Provides a set of functions to launch a grid search and get its results.
h2o.grid( algorithm, grid_id, x, y, training_frame, ..., hyper_params = list(), is_supervised = NULL, do_hyper_params_check = FALSE, search_criteria = NULL, export_checkpoints_dir = NULL, parallelism = 1 )
algorithm  Name of algorithm to use in grid search (gbm, randomForest, kmeans, glm, deeplearning, naivebayes, pca). 

grid_id  (Optional) ID for resulting grid search. If it is not specified then it is autogenerated. 
x  (Optional) A vector containing the names or indices of the predictor variables to use in building the model. If x is missing, then all columns except y are used. 
y  The name or column index of the response variable in the data. The response must be either a numeric or a categorical/factor variable. If the response is numeric, then a regression model will be trained, otherwise it will train a classification model. 
training_frame  Id of the training data frame. 
...  arguments describing parameters to use with algorithm (i.e., x, y, training_frame). Look at the specific algorithm  h2o.gbm, h2o.glm, h2o.kmeans, h2o.deepLearning  for available parameters. 
hyper_params  List of lists of hyper parameters (i.e., 
is_supervised  (Optional) If specified then override the default heuristic which decides if the given algorithm name and parameters specify a supervised or unsupervised algorithm. 
do_hyper_params_check  Perform client check for specified hyper parameters. It can be time expensive for large hyper space. 
search_criteria  (Optional) List of control parameters for smarter hyperparameter search. The list can
include values for: strategy, max_models, max_runtime_secs, stopping_metric, stopping_tolerance, stopping_rounds and
seed. The default strategy 'Cartesian' covers the entire space of hyperparameter combinations. If you want to use
cartesian grid search, you can leave the search_criteria argument unspecified. Specify the "RandomDiscrete" strategy
to get random search of all the combinations of your hyperparameters with three ways of specifying when to stop the
search: max number of models, max time, and metricbased early stopping (e.g., stop if MSE has not improved by 0.0001
over the 5 best models). Examples below:

export_checkpoints_dir  Directory to automatically export grid in binary form to. 
parallelism  Level of Parallelism during grid model building. 1 = sequential building (default). Use the value of 0 for adaptive parallelism  decided by H2O. Any number > 1 sets the exact number of models built in parallel. 
Launch grid search with given algorithm and parameters.
