I have been wanting to test Apache Kafka for sometime now and finally got around to it! In this blog post I give a very short introduction on what is Kafka, installation & configuration of Kafka cluster and finally benchmarking few near real-world scenarios on OpenStack VM's
This post reports performance tests for a few popular data formats and storage engines available in the Hadoop ecosystem: Apache Avro, Apache Parquet, Apache HBase and Apache Kudu. This exercise evaluates space efficiency, ingestion performance, analytic scans and random data lookup for a workload of interest at CERN Hadoop service.
Integrating Hadoop and Elasticsearch – Part 2 – Writing to and Querying Elasticsearch from Apache Spark
In the part 2 of 'Integrating Hadoop and Elasticsearch' blogpost series we look at bridging Apache Spark and Elasticsearch. I assume that you have access to Hadoop and Elasticsearch clusters and you are faced with the challenge of bridging these two distributed systems. As spark code can be written in scala, python and java, we look at the setup, configuration and code snippets across all these three languages both in batch and interactively.
