How to Run a Spark Standalone Job¶
This is a minimal Spark script that imports PySpark, initializes a SparkContext and performs a distributed calculation on a Spark cluster in standalone mode.
Who is this for?¶
This how-to is for users of a Spark cluster that has been configured in standalone mode who wish to run Python code.
Spark Standalone Summary¶
Before you start¶
To execute this example, download the
cluster-spark-basic.py example script
to the cluster node where you submit Spark jobs.
For this example, you’ll need Spark running with the standalone scheduler. You can install Spark using an enterprise Hadoop distribution such as Cloudera CDH or Hortonworks HDP. Some additional configuration might be necessary to use Spark in standalone mode.
Modifying the script¶
After downloading the
cluster-spark-basic.py example script open
the file in a text editor on your cluster. Replace
HEAD_NODE_HOSTNAME with the
hostname of the head node of the Spark cluster.
# cluster-spark-basic.py from pyspark import SparkConf from pyspark import SparkContext conf = SparkConf() conf.setMaster('spark://HEAD_NODE_HOSTNAME:7077') conf.setAppName('spark-basic') sc = SparkContext(conf=conf) def mod(x): import numpy as np return (x, np.mod(x, 2)) rdd = sc.parallelize(range(1000)).map(mod).take(10) print rdd
Let’s analyze the contents of the
spark-basic.rst example script.
The first code block contains imports from PySpark.
The second code block initializes the SparkContext and sets the application name.
The third code block contains the analysis code that calculates the modulus of a range of numbers up to 1000 using the NumPy package and returns/prints the first 10 results.
Note: you may have to install NumPy with
acluster conda install numpy.
Running the job¶
You can run this script by submitting it to your cluster for execution using spark-submit or by running this command
The output from the above command shows the first ten values that were returned from the
