Unable to submit a python file in livy-server

Unable to submit a python file in livy-server

New Contributor

Hi,

I am trying to execute a python file which is stored in hdfs using livy-server. However I am getting an error as Only local python files supported.

Host: 10.140.178.24

Port:8999

hadoop fs -ls /hp

-rw-r--r-- 3 root hdfs 1613 2017-03-15 12:44 /hp/pi.py

I executed the curl command with the above path for the python file

curl -X POST --data '{"file": "/hp/pi.py"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" 10.140.178.24:8999/batches

{"id":12,"state":"running","appId":null,"appInfo":{"driverLogUrl":null,"sparkUiUrl":null},"log":[]}

However when I look into the logs, i get only local python files are supported.

 curl 10.140.178.24:8999/batches/12/log |  python -m json.tool

I am not sure why it is pointing to the local mode.I have read other posts and I have to set spark master as yarn-cluster but I am not sure where and how to set it. Kindly if someone can let me know how to resolve the above issue, it would be great. Any help would be appreciated

@ Srinivas Santhanam Not sure if this will help, but have you tried using the --files option to pass the Python script? See the answer here for more details: https://community.hortonworks.com/comments/41935/view.html.

I'm not sure it is possible to execute Python files in HDFS; hence the error that only local files are supported. (If you know how to make it work with HDFS let me know!)

To get this to work for me I had to manually upload my Python files to a directory on the Livy server itself. You also have to make sure that the directory in which you put the Python files is listed in the livy.file.local-dir-whitelist property in livy.conf on the Livy server. You might also have to restart the Livy server but I'm not sure about that as I wasn't the server admin.

After doing all this you can invoke POST /batches by giving the path to your Python file in the 'file' arg of the request. Make sure you use the "file:" protocol in the path's value. Only one forward slash is needed after the colon; example value: "file:/data/pi.py"
