Subject Re: CSV write to S3 failing silently with partial completion
Date Mon, 11 Sep 2017 13:31:05 GMT

Can you please let me know the following:
1. Why are you using JAVA?
2. The way you are creating the SPARK cluster
3. The way you are initiating SPARK session or context
4. Are you able to query the data that is written to S3 using a SPARK
dataframe and validate that the number of rows in the source are same as
the ones written to target?
5. how are you loading the data to Redshift (cluster size, version,
command, compression, command, manifest file)
6. using Redshift JDBC ( you
will have to play around with it a bit to understand how it works (be
careful that it does not drop the table at target Redshift database)
