is very useful to use cell based notebooks (similar to jupyter) to work with various applications i.e. spark, python, hive, hbase etc by using various interpreters
and Sparkling Water
you can use Zeppelin on Hadoop cluster with YARN, and then could use Python or Pysparkling to submit jobs.
Here are the steps using Pyspakling with YARN on a hadoop cluster.
1. Get the latest build of sparkling water from here
2. Download and unzip the correct Sparkling Water version comparable with the Spark version into one of the edge node in your Hadoop cluster.
3. Set the following environment variables to the right path before running services:
export MASTER=”yarn-client” // To submit to the Yarn cluster
export HADOOP_CONF_DIR=“path_to_the_hadoop_installation”export SPARK_SUBMIT_OPTIONS=”–packages ai.h2o:sparkling-water-examples_2.11:2.1.0”
export SPARKLING_EGG=$(ls -t /sparkling-water-2.1.0/py/build/dist/h2o_pysparkling*.egg | head -1)
//path to the Sparkling egg file needs to be updated above
Please make sure to check above version values to reflect the following:
- 2.11-> refers to the scala version.
- 2.1.0 —> refers to the spark version.
4. Set the “spark.executor.memory 4g” in Zeppelin either in the configuration file or in the Zeppelin UI if Error 143 is seen while starting the zeppelin server.
Note: To configure it in the Zeppelin UI, goto the dropdown next to the user at theTop right corner , select Interpreters and in the Spark section either edit or add the configuration.
5. Start the Zeppelin server using the command below. This would start Zeppelin in a Yarn container.
6. In Zeppelin notebook, create a new note with the markdown as below and add the path to the egg file. This will add the dependency and the classes of pysparkling.
7. Now, one can start calling pysparkling API’s like below:
from pysparkling import *
from pyspark import SparkContext
from pyspark.sql import SQLContext
import h2o hc = H2OContext.getOrCreate(sc)
8. To use the scala Sparkling water, one does not need to add dependency explicitly in the note in Zeppelin. A sample script would look like
val rdd = sc.parallelize(1 to 1000, 100).map( v => IntHolder(Some(v)))
val h2oContext = H2OContext.getOrCreate(sc)
Thats all, enjoy!!
