How do I use Apache Spark with Wasabi?

Apache Spark is validated for use with Wasabi. Apache Spark is a fast and general-purpose cluster computing system. It provides support for streaming data, graph and machine learning algorithms to perform advanced data analytics. 


In our testing we used the following packages on a CentOS 7 server:


We also need to install a few dependencies on the Spark system. 

[root@ApacheSpark ~]# spark-shell --packages org.apache.hadoop:hadoop-aws:2.7.2

In addition, you may need to download the following jar files into your "/spark-xxxx/jars" directory.



Configuration Steps

Within the spark-shell command prompt, run the following commands (shown in Bold) using your Wasabi credentials and bucket information to connect to your Wasabi storage account. In the example below, we are using existing data in the bucket to read into the Spark cluster, and run analysis on.

scala> sc.hadoopConfiguration.set("fs.s3a.endpoint", "")
scala> sc.hadoopConfiguration.set("fs.s3a.access.key","<ACCESS-KEY>")
scala> sc.hadoopConfiguration.set("fs.s3a.secret.key","<SECRET-ACCESS-KEY>")
scala> val myRDD = sc.textFile("s3a://<bucketname>/<filename>")

Note -  The endpoint URL should be the URL associated with the region in which your bucket resides. Click here to find more information on the different Wasabi URLs.

At this point, you can run additional commands to run data analysis jobs as well as write the output to your S3 bucket as needed.

For example, see some commands executed below. 

scala> myRDD.count
res3: Long = 25
scala> myRDD.collect

res4: Array[String] = Array(Bucket,BucketNum,StartTime,EndTime,NumBillableActiveStorageObjects,NumBillableDeletedStorageObjec ts,RawActiveStorageBytes,BillableActiveStorageBytes,BillableDeletedStorageBytes,NumAPICalls,IngressBytes,EgressBytes, e53b455 2a64c4afd-584aaa3a91f883d0-d0,333918,2020-01-13T00:00:00Z,2020-01-14T00:00:00Z,29,73,67013312,67042274,120692736,9,10475,4197 7, e53b4552a64c4afd-584aaa3a91f883d0-d0,333918,2020-01-12T00:00:00Z,2020-01-13T00:00:00Z,29,73,67013312,67042274,120692736,4, 4427,22785, e53b4552a64c4afd-584aaa3a91f883d0-d0,333918,2020-01-11T00:00:00Z,2020-01-12T00:00:00Z,29,73,67013312,67042274,120 692736,3,2965,14864, e53b4552a64c4afd-584aaa3a91f883d0-d0,333918,2020-01-10T00:00:00Z,2020-01-11T00:00:00Z,29,73,67013312,670 42274,120692736,3,2965,14864, e53b4552a64c4afd-...

scala> myRDD.saveAsTextFile("s3a://sparktest/output")

Note - The function 'count' returns the number of elements in the RDD (Resilient Distributed Dataset) and 'collect' returns an array that contains all of the elements in this RDD. The 'saveAsTextFile' function saves this RDD as a compressed text file, using string representations of elements into a new folder called 'output' inside the bucket 'sparktest'. See screenshot below.
