Subject Re: Merging all Spark Streaming RDDs to one RDD
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2014 18:43:29 GMT
I have much the same issue.

While I haven't totally solved it yet, I have found the "window" method useful for batching
up archive blocks - but updateStateByKey is probably what we want to use, perhaps multiple
times. If that works.

My bigger worry now is storage. Unlike non-streaming apps, we tend to build up state that
cannot be regenerated, and hadoop files don't seem to be the best solution.

not encourage users to create an array of RDDs.
