Beginning Apache Spark 2: With Resilient Distri... !EXCLUSIVE!

It is also possible to launch the PySpark shell in IPython, theenhanced Python interpreter. PySpark works with IPython 1.0.0 and later. Touse IPython, set the PYSPARK_DRIVER_PYTHON variable to ipython when running bin/pyspark:

Consider the naive RDD element sum below, which may behave differently depending on whether execution is happening within the same JVM. A common example of this is when running Spark in local mode (--master = local[n]) versus deploying a Spark application to a cluster (e.g. via spark-submit to YARN):

Apache Spark is a parallel data processing framework and an open-source unified analytics that is used to process large-scale data. It has various applications in big data and machine learning. It is a data processing framework that deals with data workloads, uses in-memory caching, and optimizes query execution for fast effective analytic result. Apache Spark on local host distributes, MESOS or HDFS stores and distributes data as a resilient distributed dataset RDD.

The immutability of a resilient distributed dataset makes it safer to share data across various processes without any second thoughts. When shared, no other worker can make any modification from their end in RDD.

The frequently used resilient distributed dataset can be stored in memory and retrieved directly from it without going to the disk. This speeds up the execution process and we can perform multiple operations on the same data in minimal time. It is carried out by storing the data explicitly in memory using cache () and persist () functions.

Best practice 3: Carefully calculate the preceding additional properties based on application requirements. Set these properties appropriately in spark-defaults, when submitting a Spark application (spark-submit), or within a SparkConf object.

A worker node is a component within a cluster that is capable of executing Spark application code. It can contain multiple workers, configured using the SPARK_WORKER_INSTANCES property in the file. If this property is not defined, only one worker will be launched.

The number of nodes can be decided by benchmarking the hardware and considering multiple factors such as optimal throughput (network speed), memory usage, the execution frameworks being used (YARN, Standalone, or Mesos), and considering the other jobs that are running within those execution frameworks along with a spark.

The transform function in spark streaming allows developers to use Apache Spark transformations on the underlying RDDs for the Stream. The map function in Hadoop is used for an element-to-element transform and can be implemented using a transform. Ideally, the map works on the elements of Dstream and transforms developers to work with RDDs of the DStream. A map is an elementary transformation, whereas a transform is an RDD transformation.

Spark GraphX comes with its own set of built-in graph algorithms, which can help with graph processing and analytics tasks involving the graphs. The algorithms are available in a library package called 'org.apache.spark.graphx.lib'. These algorithms have to be called methods in the Graph class and can just be reused rather than having to write our implementation of these algorithms. Some of the algorithms provided by the GraphX library package are:

Minimizing data transfers and avoiding shuffling helps write spark programs that run quickly and reliably. The various ways in which data transfers can be minimized when working with Apache Spark are:

Spark executors, in combination with an External shuffle service, are already resilient to failure. The shuffle data generated by Spark executors is stored in an external service, the External shuffle service, so these are not lost if the executor crashes. Also the Spark driver will re-schedule tasks that have been lost in-flight or unfinished due to the executor failing.

Using a Big data processing approach combined with a hybrid financial ontology is the best approach among existing real-time architectures. This approach is more suitable for real-time data integration, especially in large datasets processing. It shows a good performance and decrease latency in a short time frame report delivery. It also use Apache Spark programming interface which provides a large panel of transformations that could be applied on RDDs. The hybrid financial ontology provides a rich knowledge base of metadata which assists metadata mapping and enhance key/value retrieving using our defined HFO tree. After building a big data and real-time based ETL using RDDs, we are now focused on optimizing memory consumption. Using resilient distributed datasets in Apache Spark needs more memory than other programming interfaces in data processing. And distributed computing needs a considerable number of nodes to handle task dispatching. The next works are around reducing the number of slave nodes and developing a better resources management algorithm for master node.[Partitions are the units of parallelism]. You can control the number of partitions of a RDD using[repartition] or[coalesce] transformations. Spark tries to be as close to data as possible without wasting time to send data across network by means of RDD shuffling, and creates as many partitions as required to follow the storage layout and thus optimize data access. It leads to a one-to-one mapping between (physical) data in distributed data storage, e.g. HDFS or Cassandra, and partitions.

Most big data joins involves joining a large fact table against a small mapping or dimension table to map ids to descriptions, etc. If the mapping table is small enough we can use broadcast join to move the mapping table to each of the node that has the fact tables data in it and preventing the data shuffle of the large dataset. This is called a broadcast join due to the fact that we are broadcasting the dimension table. By default the maximum size for a table to be considered for broadcasting is 10MB.This is set using the spark.sql.autoBroadcastJoinThreshold variable. First lets consider a join without broadcast.

Note that in the above code snippet we start pyspark with --executor-memory=8g this option is to ensure that the memory size for each node is 8GB due to the fact that this is a large join. The number of buckets 400 was chosen to be an arbritray large number.

Insert gs://spark-lib/bigquery/spark-bigquery-latest_2.12.jarin the Jar files field. This makes the spark-bigquery-connector availableto the PySpark application at runtime to allow it to read BigQuerydata into a Spark DataFrame. The 2.12 jar is compatible with Dataproc clusters created withthe 1.5 or later image. If your Dataproc cluster was created with the1.3 or 1.4 image, specify the 2.11 jar instead(gs://spark-lib/bigquery/spark-bigquery-latest_2.11.jar).

Command-lineFor those that want to set the properties through the command-line (either directly or by loading them from a file), note that Spark only accepts those that start with the "spark." prefix and will ignore the rest (and depending on the version a warning might be thrown). To work around this limitation, define the elasticsearch-hadoop properties by appending the spark. prefix (thus they become and elasticsearch-hadoop will automatically resolve them:

Pair RDDs, or simply put RDDs with the signature RDD[(K,V)] can take advantage of the saveToEsWithMeta methods that are available either through the implicit import of org.elasticsearch.spark package or EsSpark object.To manually specify the id for each document, simply pass in the Object (not of type Map) in your RDD:

Pair DStreamss, or simply put DStreamss with the signature DStream[(K,V)] can take advantage of the saveToEsWithMeta methods that are available either through the implicit import of org.elasticsearch.spark.streaming package or EsSparkStreaming object.To manually specify the id for each document, simply pass in the Object (not of type Map) in your DStream:

Spark SQL while becoming a mature component, is still going through significant changes between releases. Spark SQL became a stable component in version 1.3, however it is not backwards compatible with the previous releases. Further more Spark 2.0 introduced significant changed which broke backwards compatibility, throughthe Dataset API.elasticsearch-hadoop supports both version Spark SQL 1.3-1.6 and Spark SQL 2.0 through two different jars:elasticsearch-spark-1.x-.jar and elasticsearch-hadoop-.jar support Spark SQL 1.3-1.6 (or higher) while elasticsearch-spark-2.0-.jar supports Spark SQL 2.0.In other words, unless you are using Spark 2.0, use elasticsearch-spark-1.x-.jar 041b061a72
