Use OSS as Deep Storage for Pinot

Configure AliCloud Object Storage Service (OSS) as Pinot deep storage

OSS can be used as HDFS deep storage for Apache Pinot without implement OSS file system plugin. You should follow the steps below; 1. Configure hdfs-site.xml and core-site.xml files. After that, put these configurations under any desired path, then set the value of pinot.<node>.storage.factory.oss.hadoop.conf config on the controller/server configs to this path.

For hdfs-site.xml; you do not have to give any configuration;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<configuration>
</configuration>

For core-site.xml; you have to give OSS access/secret and bucket configurations like below;

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
<property>
<name>fs.defaultFS</name>
<value>oss://your-bucket-name/</value>
</property>
<property>
<name>fs.oss.accessKeyId</name>
<value>your-access-key-id</value>
</property>
<property>
<name>fs.oss.accessKeySecret</name>
<value>your-access-key-secret</value>
</property>
<property>
<name>fs.oss.impl</name>
<value>com.aliyun.emr.fs.oss.OssFileSystem</value>
</property>
<property>
<name>fs.oss.endpoint</name>
<value>your-oss-endpoint</value>
</property>
</configuration>

2. In order to access OSS, find your HDFS jars related to OSS and put them under the PINOT_DIR/lib. You can use jars below but be careful about versions to avoid conflict.

  • smartdata-aliyun-oss

  • smartdata-hadoop-common

  • guava

3. Set OSS deep storage configs on controller.conf and server.conf;

Controller config

controller.data.dir=oss://your-bucket-name/path/to/segments
controller.local.temp.dir=/path/to/local/temp/directory
controller.enable.split.commit=true
pinot.controller.storage.factory.class.oss=org.apache.pinot.plugin.filesystem.HadoopPinotFS
pinot.controller.storage.factory.oss.hadoop.conf.path=path/to/conf/directory/
pinot.controller.segment.fetcher.protocols=file,http,oss
pinot.controller.segment.fetcher.oss.class=org.apache.pinot.common.utils.fetcher.PinotFSSegmentFetcher

Server config

pinot.server.instance.enable.split.commit=true
pinot.server.storage.factory.class.oss=org.apache.pinot.plugin.filesystem.HadoopPinotFS
pinot.server.storage.factory.oss.hadoop.conf.path=path/to/conf/directory/
pinot.server.segment.fetcher.protocols=file,http,oss
pinot.server.segment.fetcher.oss.class=org.apache.pinot.common.utils.fetcher.PinotFSSegmentFetcher

Example Job Spec

Using the same HDFS deep storage configs and jars, you can read data from OSS, then create segments and push them to OSS again. An example standalone batch ingestion job can be like below;

executionFrameworkSpec:
name: 'standalone'
segmentGenerationJobRunnerClassName: 'org.apache.pinot.plugin.ingestion.batch.standalone.SegmentGenerationJobRunner'
segmentTarPushJobRunnerClassName: 'org.apache.pinot.plugin.ingestion.batch.standalone.SegmentTarPushJobRunner'
segmentUriPushJobRunnerClassName: 'org.apache.pinot.plugin.ingestion.batch.standalone.SegmentUriPushJobRunner'
segmentMetadataPushJobRunnerClassName: 'org.apache.pinot.plugin.ingestion.batch.standalone.SegmentMetadataPushJobRunner'
jobType: SegmentCreationAndMetadataPush
inputDirURI: 'oss://your-bucket-name/input'
includeFileNamePattern: 'glob:**/*.csv'
outputDirURI: 'oss://your-bucket-name/output'
overwriteOutput: true
