Reading Feature Data for Inference
Feature data can be read for inference using the methods in the following table.
|Using the HTTP API||This is the most common method used to read online feature data for inference. The HTTP API provides reads at low latency for single vector lookups.||Docs |
|Using the Java client||Use to read online feature data for inference. The client is a wrapper around the HTTP API and implements best practices for response deserialization and concurrent request handling.||Docs |
|Using the Python SDK (Method 1)||Use to read batch feature data for offline inference.||Docs |
|Using the Python SDK (Method 2)||Use to read online feature data to test inferences. This method is not suitable for production use.||Docs |
