Save xgboost model to binary file

Save xgboost model to a file in binary format.

Usage
xgb.save(model, fname)
Arguments
model

model object of xgb.Booster class.

fname

name of the file to write.

Details

This methods allows to save a model in an xgboost-internal binary format which is universal among the various xgboost interfaces. In R, the saved model file could be read-in later using either the xgb.load function or the xgb_model parameter of xgb.train.

Note: a model can also be saved as an R-object (e.g., by using readRDS or save). However, it would then only be compatible with R, and corresponding R-methods would need to be used to load it.
