This model excels in code generation and understanding multiple languages, making it an ideal choice for developing virtual assistants or educational platforms that require reliability and excellence.

How to use it

Sending Inference requests

To perform inference tasks with your Mixtral model deployed at Scaleway, use the following command:

curl -s \
-H "Authorization: Bearer <IAM API key>" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request POST \
--url "https://<Deployment UUID>" \
--data '{"model":"mixtral-8x7b-instruct-v0.1", "messages":[{"role": "user","content": "Sing me a song about Scaleway"}], "max_tokens": 200, "top_p": 1, "temperature": 1, "stream": false}'

Make sure to replace <IAM API key> and <Deployment UUID> with your actual IAM API key and the Deployment UUID you are targeting.


The model name allows Scaleway to put your prompts in the expected format.


Ensure that the messages array is properly formatted with roles (system, user, assistant) and content.

Receiving Managed Inference responses

Upon sending the HTTP request to the public or private endpoints exposed by the server, you will receive inference responses from the managed Managed Inference server. Process the output data according to your application’s needs. The response will contain the output generated by the LLM model based on the input provided in the request.


Despite efforts for accuracy, the possibility of generated text containing inaccuracies or hallucinations exists. Always verify the content generated independently.
