DataArray.compute(self, **kwargs) → 'DataArray'

Manually trigger loading of this array’s data from disk or a remote source into memory and return a new array. The original is left unaltered.

Normally, it should not be necessary to call this method in user code, because all xarray functions should either work on deferred data or load data automatically. However, this method can be necessary when working with many file objects on disk.


**kwargs (dict) – Additional keyword arguments passed on to dask.array.compute.
