Im using an older version 18.104.22.168 of the xgboost R package.
I’ve noticed however, that setting the
print_every_n parameter in
xgb.train with an integer has no effect. I checked the documentary, I even set
verbose=1 explicitly, but this didn’t help either in letting the runs be printed.
Is this a bug? What am I missing?
I know a much newer version is out, but for certain reasons an update is not easily possible. If it was a bug and has been resolved, then I might look for workarounds to upgrade the package.
