hi Akhlis 

its a must to push data to a socket as i am using php as a web service to push data to socket , then spark catch the data on that socket and process it , is there a way to push data from php to kafka directly ?

hi Xiao,
1- requests are not similar at all , but they use solr and do commit sometimes 
2- no caching is required
3- the throughput must be very high yeah , the requests are tiny but the system may receive 100 request/sec , 
does kafka support listening to a socket ?

Hi, Tarek, 

It is hard to answer your question. Are these requests similar? Caching your results or intermediate results in your applications? Or does that mean your throughput requirement is very high? Throttling the number of concurrent requests? ...

As Akhil said, Kafka might help in your case. Otherwise, you need to read the designs or even source codes of Kafka and Spark Streaming. 

 Best wishes,

Instead of pushing your requests to the socket, why don't you push them to a Kafka or any other message queue and use spark streaming to process them?

Best Regards

Hi ,
i am using Scala , doing a socket program to catch multiple requests at same time and then call a function which uses spark to handle each process , i have a multi-threaded server to handle the multiple requests and pass each to spark , but there's a bottleneck as the spark doesn't initialize a sub task for the new request , is it even possible to do parallel processing using single spark job ?
