Polybase MapReduce Containers

I have a post looking at how Polybase generates MapReduce containers:

Once we did that and I restarted all of the services, I ended up getting an interesting error message from SQL Server:

Msg 7320, Level 16, State 110, Line 2
Cannot execute the query “Remote Query” against OLE DB provider “SQLNCLI11” for linked server “(null)”. EXTERNAL TABLE access failed due to internal error: ‘Java exception raised on call to JobSubmitter_SubmitJob: Error [org.apache.hadoop.yarn.exceptions.InvalidResourceRequestException: Invalid resource request, requested memory < 0, or requested memory > max configured, requestedMemory=1536, maxMemory=512

The error message is pretty clear:  the Polybase service wants to create containers that are 1536 MB in size, but the maximum size I’m allowing is 512 MB.  Therefore, the Polybase MapReduce operation fails.

Long story short, I needed enough RAM to be able to give 4 1/2 GB to YARN for creating MapReduce containers in order to run my query.

Testing Kafka Streams Applications

Yeva Byzek continues her series on testing Kafka-based streaming applications: When you create a stream processing application with Kafka’s Streams API, you create a Topologyeither using the StreamsBuilder DSL or the low-level Processor API. Normally, the topology runs with the KafkaStreams class, which connects to a Kafka cluster and begins processing when you call start(). For testing though, connecting to a running […]

Auto ML With SQL Server 2019 Big Data Clusters

Marco Inchiosa has a model scenario for using Big Data Clusters to scale out a machine learning problem: H2O provides popular open source software for data science and machine learning on big data, including Apache SparkTM integration. It provides two open source python AutoML classes: h2o.automl.H2OAutoML and pysparkling.ml.H2OAutoML. Both APIs use the same underlying algorithm implementations, […]
