Saves the model that you just trained.

Argument and Default Value



If you are running a command that creates/trains a model, using this will tell the infrastructure to save the model. This switch requires the use of --picklefile. After saving the model, you can use the file using --load_model.

See one of these three for more info:

It is important to name your descriptively name your file. For example, you should include the outcome and features the model was built on. When applying the model you must specify the feature tables in the same order as when the model was created, so if this is reflected in your file name then it will save you time in the future.
