8 Ways to Optimize AWS Glue Jobs in a Nutshell

  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

How to Find Folder Space in Linux Easily

Here's an example that shows how to use find command to get directory utilized space in Linux. Many of a time during production support, or when crontab jobs failed, the reasons behind is space shortage of a directory.

Folder space

The find is handy you can use to get utilized space of a directory. That helps you to delete unnecessary files (that actually make some space).

Linux find command

Here's the find command that I have used in our project. You will find here the detailed explanation of this command and how to use it.

find /home/srini -xdev -ls | sort +6rn | head -20

Part#1: Directory path

In the first part,  after the find you need to give the directory's path for which folder you are going to find space.

Part#2: Option -xdev

The second part is -xdev, which gives the space usage of all the subdirectories.

Part#3: Option -ls

The next part is the -ls option that provides a sorted list of all the subdirectories. 

Part#4: Sort command

Then, the sort command sorts based on the value +6rn.

Sort options

-n Sort numerically (10 will sort after 2), ignore blanks and tabs 
-r Reverse the order of sort 
-f Sort upper- and lowercase together 
+x Ignore first x fields when sorting

Part#5: Option +xrn

The value +6 states to ignore 6 columns in the sort. The option +rn sorts in descending order of memory.

Sort command

Part#6: Option head -20

The head -20 gets the top 20 rows of directories details.

The command you can use to find the folders which takes more space.

Tip#1 I have gone through the best books and Udemy courses. I am giving here for your reference. Here is the book on Bash scripting and Udemy course is Bash Mastery helpful to know more.
