These properties are used to configure tPredict running in the Spark Streaming Job framework.

The Spark Streaming tPredict component belongs to the Machine Learning family.

The component in this framework is available in Talend Real Time Big Data Platform and Talend Data Fabric.

Basic settings

Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to Repository. When you create a Spark Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the fields.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.

Depending on the model you select to use, a corresponding read-only column is automatically added to the schema and is used to carry the result records of the prediction.

Model type

Select the type of the model you want tPredict to use. This automatically adds a read-only column to the schema of tPredict to carry the result records of the prediction.

Define a storage configuration component

Select the configuration component to be used to provide the configuration information for the connection to the target file system such as HDFS.

If you leave this check box clear, the target file system is the local system.

The configuration component to be used must be present in the same Job. For example, if you have dropped a tHDFSConfiguration component in the Job, you can select it to write the result in a given HDFS system.

The Define a storage configuration component check box is displayed when you select this radio box. Select it to connect to the filesystem to be used.

Model on filesystem

Select this radio box if the model to be used is stored on a file system. The button for browsing does not work with the Spark Local mode; if you are using the Spark Yarn or the Spark Standalone mode, ensure that you have properly configured the connection in a configuration component in the same Job, such as tHDFSConfiguration.

In the HDFS folder field that is displayed, enter the HDFS URI in which this model is stored.

The Define a storage configuration component check box is displayed when you select this radio box. Select it to connect to the filesystem to be used.

Model computed in the current Job

Select this radio box and then select the model training component that is used in the same Job to create the model to be used.

Usage

Usage rule

This component is used as an intermediate step.

This component, along with the Spark Streaming component Palette it belongs to, appears only when you are creating a Spark Streaming Job.

Note that in this documentation, unless otherwise explicitly stated, a scenario presents only Standard Jobs, that is to say traditional Talend data integration Jobs.

Spark Connection

You need to use the Spark Configuration tab in the Run view to define the connection to a given Spark cluster for the whole Job. In addition, since the Job expects its dependent jar files for execution, you must specify the directory in the file system to which these jar files are transferred so that Spark can access these files:
  • Yarn mode: when using Google Dataproc, specify a bucket in the Google Storage staging bucket field in the Spark configuration tab; when using other distributions, use a tHDFSConfiguration component to specify the directory.

  • Standalone mode: you need to choose the configuration component depending on the file system you are using, such as tHDFSConfiguration or tS3Configuration.

This connection is effective on a per-Job basis.
