Thread: Running 'job' under Spark Adaptive Execution Layer

  1. #1

    Default Running 'job' under Spark Adaptive Execution Layer


    I've started the pdi-daemon successfully on my machine under HDP Sandbox. Now I want to run a 'JOB' under Spark, but under Spoon I'm not able to run a job under Spark. Seems like it is available only for 'Transformation'. Is that true?

    Is there a way to run a 'Job' under Spark AEL? I read somewhere that I can 'submit' a job using 'spark-submit'. Can someone point me to some documentation?

    Did you create a Run Configuration for Spark? See my blog post for me details.
    Best regards,

    Hi achitre. I'm not sure what are you trying to accomplish. It doesn't make really much sense to me trying to run a "Job" under Spark AEL, since Spark is used as a processing engine and all the "processing" work happens inside a transformation. I recommend you to check out this answer in the PDI FAQ: What's the difference between transformations and jobs.

    Considering you want to use Spark Submit, there are a few differences from using pdi-daemon and spark as a transformation engine, as it's more similar to running a native "spark-submit" as you might know. I find this a good reading on this subject: Using Spark With PDI
