("--local_rank", type=int, default=0)

thanks.but after i add parser.add_argument("–local_rank", type=int, default=0),this errors also occurred.
