Subject Re: Relation between DStream and RDDs
Date Thu, 20 Mar 2014 07:56:24 GMT
If I may add my contribution to this discussion if I understand well your

DStream is discretized stream. It discretized the data stream over windows
of time (according to the project code I've read and paper too). so when
you write:

JavaStreamingContext stcObj = new JavaStreamingContext(confObj, new
Duration(60 * 60 * 1000)); //1 hour

It means you are discretizing over a 1h window. Each batch so each RDD of
the dstream will collect data for 1h before going to next RDD.
So if you want to have more RDD, you should reduce batch size/duration...
