Extract inner tuning results of nested resampling. Implemented for mlr3::ResampleResult and mlr3::BenchmarkResult.


extract_inner_tuning_results(x, tuning_instance, ...)

# S3 method for ResampleResult
extract_inner_tuning_results(x, tuning_instance = FALSE, ...)

# S3 method for BenchmarkResult
extract_inner_tuning_results(x, tuning_instance = FALSE, ...)



(mlr3::ResampleResult | mlr3::BenchmarkResult).


If TRUE, tuning instances are added to the table.


Additional arguments.


The function iterates over the AutoTuner objects and binds the tuning results to a data.table::data.table(). The AutoTuner must be initialized with store_tuning_instance = TRUE and mlr3::resample() or mlr3::benchmark() must be called with store_models = TRUE. Optionally, the tuning instance can be added for each iteration.

Data structure

The returned data table has the following columns:

  • experiment (integer(1))
    Index, giving the according row number in the original benchmark grid.

  • iteration (integer(1))
    Iteration of the outer resampling.

  • One column for each hyperparameter of the search spaces.

  • One column for each performance measure.

  • learner_param_vals (list())
    Hyperparameter values used by the learner. Includes fixed and proposed hyperparameter values.

  • x_domain (list())
    List of transformed hyperparameter values.

  • tuning_instance (TuningInstanceSingleCrit | TuningInstanceMultiCrit)
    Optionally, tuning instances.

  • task_id (character(1)).

  • learner_id (character(1)).

  • resampling_id (character(1)).
