Cloud Dataproc API Examples

Open in Cloud Shell

Sample command-line programs for interacting with the Cloud Dataproc API.

See the tutorial on the using the Dataproc API with the Python client library for information on a walkthrough you can run to try out the Cloud Dataproc API sample code.

Note that while this sample demonstrates interacting with Dataproc via the API, the functionality demonstrated here could also be accomplished using the Cloud Console or the gcloud CLI.

list_clusters.py is a simple command-line program to demonstrate connecting to the Cloud Dataproc API and listing the clusters in a region.

submit_job_to_cluster.py demonstrates how to create a cluster, submit the pyspark_sort.py job, download the output from Google Cloud Storage, and output the result.

single_job_workflow.py uses the Cloud Dataproc InstantiateInlineWorkflowTemplate API to create an ephemeral cluster, run a job, then delete the cluster with one API request.

pyspark_sort.py_gcs is the same as pyspark_sort.py but demonstrates reading from a GCS bucket.

Prerequisites to run locally:

Go to the Google Cloud Console.

Under API Manager, search for the Google Cloud Dataproc API and enable it.

Set Up Your Local Dev Environment

To install, run the following commands. If you want to use virtualenv (recommended), run the commands within a virtualenv.

* pip install -r requirements.txt

Authentication

Please see the Google cloud authentication guide. The recommended approach to running these samples is a Service Account with a JSON key.

Environment Variables

Set the following environment variables:

GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT=your-project-id
REGION=us-central1 # or your region
CLUSTER_NAME=waprin-spark7
ZONE=us-central1-b

Running the samples

To run list_clusters.py:

python list_clusters.py $GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT --region=$REGION

submit_job_to_cluster.py can create the Dataproc cluster or use an existing cluster. To create a cluster before running the code, you can use the Cloud Console or run:

gcloud dataproc clusters create your-cluster-name

To run submit_job_to_cluster.py, first create a GCS bucket (used by Cloud Dataproc to stage files) from the Cloud Console or with gsutil:

gsutil mb gs://<your-staging-bucket-name>

Next, set the following environment variables:

BUCKET=your-staging-bucket
CLUSTER=your-cluster-name

Then, if you want to use an existing cluster, run:

python submit_job_to_cluster.py --project_id=$GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT --zone=us-central1-b --cluster_name=$CLUSTER --gcs_bucket=$BUCKET

Alternatively, to create a new cluster, which will be deleted at the end of the job, run:

python submit_job_to_cluster.py --project_id=$GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT --zone=us-central1-b --cluster_name=$CLUSTER --gcs_bucket=$BUCKET --create_new_cluster

The script will setup a cluster, upload the PySpark file, submit the job, print the result, then, if it created the cluster, delete the cluster.

Optionally, you can add the --pyspark_file argument to change from the default pyspark_sort.py included in this script to a new script.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
