The Spark cluster setup is guided by the values set in first performs basic operations like enabling ssh across machines, mounting ephemeral drives and also creates files named /root/spark-ec2/masters, and /root/spark-ec2/slaves. Following that every module listed in MODULES is initialized.

To add a new module, you will need to do the following:

a. Create a directory with the module's name

b. Optionally add a file named This is called before templates are configured and can be used to install any pre-requisites.

c. Add any files that need to be configured based on the cluster setup to templates/. The path of the file determines where the configured file will be copied to. Right now the set of variables that can be used in a template are


You can add new variables by modifying

d. Add a file named to launch any services on the master/slaves. This is called after the templates have been configured. You can use the environment variables $SLAVES to get a list of slave hostnames and /root/spark-ec2/copy-dir to sync a directory across machines.

e. Modify to add your module to the list of enabled modules.
