tf.compat.v1.summary.FileWriter

Writes Summary protocol buffers to event files.

The FileWriter class provides a mechanism to create an event file in a given directory and add summaries and events to it. The class updates the file contents asynchronously. This allows a training program to call methods to add data to the file directly from the training loop, without slowing down training.

When constructed with a tf.compat.v1.Session parameter, a FileWriter instead forms a compatibility layer over new graph-based summaries to facilitate the use of new summary writing with pre-existing code that expects a FileWriter instance.

This class is not thread-safe.

logdir A string. Directory where event file will be written.
graph A Graph object, such as sess.graph.
max_queue Integer. Size of the queue for pending events and summaries.
flush_secs Number. How often, in seconds, to flush the pending events and summaries to disk.
graph_def DEPRECATED: Use the graph argument instead.
filename_suffix A string. Every event file's name is suffixed with suffix.
session A tf.compat.v1.Session object. See details above.

RuntimeError If called with eager execution enabled.

Methods

add_event

View source

Adds an event to the event file.

Args
event An Event protocol buffer.

add_graph

View source

Adds a Graph to the event file.

The graph described by the protocol buffer will be displayed by TensorBoard. Most users pass a graph in the constructor instead.

Args
graph A Graph object, such as sess.graph.
global_step Number. Optional global step counter to record with the graph.
graph_def DEPRECATED. Use the graph parameter instead.

Raises
ValueError If both graph and graph_def are passed to the method.

add_meta_graph

View source

Adds a MetaGraphDef to the event file.

The MetaGraphDef allows running the given graph via saver.import_meta_graph().

Args
meta_graph_def A MetaGraphDef object, often as returned by saver.export_meta_graph().
global_step Number. Optional global step counter to record with the graph.

Raises
TypeError If both meta_graph_def is not an instance of MetaGraphDef.

add_run_metadata

View source

Adds a metadata information for a single session.run() call.

Args
run_metadata A RunMetadata protobuf object.
tag The tag name for this metadata.
global_step Number. Optional global step counter to record with the StepStats.

Raises
ValueError If the provided tag was already used for this type of event.

add_session_log

View source

Adds a SessionLog protocol buffer to the event file.

This method wraps the provided session in an Event protocol buffer and adds it to the event file.

Args
session_log A SessionLog protocol buffer.
global_step Number. Optional global step value to record with the summary.

add_summary

View source

Adds a Summary protocol buffer to the event file.

This method wraps the provided summary in an Event protocol buffer and adds it to the event file.

You can pass the result of evaluating any summary op, using tf.Session.run or tf.Tensor.eval, to this function. Alternatively, you can pass a tf.compat.v1.Summary protocol buffer that you populate with your own data. The latter is commonly done to report evaluation results in event files.

Args
summary A Summary protocol buffer, optionally serialized as a string.
global_step Number. Optional global step value to record with the summary.

close

View source

Flushes the event file to disk and close the file.

Call this method when you do not need the summary writer anymore.

flush

View source

Flushes the event file to disk.

Call this method to make sure that all pending events have been written to disk.

get_logdir

View source

Returns the directory where event file will be written.

reopen

View source

Reopens the EventFileWriter.

Can be called after close() to add more events in the same directory. The events will go into a new events file.

Does nothing if the EventFileWriter was not closed.

__enter__
