RocksDB State Store¶
RocksDB can be used as a state store backend in Spark Structured Streaming.
RocksDB's Notable Features
RocksDB is an embeddable persistent key-value store with the following features:
- Uses a log structured database engine
- Keys and values are arbitrarily-sized byte streams
- Optimized for fast, low latency storage (flash drives and high-speed disk drives) for high read/write rates
The full documentation is currently on the GitHub wiki.
org.apache.spark.sql.execution.streaming.state.RocksDBStateStoreProvider enables RocksDBStateStoreProvider as the default StateStoreProvider.
RocksDB is used to create a native logger and configure a logging level accordingly.
