Abstract

Have you ever tuned a Spark, Hive or Pig job? If yes, then you must know that it is a never ending cycle of executing the job, observing the running job, making sense out of hundreds of Spark/Hadoop metrics and then re-run it with the better parameters. Imagine doing this for tens of thousands of jobs. Manually doing performance optimization at this scale is tedious, requires significant expertise and results into wasting a lot of resources to do the same task repeatedly. As Spark/Hadoop is the natural choice for any data processing, with many naive users, it becomes important to develop a tool to automatically tune Spark/Hadoop jobs.

At LinkedIn we tried to solve the problem using Dr. Elephant, an open-sourced self-serve performance monitoring and tuning tool for Spark and Hadoop jobs. While it has proved to be very successful, it relies on the developer’s initiative to check and apply the recommendation manually. It also expects some expertise from developers to arrive at the optimal configuration using the recommendations.

In this talk we will discuss TuneIn, an Auto Tuning tool developed on top of Dr. Elephant, which overcomes the above mentioned limitations. We will describe how we took the best of various approaches taken by industry and academia, so far to solve this problem to come up with a framework, which doesn’t require any extra resources for tuning. We will discuss two approaches of auto tuning jobs, Heuristics Based Tuning and Optimization Based Tuning. We will also talk about tuning framework, which is easily extendable to integrate different approaches (Machine Learning Based Tuning) and execution frameworks (TensorFlow). We will also talk about the lessons learned and the future roadmap.
