Use Case: Ingesting energy data and running an Apache Spark job as part of the flow.

We will be using the new (in Apache NiFi 1.5 / HDF 3.1) ExecuteSparkInteractive processor with the LivyController to accomplish that integration. As we mentioned in the first part of the article, it's pretty easy to set this up.

Since this is a modern Apache NiFi project, we use version control on our code:

On a local machine, I am talking to an electricity sensor over WiFi in a Python script. This code is processed, cleaned and sent to a cloud hosted Apache NiFi instance via S2S over HTTP.

In the cloud we receive the pushed messages.

Once we open the Spark It Up processor group, we have a flow to process the data.

Flow Overview

  • QueryRecord: Determine how to route based on query on streaming data. Converts JSON to Apache AVRO.

Path for All Files

  • UpdateAttribute: Set a schema
  • MergeContent: Do an Apache AVRO merge on our data to make bigger files.
  • ConvertAvroToORC: Build an Apache ORC file from merged Apache AVRO file.
  • PutHDFS: Store our Apache ORC file in an HDFS directory on our HDP 2.6.4 cluster.

Path For Large Voltage

  • ExecuteSparkInteractive: Call our PySpark job
  • PutHDFS: Store the results to HDFS.

We could take all the metadata attributes and send them somewhere or store them as a JSON file.

We tested our PySpark program in Apache Zeppelin and then copy it to our processor.

Our ExecuteSparkInteractive Processor:

In our QueryProcessor we send messages with large voltages to the Apache Spark executor to run a PySpark job to do some more processing.

Once we have submitted a job via Apache Livy, we are now able to see the job during and after execution with detailed Apache Livy UI screens and Spark screens. In the Apache Livy UI screen below we can see the PySpark code executed and it's output.

Below are the source code related to this article:


Source Code: https://github.com/tspannhw/nifi-spark-livy


PySpark Code

shdf = spark.read.json("hdfs://yourhdp264server:8020/spark2-history")

shdf.printSchema()

shdf.createOrReplaceTempView("sparklogs")

stuffdf = spark.sql("SELECT * FROM sparklogs")

stuffdf.count()

This is a pretty simple PySpark application to read the JSON results of Spark2 History, print a schema inferred from it and then do a simple SELECT and count. We could do Spark machine learning or other processing in there very easily. You can run Python 2.x or 3.x for this with PySpark. I am running this in Apache Spark 2.2.0 hosted on a HDP 2.6.4 cluster running Centos 7. The fun part is that everytime I run this Spark job it produces more results for it to read. I should probably just read that log in Apache NiFi, but it was a fun little example. Clearly you can run any kind of job in here, my next article will be around running Apache MXNet and Spark MLib jobs through Apache Livy and Apache NiFi.

For a quick side note, you have a lot of options for working with schemas now:

Shell Tip:

Apache MXnet may have some warnings sent to STDERR. I don't want these, so send them to /dev/null:

python3 -W ignore analyze.py 2>/dev/null
