Getting Started With Apache Mesos

Kevin Feasel



Mahesh Chand Kandpal shows how to install Apache Mesos:

Follow the following instructions to install required packages and other Mesos dependencies.

# Update the packages.
$ sudo apt-get update

# Install a few utility tools.
$ sudo apt-get install -y tar wget git

# Install the latest OpenJDK.
$ sudo apt-get install -y openjdk-8-jdk

# Install other Mesos dependencies.
$ sudo apt-get -y install build-essential python-dev python-six python-virtualenv libcurl4-nss-dev libsasl2-dev libsasl2-modules maven libapr1-dev libsvn-dev zlib1g-dev

Then, Anubhav Tarar shows how to install Spark on top of Mesos: got to $SPARK_HOME/CONF

inside your add following parameters

export MESOS_NATIVE_JAVA_LIBRARY= /usr/local/lib/
export SPARK_EXECUTOR_URI=/path/to/spark-2.2.0-bin-hadoop2.7.tgz

8. start spark shell with mesos as master

./bin/spark-shell –master mesos://

Mesos is a rather interesting platform, and if you’re getting interested in Hadoop and Spark, it’s worth learning about this.
