Cannot find SparkR executable running R snippet from Hue Notebook

Cannot find SparkR executable running R snippet from Hue Notebook

New Contributor

I am running hadoop 2.7.2 with spark 1.6.1 on Yarn. I have built hue and livy from the source at http://github.com/cloudera/hue. I built livy against spark 1.6.1 using:

 

mvn -DskipTests -Dspark.version=1.6.1 clean package

 

I am trying to run the Hue Notebook Sample (or my simple own code). I am able to run hive queries, pySpark, scala, but not R. I get the following error in the container log on R snippets:

 

Exception thrown when initializing server: java.lang.Exception: Cannot find sparkR executable

SPARK_HOME and other environment variables are set. I am also able to run sparkR shell on yarn or local from the terminal.

 

I figured the exception was coming from hue/apps/spark/java/livy-repl/src/main/scala/com/cloudera/hue/livy/repl/sparkr/SparkRInterpreter.scala as it was not finding the executable. I replaced the "sparkR" with the complete path to sparkR to see what happens, built again, but then I get the following error in the container log, after waiting 10000ms for Spark Context to Initialize. Appreciate any hints on what might be going wrong? I do not see any other useful logs on yarn or spark.

I made sparkR available in the path and it works. Also, had to go back to spark 1.5.0

Also, this happens in both yarn and process modes. Appreciate any help!

Update: Going back to Spark 1.5.0 solved the second problem (I read on another post that 1.6.1 is not supported in notebook). But I still had to change the path to the complete path for sparkR.

Hi  BhushanK

 

I am having the same problem that you reported in your first email.
Please could give all details, how do you pointed the sparkR path? What files have you configured?
Because I have tried and doesnt work.

I really appreciate your answer .
Thank you very much.

Hi @Estannislao

 

Like I noted, I had to go back to spark 1.5.0. Next, I added the complete path to spark/bin to my PATH environment variable. I did not have to change anything in code.

Bhushan

Hi BhushanK

Thank you very much.

 

Please, How do you setup the path in hue.sh e hue.ini is it like this?

 

hue.sh

export HUE_HOME=/opt/mapr/hue/hue-3.9.0
export HADOOP_CONF_DIR=/opt/mapr/hadoop/hadoop-2.7.0/etc/hadoop

 

hue.ini

[spark]
livy_server_host=localhost

# Configure livy to start with 'process', 'thread', or 'yarn' workers.
livy_server_session_kind=yarn
