summary {SparkR}R Documentation

summary

Description

Computes specified statistics for numeric and string columns. Available statistics are:

If no statistics are given, this function computes count, mean, stddev, min, approximate quartiles (percentiles at 25 This function is meant for exploratory data analysis, as we make no guarantee about the backward compatibility of the schema of the resulting Dataset. If you want to programmatically compute summary statistics, use the agg function instead.

Usage

## S4 method for signature 'SparkDataFrame'
summary(object, ...)

summary(object, ...)

Arguments

object

a SparkDataFrame to be summarized.

...

(optional) statistics to be computed for all columns.

Value

A SparkDataFrame.

Note

summary(SparkDataFrame) since 1.5.0

The statistics provided by summary were change in 2.3.0 use describe for previous defaults.
