Setting Up Your Environment
Create and set up your Spark cluster
To start, follow the first three steps in Getting Started with Instaclustr Spark & Cassandra:
- Provision a cluster with Cassandra
- Set up a Spark Client (but changing the configuration to “AMI: Ubuntu Server 167.04 LTS (HVM), SSD Volume Type”).
- Configure Client Network Access
Ensure that your Spark client machine has Java 8 installed and selected as the preferred Java version.
sudo apt update
sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk
Install Spark 2.1.1:
tar -xf spark-2.1.1-bin-hadoop2.7.tgz
Start the Thrift Server
./start-thriftserver.sh --master spark://<spark_master_IP1>:7077,<spark_master_IP2>:7077,<spark_master_IP3>:7077
Query using Beeline
Start beeline (included with Spark):
Once Beeline starts, connect to the Thrift Server:
Password: <empty> (just press enter when prompted).
Now run your queries as you wish!
