Java parallel streams vs IterativeStream

nragon
In my map functions i have an object containing a list which must be changed, executing some logic.
So, considering java 8 parallel streams would it be worth to use them or does IterativeStreams offer a better performance without java 8 streams parallel overhead?

Thanks

Hi,

How would you use IterativeStream? In Flink IterativeStream is a pipeline-level concept whereas your problem seems to be scoped to one user function.

Best,
Aljoscha

Iterate until all elements were changed perhaps. But just wanted to know if there areimplementations out there using java 8 streams, in cases where you want to parallelize a map function even if it is function scoped.
So, in my case, if the computation for each list element is to heavy, how can one parallelize it?

I think for that you would unpack to List of values, for example with a FlatMap<List<T>, T>. This would emit each element of the list as a separate element. Then, downstream operations can operate on each element individually and you will exploit parallelism in the cluster.

This post was updated on .
That would work but after FlatMap<List<T>, T> I would have to downstream all elements into one.

Map function would go from
for (Attribute dimension : this.dimensions) {
      this.transformed.setParameterNoCheck(dimension.getName(), dimension.get(this.context));
    }
return this.transformed

to 

this.dimensions.parallelStream().forEach(dimension -> this.transformed.setParameterNoCheck(dimension.getName(), dimension.get(this.context)));
return this.transformed

I see, I’m afraid that is not easily possible except by doing a custom stateful function that waits for all elements to arrive and combines them again.

Another thing you could look at is the async I/O operator: https://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-release-1.3/dev/stream/asyncio.html. You would not necessarily use it for I/O but spawn threads for processing your data in parallel.

Best,
Aljoscha

I've mentioned java 8 stream beacuse avoids leaving map, thus decreasing network io, if not chained, and takes advantage of multiple cpus. Guess will have to test it.

Ah yes, I forgot Java8 streams. That could probably be your best option. Yes!

I'll test with java 8 streams.

Thanks,
