The RESTful nodes endpoint gives information about each node's status in a Weaviate cluster. It can be used to learn about Weaviate instances running in the cluster, their versions and basic statistics.


The nodes endpoint accepts a GET request:

GET /v1/nodes

And it returns a nodes field containing array of nodes with following fields:

  • name: Name of the node.
  • status: Status of the node (one of: HEALTHY, UNHEALTHY, UNAVAILABLE).
  • version: Version of Weaviate running on the node.
  • gitHash: Short git hash of latest commit of Weaviate running on the node.
  • stats: Statistics of the node with following fields:
    • shardCount: Total number of shards on the node.
    • objectCount Total number of objects on the node.
  • shards: Array of shards with following fields:
    • name: Name of the shard.
    • class: Name of the objects’ class stored on the shard.
    • objectCount: Number of objects on the shard.


The following command:

  import weaviate

client = weaviate.Client('http://localhost:8080')

nodes_status = client.cluster.get_nodes_status()
  const weaviate = require("weaviate-client");

const client = weaviate.client({
  scheme: 'http',
  host: 'localhost:8080',

  package main

import (


func main() {
  cfg := weaviate.Config{
    Host:   "localhost:8080",
    Scheme: "http",
  client := weaviate.New(cfg)

  nodesStatus, err := client.Cluster().

  if err != nil {
  fmt.Printf("%v", nodesStatus)
  package technology.semi.weaviate;

import technology.semi.weaviate.client.Config;
import technology.semi.weaviate.client.WeaviateClient;
import technology.semi.weaviate.client.base.Result;
import technology.semi.weaviate.client.v1.cluster.model.NodesStatusResponse;

public class App {
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    Config config = new Config("http", "localhost:8080");
    WeaviateClient client = new WeaviateClient(config);

    Result<NodesStatusResponse> result = client.cluster()

    if (result.hasErrors()) {
  $ curl http://localhost:8080/v1/nodes
