Creates a dataset that caches elements from input_dataset.

    input_dataset, filename, output_types, output_shapes, name=None

A CacheDataset will iterate over the input_dataset, and store tensors. If the cache already exists, the cache will be used. If the cache is inappropriate (e.g. cannot be opened, contains tensors of the wrong shape / size), an error will the returned when used.


  • input_dataset: A Tensor of type variant.
  • filename: A Tensor of type string. A path on the filesystem where we should cache the dataset. Note: this will be a directory.
  • output_types: A list of tf.DTypes that has length >= 1.
  • output_shapes: A list of shapes (each a tf.TensorShape or list of ints) that has length >= 1.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


A Tensor of type variant.
