Lightning-Fast Cluster Computing - http://spark.apache.org/
You can find the latest Spark documentation, including a programming guide, on the project webpage at http://spark.apache.org/documentation.html. This README file only contains basic setup instructions.
Spark is built on Scala 2.10. To build Spark and its example programs, run:
(You do not need to do this if you downloaded a pre-built package.)
Interactive Scala Shell
The easiest way to start using Spark is through the Scala shell:
Try the following command, which should return 1000:
scala> sc.parallelize(1 to 1000).count()
Interactive Python Shell
Alternatively, if you prefer Python, you can use the Python shell:
And run the following command, which should also return 1000:
Spark also comes with several sample programs in the
To run one of them, use
./bin/run-example <class> [params]. For example:
will run the Pi example locally.
You can set the MASTER environment variable when running examples to submit
examples to a cluster. This can be a mesos:// or spark:// URL,
“yarn-cluster” or “yarn-client” to run on YARN, and “local” to run
locally with one thread, or “local[N]” to run locally with N threads. You
can also use an abbreviated class name if the class is in the
package. For instance:
MASTER=spark://host:7077 ./bin/run-example SparkPi
Many of the example programs print usage help if no params are given.
Testing first requires building Spark. Once Spark is built, tests can be run using:
A Note About Hadoop Versions
Spark uses the Hadoop core library to talk to HDFS and other Hadoop-supported
storage systems. Because the protocols have changed in different versions of
Hadoop, you must build Spark against the same version that your cluster runs.
You can change the version by setting the
when building Spark.
For Apache Hadoop versions 1.x, Cloudera CDH MRv1, and other Hadoop versions without YARN, use:
# Apache Hadoop 1.2.1 $ SPARK_HADOOP_VERSION=1.2.1 sbt/sbt assembly # Cloudera CDH 4.2.0 with MapReduce v1 $ SPARK_HADOOP_VERSION=2.0.0-mr1-cdh4.2.0 sbt/sbt assembly
For Apache Hadoop 2.2.X, 2.1.X, 2.0.X, 0.23.x, Cloudera CDH MRv2, and other Hadoop versions
with YARN, also set
# Apache Hadoop 2.0.5-alpha $ SPARK_HADOOP_VERSION=2.0.5-alpha SPARK_YARN=true sbt/sbt assembly # Cloudera CDH 4.2.0 with MapReduce v2 $ SPARK_HADOOP_VERSION=2.0.0-cdh4.2.0 SPARK_YARN=true sbt/sbt assembly # Apache Hadoop 2.2.X and newer $ SPARK_HADOOP_VERSION=2.2.0 SPARK_YARN=true sbt/sbt assembly
When developing a Spark application, specify the Hadoop version by adding the
“hadoop-client” artifact to your project’s dependencies. For example, if you’re
using Hadoop 1.2.1 and build your application using SBT, add this entry to
"org.apache.hadoop" % "hadoop-client" % "1.2.1"
If your project is built with Maven, add this to your POM file’s
<dependency> <groupId>org.apache.hadoop</groupId> <artifactId>hadoop-client</artifactId> <version>1.2.1</version> </dependency>
Please refer to the Configuration guide in the online documentation for an overview on how to configure Spark.
