PySpark StatusTracker

PySpark StatusTracker(jtracker) | Learn PySpark

1. Objective In our last PySpark tutorial, we discussed Pyspark Profiler. Today, in this PySpark Tutorial, “Introduction to PySpark StatusTracker” we will learn the concept of PySpark StatusTracker(jtracker). So, let’s begin with PySpark StatusTracker(jtracker). 2. What is PySpark StatusTracker(jtracker)? Basically, for monitoring job and stage progress, low-level status reporting APIs are there. However, these APIs offers very weak consistency semantics intentionally; So, we can say consumers of these APIs must be prepared to handle empty / missing information. Let’s understand PySpark StatusTracker with an example, […]
