Analyzing Real-Time Data

Manjeet Chayel connects Spark Streaming to Amazon Kinesis and shows how to analyze the data in real time:

To use this post to play around with streaming data, you need an AWS account and AWS CLI configured on your machine. The entire pattern can be implemented in few simple steps:

  1. Create an Amazon Kinesis stream.

  2. Spin up an EMR cluster with Hadoop, Spark, and Zeppelin applications from advanced options.

  3. Use a Simple Java producer to push random IoT events data into the Amazon Kinesis stream.

  4. Connect to the Zeppelin notebook.

  5. Import the Zeppelin notebook from GitHub.

  6. Analyze and visualize the streaming data.

This is a good way of getting started with streaming data.  I’ve grown quite fond of notebooks in the short time that I’ve used them, as they make it very easy for people who know what they’re doing to provide code and information to people who want to know what they’re doing.
