  • DatasetImportJobArns - The dataset import jobs used to import training data.
  • AutoMLAlgorithmArns - If AutoML is performed, the algorithms that were evaluated.
  • CreationTime
  • LastModificationTime
  • Status
  • Message - If an error occurred, information about the error.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  describe-predictor
--predictor-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--predictor-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the predictor that you want information about.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

The ARN of the predictor.

PredictorName -> (string)

The name of the predictor.

AlgorithmArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the algorithm used for model training.

Whether the predictor is set to perform AutoML.

PerformHPO -> (boolean)

Whether the predictor is set to perform hyperparameter optimization (HPO).

TrainingParameters -> (map)

The default training parameters or overrides selected during model training. If using the AutoML algorithm or if HPO is turned on while using the DeepAR+ algorithms, the optimized values for the chosen hyperparameters are returned. For more information, see aws-forecast-choosing-recipes .

key -> (string)

value -> (string)

EvaluationParameters -> (structure)

Used to override the default evaluation parameters of the specified algorithm. Amazon Forecast evaluates a predictor by splitting a dataset into training data and testing data. The evaluation parameters define how to perform the split and the number of iterations.

NumberOfBacktestWindows -> (integer)

The number of times to split the input data. The default is 1. Valid values are 1 through 5.

BackTestWindowOffset -> (integer)

The point from the end of the dataset where you want to split the data for model training and testing (evaluation). Specify the value as the number of data points. The default is the value of the forecast horizon. BackTestWindowOffset can be used to mimic a past virtual forecast start date. This value must be greater than or equal to the forecast horizon and less than half of the TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset length.

ForecastHorizon = BackTestWindowOffset 1/2 * TARGET_TIME_SERIES dataset length
