I am currently training a dataset using yolov4 darknet from AlexeyAB Github found here: https://github.com/AlexeyAB/darknet

The dataset I am training is called FishNet Open Images. The dataset has 86,029 images with 5 bounding boxes in each image. It has 34 classes. Currently, I am at 1561 iterations and the training quickly dipped from an avg error loss of around 2000 now to 0.000 rather quickly. Is this supposed to be normal? I feel like I am doing something wrong! I am using around 85% of the images as training set and the other 15% as an validation set.

I have my train.txt and test.txt file correct and my obj.data correct. I changed the annotations to yolo format and configured the .cfg file like below

You have filters = 117 before the Yolo layers. Since you have classes=3 then filters needs to be 24 before the 3 Yolo layers.
