Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIG-4609) PIG : How to use counter in pig script
Date Fri, 19 Jun 2015 02:06:00 GMT

Michael Howard commented on PIG-4609:
-------------------------------------

I am also interested in using counters in pig. 
I posted the message below to user@pig.apache.org on 2015-06-18. 

Thus far I have only received one response, saying that the PigStatusReporter does not asynchronously
update the counters. 

----
accessing custom counters during execution of pig job
----
My questions relate to custom "counters" in order to dynamically monitor progress during execution
of a pig job. 

I would like to increment some custom counters in the context of pig UDFs.
I would like to access these counters during execution under differnt ExecTypes ... local/mapreduce/tez

I see that PigStatusReporter.getInstance().incrCounter(...) is the recommended way to increment
counters so that they are accessible under both MR and tez execution models. 

I do not see how one can fetch the current value of a counter during execution via PigRunner
or PigServer. 
I expected to find access to counters under PigStats, but have been unable to locate a way
to access counters. 

Q: How does one retrieve current values of counters during execution of a pig script? 


Thanks,
Michael

> Hi There,
> How can I use counter to count the total #of records processed through pig script. 
> I know that it can be achieved by writing & invoking a UDF from pig script or by
using GROUPBY & COUNT(), but here I don't want to go this way.
> I need the way in PIG like the way we are accessing the counter as 
> context.getCounter(MyCounters.Counter).increment(1);
