Spark 2.2 Broadcast Join fails with huge dataset

New Contributor

Hello everyone,

I am currently facing issues when trying to join (inner) a huge dataset (654 GB) with a smaller one (535 MB) using Spark DataFrame API.

I am broadcasting the smaller dataset to the worker nodes using the broadcast() function.


I am unable to do the join between those two datasets. Here is a sample of the errors I got :

Before joining the large dataset with the smaller one, I tried joining 10 000 records of the first one with the entire smaller one (535 MB). I had a "Futures timed out [300 s] error".


I then increased the spark.sql.broadcastTimeout variable to 3600 s. It worked fine. But when I try joining it with the entire dataset (654 GB), it gives me the error you can see up (TextWriting Exception).


My questions are :

- How can I monitor more efficiently my spark jobs ? And how should I proceed ?

- What do you think is causing this error to happen ? How can I solve it ?


You will find below some information on the cluster, the execution and the configuration of the spark job.


Some information/context :

I am working on a production environment (see the cluster configuration below). I cannot upgrade my spark version. I do not have spark UI or yarn UI to monitor my jobs. All I can retrieve are the yarn logs.


Spark Version : 2.2


Cluster configuration:

21 compute nodes (workers)

8 cores each

64 GB RAM per node


Current Spark configuration :

master: yarn

executor-memory: 42G

executor-cores: 5

driver memory: 42G

num-executors: 28

spark.sql.broadcastTimeout=3600

spark.kryoserializer.buffer.max=512

spark.yarn.executor.memoryOverhead=2400

spark.driver.maxResultSize=500m

spark.memory.storageFraction=0.9

spark.memory.fraction=0.9

spark.hadoop.fs.permissions.umask-mode=007


How is the job executed:


We build an artifact (jar) with IntelliJ and then send it to a server. Then a bash script is executed . This script :


- export some environment variables (SPARK_HOME, HADOOP_CONF_DIR, PATH and SPARK_LOCAL_DIRS)

- launch the spark-submit command with all the parameters defined in the spark configuration above.

- retrieves the yarn logs of the application

Problem solved.

Here is the post where it was solved with more details (code, execution plan) :
