To tackle the challenges of Big Data, a new breed of technologies has emerged. In this chapter, you will explore the "Big Data problem" and why a new. Summary Big Data teaches you to build big data systems using an architecture that takes advantage of clustered by Nathan Marz with James Warren. Lecture #1: Scalable Big Data Algorithms Textline, SequenceFile, Structured data in Thrift/. Protobuf/Avro . Proposed by Nathan Marz.
The following two chapters are dedicated to the design and implementation of a sample batch layer for website analytics. The individual features selected for this example are of varying complexity on differing dimensions. Pageview counts by URL per time period splits data on the time dimension, whereas unique visitors by URL per time period also requires keeping track of which user visited which page.
The unique visitors task is complicated by the fact that the same user can be identified with different IDs, and ID equivalence can come in after the user visits a page. The last feature,bounce-rate analysis, is again different in that it requires tracking the time difference between different visits by the same user. The implementation is explained in detail on actual code, which is a bit tedious at times, but would definitely be useful when you're working on actually implementing something.
The condensed data created by the batch layer is saved in the serving layer. The batch layer, by virtue of having access to all of the batch data, can condense it by the previously mentioned processes of aggregation and correlation so that there is not only less of it, but the data is mutated to enable efficient queries at the serving layer. These queries can require things like joins, grouping on columns, or calculating set cardinalities made faster by approximate algorithms such as HyperLogLog.
The serving layer has to be designed with the aim of presenting the condensed data in a reliable and rapid manner. Therefore, it should again be distributed to enable fault tolerance, and should allow indexes and collocation for fast retrieval of ranges of values. Afterwards, a sample serving layer that stores the results of the previously built batch layer is built, using ElephantDB as the storage engine. ElephantDB is a distributed key-value store explicitly built for exporting data out of Hadoop.
One of its major features is that creation of indexes is completely separate from serving them.
The indexes are created from shards of data at the end of a Hadoop job, and then fetched by the ElephantDB process during suitable load conditions. It is still not the ideal serving layer database, though, because it does not offer range queries or built-in HyperLogLog sets.
The last component of the lambda architecture is the speed layer. This layer is responsible for real-time processing of fresh data in a limited time window. In order to achieve speed, incremental algorithms are used in this layer, but error correction is still not done by correcting results, but by letting invalid results fall out of the window of processing. The requirements for view data storage in this layer is different from those in the serving layer.
Since incremental algorithms are used, batch creation of sharded indexes is not enough; random writes should also be allowed. The correctness requirements are also laxer.
Big Data: Principles and best practices of scalable realtime data systems
Since the results will be improved when the batch layer kicks in and processes the complete dataset once it falls out of the real time view window, approximations for the sake of speed are welcome in the speed layer. This is called eventual accuracy. Due to the use of incremental algorithms and the general availability requirements on all layers, speed layer storage faces particular complexities.
One of these is the CAP theorem, which concerns the consistency vs availability trade-off in the presence of network partitioning. Since distributed storage systems are used, partitioning is a condition that is definitely to be accounted for, and in the presence of partitioning, special methods called conflict-free replicated data types CRDTs have to be used to achieve incremental algorithms. There are two sets of tools that can be used to deal with these complexities.
The first is asynchronous updates, where the data in the store is updated not individually from each speed layer process, but queued in a bust which can also buffer for batch updates. Another is expiring the views that are old enough to be included in the batch layer, and can be incorrect. The sample implementation for the speed layer starts with a storage for realtime views, built on the Cassandra data store.
Cassandra is a column-oriented database which the authors prefer to describe as a map with sorted maps as values. The data is arranged in column groups,which are themselves key-value mappings, where the values are also sorted key-values themselves. These are collocated, so doing efficient queries of the first level of key-values is possible. A number of different patterns for processing data in real time and feeding into the data store are then discussed, such as single-consumer vs multi-consumer queues, one-at-a-time vs micro-batched processing, and queues-and-workers model vs the Storm model.
Storm was also written originally by Marz, and uses an alternative processing model for fast stream processing. The processing pipeline is represented in Storm as a topology that consists of streams sequences of tuples , spouts sources of tuples and bolts which take streams and produce other streams.
The path followed by a tuple in this topology corresponds to a directed acyclic graph DAG , which can be thought of as an alternative to queues, in that instead of maintaining intermediate queues that track what is processed and what is not, the position of a tuple in the DAG is stored.
This turns out to be a relatively cheap process, requiring only 20 bytes per tuple. When a tuple is found to fail, it is reprocessed starting from the spout. This way, an at-least-once guarantee similar to that provided by the queues can be given by Storm. In the illustration for speed layer stream processing, a Strom topology for calculating the uniques-over-time view, and another for bounce rate analysis are built, with the help of Kafka and Zookeeper. The first example serves to illustrate simple Storm topologies, whereas second is for more complicated micro-batch processing.
The first example is very Java-centric, also due to the fact that Zookeeper is used, and it reads like an exploded version of a more concise language.
The second example includes a more interesting discussion of one-at-a-time vs micro-batch processing. One-at-a-time guarantees that a tuple will be processed,but failure tracking and replay happen at a per-tuple level. It fails to give certain guarantees that are required in precision for certain kinds of tasks that require an exactly-once semantics, such as counting.
Exactly-once semantics can be achieved using micro-batch processing, in which batches of tuples are processed together, and the state is stored in terms of IDs for these batches. Each bolt stores the ID of the last batch that it processed, and when a batch errors,whether it was processed can be found by comparing IDs. In the demonstration section, the bounce rate analysis task is implemented using Trident, a library for building pipelines on Storm, Kafka and Cassandra.
