2 2 Outline Hadoop in Yahoo! Common types of applications on Hadoop Sample applications in: Content Analysis Web Graph Mail Spam Filtering Search Advertising User Modeling on Hadoop Challenges and Practical Considerations

3 3 Hadoop in Yahoo

4 4 By the Numbers About 30,000 nodes in tens of clusters 1 Node = 4 *1 TB disk, 8 cores, 16 GB RAM as a typical configuration. Largest single cluster of about 4000 nodes 4 tiers of clusters Application research and development Production clusters Hadoop platform development and testing Proof of concepts and ad-hoc work Over 1000 users across research, engineering, operations etc. Running more than 100,000 jobs per day More than 3 PB of data Compressed and un-replicated volume Currently running Hadoop 0.20

5 5 Advantages Wide applicability of the M/R computing model Many problems in internet domain can be solved by data parallelism High throughput Stream through 100 TB of data in less than 1 hour Applications that took weeks earlier complete in hours Research prototyping, development, and production deployment systems are (almost) identical Scalable, economical, fault-tolerant Shared resource with common infrastructure operations

6 6 Entities in internet eco-system Content (pages, blogs etc.) Search Engine Search Advertising Content/Display Advertising User Queries Ads (Text, Display etc.) Browses SearchesInteracts Leverage Hadoop extensively in all of these domains in Yahoo!

7 7 Common Types of Applications

8 8 Common applications on Hadoop in Yahoo! 1.Near real-time data pipelines Backbone for analytics, reporting, research etc. Multi-step pipelines to create data feeds from logs Web-servers - page content, layout and links, clicks, queries etc. Ad servers – ad serving opportunity data, impressions Clicks, beacons, conversion data servers Process large volume of events Tens of billions events/day Tens of TB (compressed) data/day Latencies of tens of minutes to a few hours. Continuous runs of jobs working on chunks of data

9 9 Example: Data Pipelines Tens of billions events/day Parse and Transform event streams Join clicks with views Filter out robots Aggregate, Sort, Partition Data Quality Checks Analytics Ads and Content User Profiles User Sessions Network analytics Experiment reporting Optimize traffic &engagement User session & click-stream Path and funnel analysis User segment analysis Interest Measurements Modeling and Scoring Experimentation

10 10 Common applications on Hadoop in Yahoo! 2.High throughput engine for ETL and reporting applications Put large data sources (e.g. logs) on HDFS Run canned aggregations, transformations, normalizations Load reports to RDBMS/data marts Hourly and Daily batch jobs 3.Exploratory data research Ad-hoc analysis and insights into data Leveraging Pig and custom Map Reduce scripts Pig is based on Pig Latin (up-coming support for SQL) Procedural language, designed for data parallelism Supports nested relational data structures

11 11 Common applications on Hadoop in Yahoo! 4.Indexing for efficient retrieval Build and update indices of content, ads etc. Updated in batch mode and pushed for online serving Efficient retrieval of content and ads during serving 5.Offline modeling Supervised and un-supervised learning algorithms Outlier detection methods Association rule mining techniques Graph analysis methods Time series analysis etc.

21 21 User Modeling on Hadoop

22 22 User activities Large dimensionality of possible user activities But a typical user has a sparse activity vector Attributes of the events change over time Building a pipeline on Hadoop to model user interests from activities AttributePossible ValuesTypical values per user Pages~ MM10 – 100 Queries~ 100s of MMFew Ads~ 100s of thousands10s

23 23 User Modeling Pipeline 5 main components to train, score and evaluate models 1. Data Generation a.Data Acquisition b.Feature and Target Generation 2. Model Training 3. Offline Scoring and Evaluation 4. Batch scoring and upload to online serving 5. Dashboard to monitor the online performance

26 26 1a. Data Acquisition Event Feeds User event Normalized Events (NE) User event User event Project relevant event attributes Filter irrelevant events Tag and Transform Categorization Topic …. HDFS User event User event User event Map Operations

28 28 1b. Feature and Target Generation Features: Summaries of user activities over a time window Aggregates, Moving averages, Rates etc. over moving time windows Support online updates to existing features Targets: Constructed in the offline model training phase Typically user actions in the future time period indicating interest Clicks/Click-through rates on ads and content Site and page visits Conversion events – Purchases, Quote requests etc. – Sign-ups to newsletters, Registrations etc.

31 31 1b. Joining Features and Targets Low target rates Typical response rates are in the range of 0.01% ~ 1% Many users have no interest activities in the target window First construct the targets Compute the feature vector only for users with targets Reduces the need for computing features for users without target actions Allows stratified sampling of users with different target and feature attributes

32 32 2. Model Training Supervised models trained using a variety of techniques Regressions Different flavors: Linear, Logistic, Poisson etc. Constraints on weights Different regularizations: L 1 and L 2 Decision trees Used for both regression and ranking problems Boosted trees Naïve Bayes Support vector machines Commonly used in text classification, query categorization etc. Online learning algorithms

33 33 2. Model Training Maximum Entropy modeling Log-linear link function. Classification problems in large dimensional, sparse features Constrained Random Fields Sequence labeling and named-entity recognition problems Some of these algorithms are implemented in Mahout Not all algorithms are easy to implement in MR framework Train one model per node. Each node can train model for one target response

34 34 3. Offline Scoring and Evaluation Apply weights from model training phase to features from Feature generation component Mapper operations only Janino* equation editor Embedded compiler can compile arbitrary scoring equations. Can also embed any class invoked during scoring Can modify features on the fly before scoring Evaluation metrics Sort by scores and compute metrics in reducer Precision vs. Recall curve Lift charts *

38 38 Challenges and Practical Considerations

39 39 Current challenges Limited size of name-node File and block meta-data in HDFS is in RAM on name-node On name-node with 64Gb RAM ~ 100 million file blocks and 60 million files Upper limit of 4000 node limit cluster Adding more reducers leads to a large number of small files Copying data in/out of HDFS Limited by read/write rates of external file systems High latency for small jobs Overhead to set up may be large for small jobs

40 40 Practical considerations Reduce amount of data transfer from mapper to reducer There is still disk write/read in going from mapper to reducer Mapper output = Reducer input files can become large Can run out of disk space for intermediate storage Project a subset of relevant attributes in mapper to send to reducer Use combiners Compress intermediate data Distribution of keys Reducer can become a bottleneck for common keys Use Partitioner to control distribution of map records to reducers E.g. distribute mapper records with common keys across multiple reducers in a round robin manner

41 41 Practical considerations Judicious partitioning of data Multiple files helps parallelism, but hit name-node limits Smaller number of files keeps name-node happy but at the expense of parallelism Less ideal for distributed computing algorithms requiring communications (e.g. distributed decision trees) MPI on top of the cluster for communication
