tf.summary.histogram(

)


See the guide: Summary Operations > Generation of Summaries

Outputs a Summary protocol buffer with a histogram.

Adding a histogram summary makes it possible to visualize your data's distribution in TensorBoard. You can see a detailed explanation of the TensorBoard histogram dashboard here.

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

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

#### Args:

• 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].
• family: Optional; if provided, used as the prefix of the summary tag name, which controls the tab name used for display on Tensorboard.

#### Returns:

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