Spark local mode

Spark local mode is one of the 4 ways to run Spark (the others are (i) standalone mode, (ii) YARN mode and (iii) MESOS)

The Web UI for jobs running in local mode by default can be found in: http://localhost:4040

You can change the URL for Spark Web UI – Jobs by setting the object pyspark.SparkConf.

The default spark.ui.port is 4040, we can change it to whatever we want. As in this example, I changed it into 4041.

The whole other configuration options can be found in Spark Configuration documentation.

from pyspark import SparkConf, SparkContext
SPARK_MASTER = "local[*]"

sparkConf = SparkConf().setAll([
("spark.cores.max", "4"),
("spark.executor.memory", "2G"),
("spark.ui.port", "4041")

sc = SparkContext(conf=sparkConf)
