The environment specified by --image is built locally, and the locally existing model is executed as WebAPI.


In order to use the run-local-server command, docker must be installed.

  -d, --device_type [x86_cpu|x86_gpu|jetson_tx2|raspberry3]
                                  Device type
  -e, --environment ENVIRONMENTSTRING
                                  Environment variables
  -p, --port PORTNUMBER           port number assigned to local server (

  --no-cache, --no_cache          Not use built cache
  --v1                            Specify if you use old custom runtime image

-i, --image

Specify the image to use. See here for images that can be specified.

-d, --device_type

Specify the device type. [x86_cpu, x86_gpu, jetson_tx2, raspberry3]

-e, --environment

Specify an environment variable. Registered environment variables can be referenced from the code. e.g.)IMAGE_WIDTH:100
For more information on user-specifiable environment variables, see here.

-p, --port

Specify the port number. Any integer value between 1 and 65535 can be specified.

--no-cache, --no_cache
