Options for generating statistics.

Used in the notebooks

Used in the tutorials

generators An optional list of statistics generators. A statistics generator must extend either CombinerStatsGenerator or TransformStatsGenerator.
feature_whitelist DEPRECATED. Use feature_allowlist instead.
schema An optional tensorflow_metadata Schema proto. Currently we use the schema to infer categorical and bytes features.
label_feature An optional feature name which represents the label.
weight_feature An optional feature name whose numeric value represents the weight of an example.
slice_functions An optional list of functions that generate slice keys for each example. Each slice function should take an example dict as input and return a list of zero or more slice keys.
sample_rate An optional sampling rate. If specified, statistics is computed over the sample.
num_top_values An optional number of most frequent feature values to keep for string features.
frequency_threshold An optional minimum number of examples the most frequent values must be present in.
weighted_frequency_threshold An optional minimum weighted number of examples the most frequent weighted values must be present in. This option is only relevant when a weight_feature is specified.
num_rank_histogram_buckets An optional number of buckets in the rank histogram for string features.
num_values_histogram_buckets An optional number of buckets in a quantiles histogram for the number of values per Feature, which is stored in CommonStatistics.num_values_histogram.
num_histogram_buckets An optional number of buckets in a standard NumericStatistics.histogram with equal-width buckets.
num_quantiles_histogram_buckets An optional number of buckets in a quantiles NumericStatistics.histogram.
epsilon An optional error tolerance for the computation of quantiles, typically a small fraction close to zero (e.g. 0.01). Higher values of epsilon increase the quantile approximation, and hence result in more unequal buckets, but could improve performance, and resource consumption.
infer_type_from_schema A boolean to indicate whether the feature types should be inferred from the schema. If set to True, an input schema must be provided. This flag is used only when generating statistics on CSV data.
desired_batch_size An optional number of examples to include in each batch that is passed to the statistics generators.
enable_semantic_domain_stats If True statistics for semantic domains are generated (e.g: image, text domains).
semantic_domain_stats_sample_rate An optional sampling rate for semantic domain statistics. If specified, semantic domain statistics is computed over a sample.
per_feature_weight_override If specified, the "example weight" paired with a feature will be first looked up in this map and if not found, fall back to weight_feature.
vocab_paths An optional dictionary mapping vocab names to paths. Used in the schema when specifying a NaturalLanguageDomain. The paths can either be to GZIP-compressed TF record files that have a tfrecord.gz suffix or to text files.
add_default_generators Whether to invoke the default set of stats generators in the run. Generators invoked consists of 1) the default generators (controlled by this option); 2) user-provided generators ( controlled by the generators option); 3) semantic generators (controlled by enable_semantic_domain_stats) and 4) schema-based generators that are enabled based on information provided in the schema.
feature_allowlist An optional list of names of the features to calculate statistics for.

Construct an instance of stats options from a JSON representation.

options_json A JSON representation of the dict attribute of a StatsOptions instance.

A StatsOptions instance constructed by setting the dict attribute to the deserialized value of options_json.

Convert from an object to JSON representation of the dict attribute.

Custom generators and slice_functions are skipped, meaning that they will not be used when running TFDV in a setting where the stats options have been json-serialized, first. This will happen in the case where TFDV is run as a TFX component. The schema proto will be json_encoded.

A JSON representation of a filtered version of dict.
