Productionalizing Spark streaming applications

The University of Advancing Technology 2625 W. BASELINE RD. , Tempe, AZ 85283 (map)

Topic: Productionalizing Spark streaming applications


Spark Streaming has quickly established itself as one of the more popular Streaming Engines running on the Hadoop Ecosystem. Not only does it provide integration with many type of message brokers and stream sources, but it also provides the ability to leverage other major modules in Spark like Spark SQL and MLib in conjunction. This allows for businesses and developers to make use out of data in ways they couldn’t hope to do in the past.

However, while building a Spark Streaming pipeline, it’s not sufficient to only know how to express your business logic. Operationalizing these pipelines and running the application with high uptime and continuous monitoring has a lot of operational challenges. Fortunately, Spark Streaming makes all that easy as well. In this talk, I’ll be going over some of the main steps you’ll need to take to get your Spark Streaming application ready for production, specifically in conjunction with Kafka. This includes steps to gracefully shutdown your application, steps to perform upgrades, monitoring, various useful spark configurations and more.
