Disable dashboard

I wonder if it’s possible to disable the dashboard. I’m launching many processes that use dask distributed simultaneously across a cluster and I want to eliminate the annoying warning of “Port 8787 is already in use.”. I tried to set “dashboard_address = None” in LocalCluster creation as documented, but it doesn’t work as reported in this GitHub issue. Is there another way to disable the dashboard or do I have to set the dashboard address manually to different ports in each process?


Hi @federico,

Actually, the Dashboard is disabled, but an HTTP server is started anyway… As long as the bug reported in the issue you mentionned is not solved, there is no way to really prevent this server to be started. I encourage you to weight in if you want this issue solved.
