Airflow to Manage Talend ETL Jobs

Airflow, an open source platform, is used to orchestrate workflows as Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs) of tasks in a programmatic manner. An airflow scheduler is used to schedule workflows and data processing pipelines. Airflow user interface allows easy visualization of pipelines running in production environment, monitoring of the progress of the workflows, and troubleshooting issues when needed.

Visualize IoT data with Kaa and MongoDB Compass

Kaa is a highly flexible, open source middleware platform for Internet of Things (IoT) product development. It provides a scalable, end-to-end IoT framework for large cloud-connected IoT networks. Kaa enables data management and real time bidirectional data exchange between the connected objects and backend infrastructure by providing server and endpoint SDK components.

Apache Spark Performance Tuning – Straggler Tasks

This is the last article of a four-part series about Apache Spark on YARN. Apache Spark carefully distinguishes “transformation” operation into two types such as “narrow” and “wide”. This distinction is important due to strong implications on evaluating transformations and improving their performance. Spark depends heavily on key/value pair paradigm on defining and parallelizing operations, especially wide transformations requiring data to be redistributed between machines.

Apache Spark Performance Tuning – Degree of Parallelism

This is the third article of a four-part series about Apache Spark on YARN. Apache Spark allows developers to run multiple tasks in parallel across machines in a cluster or across multiple cores on a desktop. A partition, aka split, is a logical chunk of a distributed data set. Apache Spark builds Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) with jobs, stages, and tasks for the submitted application. The number of tasks will be determined based on number of partitions.

Apache Spark on YARN – Resource Planning

This is the second article of a four-part series about Apache Spark on YARN. As Apache Spark is an in-memory distributed data processing engine, the application performance is heavily dependent on resources such as executors, cores, and memory allocated. The resources for the application depends on the application characteristics such as storage and computation.

Few performance bottlenecks were identified in the SFO Fire department call service dataset use case with YARN cluster manager. One of the bottlenecks was about improper usage of resources in YARN cluster and execution of the application based on default Spark configuration.

Apache Spark on YARN – Performance and Bottlenecks

This is the first article of a four-part series about Apache Spark on YARN. Apache Spark 2.x version ships with second-generation Tungsten engine. This engine is built upon ideas from modern compilers to emit optimized code at runtime that collapses the entire query into a single function by using “whole-stage code generation” technique. Let us discuss about high-level and low-level Spark API performances. SFO Fire department call service dataset and YARN cluster manager are chosen to test as well as tune the application performance.
