Real-Time Log Processing using Spark Streaming Architecture

Real-Time Log Processing using Spark Streaming Architecture

In this Spark project, we are going to bring processing to the speed layer of the lambda architecture which opens up capabilities to monitor application real time performance, measure real time comfort with applications and real time alert in case of security


Each project comes with 2-5 hours of micro-videos explaining the solution.

Project Description

A while back, we did web server access log processing using spark and hive. However, that processing was batch processing and in the lambda architecture, we will only be able to operate in the batch and serving layer.

In this big data project, we are going one step further by bringing processing to the speed layer of the lambda architecture which opens up more capabilities. One of such capability will be ability monitor application real time perform or measure real time comfort with applications or real time alert in case of security breach.

The abilities and functionalities will be explored using Spark Streaming in a streaming architecture. 

Note: It is worthy of note that the Cloudera QuickStart VM does not have Kafka. However, like in our objective, we will make the case for using Kafka but our implementation will not be using Kafka. Instead, we will integrate the log agent with Spark streaming in this big data project.
