Working with Hadoop YARN Cluster Manager

The SnappyData embedded cluster uses its own cluster manager and as such cannot be managed using the YARN cluster manager. However, you can start the Spark cluster with the YARN cluster manager, which can interact with the SnappyData cluster in the Smart Connector Mode.


We assume that Apache Hadoop and YARN are already installed, and you want to bring in SnappyData cluster to work with YARN.

You need to set the following environment variables:

export HADOOP_CONF_DIR=$HADOOP_HOME/etc/hadoop
export YARN_CONF_DIR=$HADOOP_HOME/etc/hadoop

Launching spark-shell with YARN

Start a SnappyData default cluster using the ./sbin/ command

To run SnappyData quickstart example using YARN, do the following:

./bin/spark-shell --master yarn  --conf spark.snappydata.connection=localhost:1527 --conf spark.ui.port=4041 -i $SNAPPY_HOME/quickstart/scripts/Quickstart.scala


YARN is mentioned as a master url.

Submitting spark-jobs using YARN

  1. Create the required tables in the SnappyData cluster

    ./bin/ submit --lead localhost:8090 --app-name CreateAndLoadAirlineDataJob --class io.snappydata.examples.CreateAndLoadAirlineDataJob --app-jar $SNAPPY_HOME/examples/jars/quickstart.jar
  2. Run queries on the tables created from CreateAndLoadAirlineDataJob.

    ./bin/spark-submit --class io.snappydata.examples.AirlineDataSparkApp --master yarn --conf spark.snappydata.connection=localhost:1527 --conf spark.ui.port=4041 $SNAPPY_HOME/examples/jars/quickstart.jar
