8 Ways to Optimize AWS Glue Jobs in a Nutshell

Image
  Improving the performance of AWS Glue jobs involves several strategies that target different aspects of the ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) process. Here are some key practices. 1. Optimize Job Scripts Partitioning : Ensure your data is properly partitioned. Partitioning divides your data into manageable chunks, allowing parallel processing and reducing the amount of data scanned. Filtering : Apply pushdown predicates to filter data early in the ETL process, reducing the amount of data processed downstream. Compression : Use compressed file formats (e.g., Parquet, ORC) for your data sources and sinks. These formats not only reduce storage costs but also improve I/O performance. Optimize Transformations : Minimize the number of transformations and actions in your script. Combine transformations where possible and use DataFrame APIs which are optimized for performance. 2. Use Appropriate Data Formats Parquet and ORC : These columnar formats are efficient for storage and querying, signif

These Tips Helpful to Remove Python List and Dictionary Duplicates

In this post, I have shared top ideas to remove duplicates from the list. Those are with Append and Dictionary.


Python: How to Remove Duplicates From List

1. How to Remove Duplicates with Append

# Here is a list with duplicates

list_with_duplicates = [1,2,3,12,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,7,8,9]

It is simple if you follow the first-approach - brute force approach:

list_without_duplicates = []

for pd in list_with_duplicates:
  if pd not in list_without_duplicates:
      list_without_duplicates.append(pd)
print(list_without_duplicates)

Result:

[1, 2, 3, 12, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]

This method has performance issues when the list is bigger in size. 

Real-time.

Idea 1:  Remove Duplicates Using Append.



2. How to Remove Duplicates with Dictionary


# Here is you can convert a list to a dictionary

dict_without_duplicates = dict(zip(list_with_duplicates, list_with_duplicates))
print(dictionary_without_duplicates)

Result:

{1: 1, 2: 2, 3: 3, 12: 12, 4: 4, 5: 5, 6: 6, 7: 7, 8: 8, 9: 9}


Real-time.

Idea 2: Remove Duplicates Using Dictionary.


Once again, this works and has the advantage of taking less space than duplicating the entire list. 


Notes: Of course, we still need to convert it back to a list when we did, which will be somewhat painful since we must extract the keys and add them to a list.
