Get Apache Wayang ready to test within 5 minutes

Listen:

Hey followers, I often get ask how to get Apache Wayang (https://wayang.apache.org) up and running without having a full big data processing system behind. We heard you, we built a full fledged docker container, called BDE (Blossom Development Environment), which is basically Wayang. Here's the repo: https://github.com/databloom-ai/BDE

I made a short screencast how to get it running with Docker on OSX, and we also have made two hands-on videos to explain the first steps. Let's start with the basics - Docker. Get the whole platform with:

docker pull ghcr.io/databloom-ai/bde:main


At the end the Jupyter notebook address is shown, control-click on it (OS X); the browser should open and login you automatically:




Voila - done. You have now a full working Wayang environment, we prepared three notebooks to make it more easy to dive into. Watch our development tutorial video (part 1) to get a better understanding what Wayang can do, and what not. Click the video below:

Deal with corrupted messages in Apache Kafka

Under some strange circumstances it can happen that a message in a Kafka topic is corrupted. This happens often by using 3rd party frameworks together with Kafka. Additionally, Kafka < 0.9 has no lock at Log.read() at the consumer read level, but has a lock on Log.write(). This can cause a rare race condition, as described in KAKFA-2477 [1]. Probably a log entry looks like: ERROR Error processing message, stopping consumer: (kafka.tools.ConsoleConsumer$) kafka.message.InvalidMessageException: Message is corrupt (stored crc = xxxxxxxxxx, computed crc = yyyyyyyyyy Kafka-Tools Kafka stores the offset of every consumer in Zookeeper. To read out the offsets, Kafka provides handy tools [2]. But also zkCli.sh can be used, at least to display the consumer and the stored offsets. First we need to find the consumer for a topic (> Kafka 0.9): bin/kafka-consumer-groups.sh --zookeeper management01:2181 --describe --group test Prior to Kafka 0.9 the only possibility to get this inform

Hive query shows ERROR "too many counters"

A hive job face the odd " Too many counters:"  like Ended Job = job_xxxxxx with exception 'org.apache.hadoop.mapreduce.counters.LimitExceededException(Too many counters: 201 max=200)' FAILED: Execution Error, return code 1 from org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.exec.MapRedTask Intercepting System.exit(1) These happens when operators are used in queries ( Hive Operators ). Hive creates 4 counters per operator, max upto 1000, plus a few additional counters like file read/write, partitions and tables. Hence the number of counter required is going to be dependent upon the query.  To avoid such exception, configure " mapreduce.job.counters.max " in mapreduce-site.xml to a value above 1000. Hive will fail when he is hitting the 1k counts, but other MR jobs not. A number around 1120 should be a good choice. Using " EXPLAIN EXTENDED " and " grep -ri operators | wc -l " print out the used numbers of operators. Use this value to tweak the MR s
