## Using JupyterHub
The easiest way to use TensorBoard is via [JupyterHub](../access/jupyterhub.md). The default
TensorBoard log directory is set to `/tmp/<username>/tf-logs` on the compute node, where Jupyter
session is running. In order to show your own directory with logs, it can be soft-linked to the
default folder. Open a "New Launcher" menu (`Ctrl+Shift+L`) and select "Terminal" session. It
will start new terminal on the respective compute node. Create a directory `/tmp/$USER/tf-logs`
and link it with your log directory
`ln -s <your-tensorboard-target-directory> <local-tf-logs-directory>`
The easiest way to use TensorBoard is via [JupyterHub](../access/jupyterhub.md). By default,
TensorBoard is configured to read log data from `/tmp/<username>/tf-logs` on the compute node on
which the Jupyter session is running. In order to show your own log data from a different directory,
soft-link this directory with `/tmp/<username>/tf-logs` in order to make TensorBoard reading your
log data. Note, that the directory `/tmp/<username>/tf-logs` might not exist and you have to
create it first. Therefore, open a "New Launcher" (`Ctrl+Shift+L`) and select "Terminal" session.
It will start a new terminal on the respective compute node. Then you can create the directory
`/tmp/<username>/tf-logs` and link it with the directory where your own log data is located.
Consider the following commands to do so:
```Bash
mkdir -p /tmp/$USER/tf-logs
