Model Server for Apache MXNet is a tool for serving neural net models for inference

Project description

Apache MXNet Model Server (MMS) is a flexible and easy to use tool for serving deep learning models exported from MXNet or the Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX).

Use the MMS Server CLI, or the pre-configured Docker images, to start a service that sets up HTTP endpoints to handle model inference requests.

Detailed documentation and examples are provided in the docs folder.


  • java 8: Required. MMS use java to serve HTTP requests. You must install java 8 (or later) and make sure java is on available in $PATH environment variable before installing MMS. If you have multiple java installed, you can use $JAVA_HOME environment vairable to control which java to use.

  • mxnet: mxnet will not be installed by default with MMS 1.0 any more. You have to install it manually if you use MxNet.

For ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre-headless

For centos

sudo yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk

For Mac:

brew tap caskroom/versions
brew update
brew cask install java8

Install MxNet:

pip install mxnet

MXNet offers MKL pip packages that will be much faster when running on Intel hardware. To install mkl package for CPU:

pip install mxnet-mkl

or for GPU instance:

pip install mxnet-cu92mkl


pip install mxnet-model-server


We welcome new contributors of all experience levels. For information on how to install MMS for development, refer to the MMS docs.
