How to print model's parameters with its name and `requires_grad value`?

I want to print model’s parameters with its name. I found two ways to print summary. But I want to use both requires_grad and name at same for loop. Can I do this? I want to check gradients during the training.

for p in model.parameters():
    # p.requires_grad: bool
    # p.data: Tensor

for name, param in model.state_dict().items():
    # name: str
    # param: Tensor

# my fake code
for p in model.parameters():
    if p.requires_grad:
         print(p.name, p.data)

You can try this:

for name, param in model.named_parameters():
    if param.requires_grad:
        print name, param.data

Nice! This is really what I want

You can use the package pytorch-summary.

Example to print all the layer information for VGG:

import torch
from torchvision import models
from torchsummary import summary

device = torch.device('cuda' if torch.cuda.is_available() else 'cpu')
vgg = models.vgg16().to(device)

summary(vgg, (3, 224, 224))

Great, this solves my problem.

Thx a lot
This makes a lot of sense.

This doesn’t work if the model is made of Modules.
