Snowplow S3 Loader
There are 2 file formats supported:
The records are treated as raw byte arrays. Elephant Bird's
BinaryBlockWriter class is used to serialize them as a Protocol Buffers array (so it is clear where one record ends and the next begins) before compressing them.
The compression process generates both compressed .lzo files and small .lzo.index files (splittable LZO). Each index file contain the byte offsets of the LZO blocks in the corresponding compressed file, meaning that the blocks can be processed in parallel.
The records are treated as byte arrays containing UTF-8 encoded strings (whether CSV, JSON or TSV). New lines are used to separate records written to a file. This format can be used with the Snowplow Kinesis Enriched stream, among other streams.
host$ git clone https://github.com/snowplow/snowplow-s3-loader.git host$ cd snowplow-s3-loader host$ vagrant up && vagrant ssh guest$ cd /vagrant guest$ sbt test
You must have
lzop-dev installed. In Ubuntu, install them like this:
host$ sudo apt-get install lzop liblzo2-dev
NOTE: These are already installed in the Vagrant quickstart environment.
Command Line Interface
The Snowplow S3 Loader has the following command-line interface:
snowplow-s3-loader: Version 0.6.0 Usage: snowplow-s3-loader [options] --config <filename>
Create your own config file:
guest$ cd /vagrant guest$ cp examples/config.hocon.sample my.conf
You will need to edit all fields in the config. Consult this portion of the setup guide on how to fill in the fields.
Next, start the sink, making sure to specify your new config file:
guest$ java -jar snowplow-s3-loader-0.6.0.jar --config my.conf
