See the guide: Summary Operations > Generation of Summaries

Outputs a Summary protocol buffer with a histogram.

The generated Summary has one summary value containing a histogram for values.

This op reports an InvalidArgument error if any value is not finite.


  • name: A name for the generated node. Will also serve as a series name in TensorBoard.
  • values: A real numeric Tensor. Any shape. Values to use to build the histogram.
  • collections: Optional list of graph collections keys. The new summary op is added to these collections. Defaults to [GraphKeys.SUMMARIES].


A scalar Tensor of type string. The serialized Summary protocol buffer.
