EasyMiner-Apriori-R

EasyMiner Core apriori version with R and MySQL

Installation

Pull the latest version from github

> git clone https://github.com/KIZI/EasyMiner-Apriori-R.git

Install SBT if not already installed: http://www.scala-sbt.org/0.13/tutorial/Installing-sbt-on-Linux.html

Run SBT with the following command in the project directory

cd EasyMiner-Apriori-R/
sbt

Make a one jar file by this sbt command:

> one-jar

On the server this service requires these dependecies:

  • Java 8
  • R 3.2.x (with arules, rJava, RJDBC, Rserve, rCBA)
  • MySQL Java JDBC Connector

Next instructions have been written only for the Debian distribution.

R installation instructions with all required dependencies

First, all following commands should be run as the root or with the sudo prefix.

  1. To get up-to-date R version add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list

    deb http://cran.r-project.org/bin/linux/debian wheezy-cran3/

  2. Install R

    apt-cache search ^r-.*
    apt-get update
    dpkg --get-selections | grep r-cran
    apt-get install r-base r-base-dev
    
  3. Export JAVA_HOME environment variable with a path to the JDK folder

  4. Run R with command: R

  5. Install rJava by this command: install.packages("rJava",dependencies=TRUE)

  6. If the last step fails you should configure Java variables by this shell command: R CMD javareconf. Then try to repeat the previous step and repeat.

  7. Run R CMD javareconf

  8. Install devtools by this command: install.packages("devtools",dependencies=TRUE)

  9. If the last step fails install these dependencies:

    apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
    apt-get install libxml2-dev
    
  10. Install other libraries:

    install.packages("RJDBC",dependencies=TRUE)
    install.packages("Rserve",dependencies=TRUE)
    install.packages("arules",dependencies=TRUE)
    install.packages("RSclient",dependencies=TRUE)
    library("devtools")
    devtools::install_github("jaroslav-kuchar/rCBA")
    

Start/Stop service for EasyMiner-Apriori-R

On the server side create some folder where this application will be located and copy the one jar file (target/scala-2.10/easyminer-apriori-r_2.10-1.0-one-jar.jar) to this folder with name: easyminer-apriori-r.jar

In this folder create a jdbc folder and download mysql jdbc connector (from https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/5.1.html) to this directory.

After this, create rserve-start.R, rserve-stop.R and run files with these contents:

rserve-start.R

library(Rserve)
Rserve()

rserve-stop.R

library(RSclient)
rsc <- RSconnect()
RSshutdown(rsc)

run

#!/bin/bash  
# Script for running Rest Easyminer

export R_SERVER=127.0.0.1
export R_JDBC=/path/to/mysql-jdbc-connector/folder
export REST_ADDRESS=localhost
export REST_PORT=8888
cd /path/to/easyminer-apriori-r/folder
java -Duser.country=US -Duser.language=en -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -jar easyminer-apriori-r.jar > rest.log 2>&1

In run specify absolute path to the application directory (at two places).

chmod +x run

The final easyminer-apriori-r folder should look like this:

  • jdbc
    • mysql-connector-java-5.1.34-bin.jar
  • easyminer-apriori-r.jar
  • rserve-start.R
  • rserve-stop.R
  • run

Finally create the easyminer-apriori-r file in /etc/init.d with this content:

#!/bin/bash
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          easyminer-apriori-r
# Required-Start:    $remote_fs $syslog
# Required-Stop:     $remote_fs $syslog
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: Easyminer apriori R rest
# Description:       Easyminer apriori R rest
### END INIT INFO

set -e

start() {
        echo "Starting easyminer apriori R rest service..."
        R CMD Rserve
        start-stop-daemon --start --make-pidfile --pidfile /var/run/easyminer-apriori-r.pid --background --exec /path/to/easyminer-apriori-r/folder/run
}

stop() {
        echo "Stopping easyminer apriori R rest service..."
        pkill -TERM -P $(cat /var/run/easyminer-apriori-r.pid)
        start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --oknodo --pidfile /var/run/easyminer-apriori-r.pid
        Rscript /path/to/easyminer-apriori-r/folder/rserve-stop.R
}

#
# main()
#

case "$1" in
  start)
        start
        ;;
  stop)
        stop
        ;;
  restart|reload|condrestart)
        stop
        start
        ;;
  *)
        echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart|reload}"
        exit 1
esac
exit 0

In easyminer-apriori-r specify absolute path to the application directory (at two places).

chmod +x run

After these steps you should be able to start/stop the rest service by these commands:

service easyminer-apriori-r start
service easyminer-apriori-r stop

If you get "package not found" error, try reinstalling all R packages with explicit definition of installation path, which is accessible by Rserve: In /etc/R/Renviron.site set R_LIBS to "/usr/local/lib/R/site-library" And then reinstall all R packages except devtools.

Service description

The basic API path is: /api/v1

There are only two REST operations within this service:

  1. Path: /api/v1/mine
    • Description: Create a mining task by some PMML task definition.
    • Method: POST
    • Required headers:
      • Accept: application/xml
      • Content-Type: application/xml; charset=UTF-8
    • Content body: PMML document with a task definition
    • Possible response codes:
      • 202: Task was accepted and is in progress. There is a path to the result page in the Location header.
      • 400: Wrong input task data.
      • 500: Wrong input task data or another internal error.
  2. Path: /api/v1/result/{taskId}
    • Description: Return some result of the mining task.
    • Method: GET
    • Possible response codes:
      • 200: The task has been finished. It returns a result in the PMML format.
      • 202: This task is still in progress.
      • 404: The task is not exist or has been picked up.
      • 500: An error during mining process.

Example use of the service

Some examples of input PMML files are in the examples resource folder.

  1. Move to the examples folder and replace the {{dbserver}}, {{dbname}} and {{dbpassword}} placeholders in test.sql

  2. Import test.sql to mysql, e.g. using these mysql commands

  3. Assuming that you have replaced {{dbname}} with experiments (your new database name):

create database experiments;
use experiments;
source test.sql;
  1. Send HTTP POST request containing test.pmml to the /api/v1/mine endpoint
 curl -X POST -d @test.pmml http://localhost:8888/api/v1/mine -H "Content-Type: application/xml; charset=UTF-8" -H "Accept: application/xml"

The endpoint returns 202 if all went down well. Note the value of the Location header.

This might look as follows:

/api/v1/result/199fdaef-97ab-4b09-a445-fa5e2b1467a3
  1. Send HTTP GET request to the /api/v1/result endpoint

The query URL might look as follows:

curl -X GET http://localhost:8888/api/v1/result/199fdaef-97ab-4b09-a445-fa5e2b1467a3
  1. The output should contain 11 AssociationRule elements
