[ aws . sagemaker ]



Returns the description of an endpoint.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--endpoint-name <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--endpoint-name (string)

The name of the endpoint.

--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.


EndpointName -> (string)

Name of the endpoint.

EndpointArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the endpoint.

EndpointConfigName -> (string)

The name of the endpoint configuration associated with this endpoint.

ProductionVariants -> (list)

An array of ProductionVariantSummary objects, one for each model hosted behind this endpoint.


Describes weight and capacities for a production variant associated with an endpoint. If you sent a request to the UpdateEndpointWeightsAndCapacities API and the endpoint status is Updating , you get different desired and current values.

VariantName -> (string)

The name of the variant.

DeployedImages -> (list)

An array of DeployedImage objects that specify the Amazon EC2 Container Registry paths of the inference images deployed on instances of this ProductionVariant .


Gets the Amazon EC2 Container Registry path of the docker image of the model that is hosted in this ProductionVariant .

If you used the registry/repository[:tag] form to specify the image path of the primary container when you created the model hosted in this ProductionVariant , the path resolves to a path of the form registry/repository[@digest] . A digest is a hash value that identifies a specific version of an image. For information about Amazon ECR paths, see Pulling an Image in the Amazon ECR User Guide .

SpecifiedImage -> (string)

The image path you specified when you created the model.

ResolvedImage -> (string)

The specific digest path of the image hosted in this ProductionVariant .

ResolutionTime -> (timestamp)

The date and time when the image path for the model resolved to the ResolvedImage

CurrentWeight -> (float)

The weight associated with the variant.

DesiredWeight -> (float)

The requested weight, as specified in the UpdateEndpointWeightsAndCapacities request.

CurrentInstanceCount -> (integer)

The number of instances associated with the variant.

DesiredInstanceCount -> (integer)

The number of instances requested in the UpdateEndpointWeightsAndCapacities request.

DataCaptureConfig -> (structure)

EnableCapture -> (boolean)

CaptureStatus -> (string)

CurrentSamplingPercentage -> (integer)

DestinationS3Uri -> (string)

KmsKeyId -> (string)

EndpointStatus -> (string)

The status of the endpoint.

  • OutOfService : Endpoint is not available to take incoming requests.
  • Creating : CreateEndpoint is executing.
  • Updating : UpdateEndpoint or UpdateEndpointWeightsAndCapacities is executing.
  • SystemUpdating : Endpoint is undergoing maintenance and cannot be updated or deleted or re-scaled until it has completed. This maintenance operation does not change any customer-specified values such as VPC config, KMS encryption, model, instance type, or instance count.
  • RollingBack : Endpoint fails to scale up or down or change its variant weight and is in the process of rolling back to its previous configuration. Once the rollback completes, endpoint returns to an InService status. This transitional status only applies to an endpoint that has autoscaling enabled and is undergoing variant weight or capacity changes as part of an UpdateEndpointWeightsAndCapacities call or when the UpdateEndpointWeightsAndCapacities operation is called explicitly.
  • InService : Endpoint is available to process incoming requests.
  • Deleting : DeleteEndpoint is executing.
  • Failed : Endpoint could not be created, updated, or re-scaled. Use DescribeEndpointOutput$FailureReason for information about the failure. DeleteEndpoint is the only operation that can be performed on a failed endpoint.

FailureReason -> (string)

If the status of the endpoint is Failed , the reason why it failed.

CreationTime -> (timestamp)

A timestamp that shows when the endpoint was created.

LastModifiedTime -> (timestamp)

A timestamp that shows when the endpoint was last modified.
