)


See the guide: Summary Operations > Generation of Summaries

Outputs a Summary protocol buffer with a serialized tensor.proto.

#### Args:

• name: A name for the generated node. If display_name is not set, it will also serve as the tag name in TensorBoard. (In that case, the tag name will inherit tf name scopes.)
• tensor: A tensor of any type and shape to serialize.
• summary_description: A long description of the summary sequence. Markdown is supported.
• collections: Optional list of graph collections keys. The new summary op is added to these collections. Defaults to [GraphKeys.SUMMARIES].
• summary_metadata: Optional SummaryMetadata proto (which describes which plugins may use the summary value).
• family: Optional; if provided, used as the prefix of the summary tag, which controls the name used for display on TensorBoard when display_name is not set.
• display_name: A string used to name this data in TensorBoard. If this is not set, then the node name will be used instead.

#### Returns:

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