Apache Spark Components CheatSheet

Troubled by confusing concepts such as Executors, Node, RDD, Task in spark? Invest just 2 minutes of your time to make some order in this mess!


I'll clean up these apache spark concepts for you!

Spark building blocks: executor,tasks,cache,sparkcontext,cluster manager


Executor => Multiple Tasks: is a JVM process sitting on all nodes.  Executors receive tasks (jars with your code) deserialize it, and run it as a task.

Executors utilize cache so that the tasks can run faster.

Node => Multiple Executors: Each node has multiple executors.

RDD => Big DataStructure: Its main strength is that it represents data which cannot be stored on a single machine, so its data is distributed, partitioned, split across computers.

Input => RDD: Every RDD is born out of some input like a text file, hadoop files etc.

Output => RDD: The output of functions in spark can produce an RDD.  So it's like one function after another each receives an input RDD and outputs an output RDD, it's functional.

RDD[Type, Type] : RDD's are typed, they are data of a certain type.

RDD => 1,2,3: RDD's are ordered.

RDD => Zzzz: RDD's are lazily evaluated.  We said functional, didn't we? so you have multiple transformations on your data and only when you hit an action you need the actual data.

RDD => Partitioned: RDD's are partitioned between servers, we said it's big data so we need to partition it.

RDD => Array(thing1, thing2, thing3) : You can think of RDD's as a bunch of things.

Guys if you have any other mess and want me to cheatsheet something for you just comment below, also I would highly appreciate any comment's about this post please feedback me!

Dev OnCall Patterns

Introduction Being On-Call is not easy. So does writing software. Being On-Call is not just a magic solution, anyone who has been On-Call can tell you that, it's a stressful, you could be woken up at the middle of the night, and be undress stress, there are way's to mitigate that. White having software developers as On-Calls has its benefits, in order to preserve the benefits you should take special measurements in order to mitigate the stress and lack of sleep missing work-life balance that comes along with it. Many software developers can tell you that even if they were not being contacted the thought of being available 24/7 had its toll on them. But on the contrary a software developer who is an On-Call's gains many insights into troubleshooting, responsibility and deeper understanding of the code that he and his peers wrote. Being an On-Call all has become a natural part of software development. Please note I do not call software development software engineering b

Containers - Quick Low Level Guide

Containers Kernel, namespace, cgroups Kernel space and user space Before we actually get to explain containers let's define what is a kernel.  Because you know there is no such thing in reality as a kernel it's only how we name things, and different people name things differently. cgroups, namespaces, UFS We are going to discuss containers, cgroups, namespace, UFS, hypervisor, user space, kernetl space and more.   When we say "kernel" we mean this.  We have the hardware, this is not the kernel, now above the hardware we have a few layers of software, imagine now two boxes. User mode is all the application you run while the kernel is the lower level is all the virtual memory management scheduling, connection to hardware devices, network drivers, it's basically the abstraction on top of the hardware + the basic services which allow this. One box is closer to the hardware and contains a few layers, the second box sits on top of the kernel box and contains

Recursion Trees Primer

Recursion trees. Controlling the fundamentals stands at the cornerstone of controlling a topic.  In our case in order to be a good developer its not enough or even not at all important to control the latest Java/JavaScript/big data technology but what's really important is the basics.  And the basics in computer science are maths, stats, algorithms and computer structure. Steve wosniak the co-founder of apple said the same, what gave him his relative advantage was his deep understanding of programming and computer structure, this is what gave him the ability to create computer's which are less costly than the competitors (not that there were many) and by the way there were 3 founders to apple company one responsible for the technical side, one for the product and sales (Steve Jobs) and the third responsible for the company structure and growth, each of the three extremely important, it was not only the two Steve's but that's a topic for another episode. And with t
