Oh, Tzahi, I misread the metrics in the first reply. It’s about reads indeed, not writes.

Hi Hariharan,

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

In both cases we are writing the data to S3. The difference is that in the first case we read the data from S3 and in the second we read from HDFS. 

We are using ListObjectsV2 API in S3A

 

The S3 bucket and the cluster are located at the same AWS region.

Comparing the first two cases:

It looks like most of the time is being spent in reading, and the time spent in writing is likely negligible (probably you're not writing much output?)


Can you clarify what is the difference between these two?

> reads the parquet files from S3 and writes to its local hdfs, it takes the same amount of time (±22 min)?

In the second case, was the data read from hdfs or s3?

 

Regarding the point from the post you linked to:

1, Enhanced networking does make a difference, but it should be automatically enabled if you're using a compatible instance type and an AWS AMI. However if you're using a custom AMI, you might want to check if it's enabled for you.

2. VPC endpoints also can make a difference in performance - at least that used to be the case a few years ago. Maybe that has changed now.

 

Couple of other things you might want to check:

1. If your bucket is versioned, you may want to check if you're using the ListObjectsV2 API in S3A.

2. Also check these recommendations from Cloudera for optimal use of S3A.

 

Thanks,

Hariharan

Hi All,

We have a spark cluster on aws ec2 that has 60 X i3.4xlarge.

The spark job running on that cluster reads from an S3 bucket and writes to that bucket.

the bucket and the ec2 run in the same region.

As part of our efforts to reduce the runtime of our spark jobs we found there's serious latency when reading from S3.

When the job:

·         reads the parquet files from S3 and also writes to S3, it takes 22 min

·         reads the parquet files from S3 and writes to its local hdfs, it takes the same amount of time (±22 min)

·         reads the parquet files from S3 (they were copied into the hdfs before) and writes to its local hdfs, the job took 7 min

the spark job has the following S3-related configuration:

·         spark.hadoop.fs.s3a.connection.establish.timeout=5000

·         spark.hadoop.fs.s3a.connection.maximum=200

when reading from S3 we tried to increase the spark.hadoop.fs.s3a.connection.maximum config param from 200 to 400 or 900 but it didn't reduce the S3 latency.

Do you have any idea for the cause of the read latency from S3?

I saw this post to improve the transfer speed, is something here relevant?

 

 

Thanks,

Tzahi
