Subject RE: Spark Streaming-- for each new file in HDFS
Date Wed, 05 Oct 2016 09:14:12 GMT
Hi Franke,

Thanks for your reply. I am trying this and  doing as follows.

Let the third party application 1) dumps the original file in a directory and  .upload file
in another directory.
I am writing logic to listen to  directory that contains .upload files.

Here I need to map the name of the file in both the directories. Could you please suggest
how to get the filename in streaming.

val sc = new SparkContext("local[*]", "test")
val ssc = new StreamingContext(sc, Seconds(4))
val dStream = ssc.textFileStream(pathOfDirToStream)
dStream.foreachRDD { eventsRdd => /* How to get the file name */ }

I recommend that the third party application puts an empty file with the same filename as
the original file, but the extension ".uploaded". This is an indicator that the file has been
fully (!) written to the fs. Otherwise you risk only reading parts of the file.
Then, you can have a file system listener for this .upload file.

Spark streaming or Kafka are not needed/suitable, if the server is a file server. You can
use oozie (maybe with a simple custom action) to poll for .uploaded files and transmit them.

I am a newbie to spark and I have  below requirement.

Problem statement : A third party application is dumping files continuously in a server. Typically
the count of files is 100 files  per hour and each file is of size less than 50MB. My application
has to  process those files.

1) is it possible  for spark-stream to trigger a job after a file is placed instead of triggering
a job at fixed batch interval?
2) If it is not possible with Spark-streaming, can we control this with Kafka/Flume
