  1. chapter 2 notebook shold have right path: "val lines = sc.textFile("file:///dbfs/learning-spark-master/README.md") // Create an RDD ..."

    Learning Spark Chapter 2 Examples in Scala

    Example 2-2. Scala line count

    should have right path
    val lines = sc.textFile("file:///dbfs/learning-spark-master/README.md") // Create an RDD called lines

    Because this was executed from Initial Setup in the Overview notebook when the following was evaluated:
    os.system("cd /dbfs; rm master.zip; rm -rf learning-spark-master; wget https://github.com/databricks/learning-spark/archive/master.zip; unzip master.zip;ls")

  2. Product Feedback page (this page) showed date / time stamp on suggestions / comments

    Without a date/time stamp its hard to tell when an idea turned into a planned item or when a response to feedback was submitted.

  4. Provide Integration GitHub Service at the basic level rather then just the Professional Level.

    If you enable the GitHub integration option at the basic account level service, it would help us feel safe that we can invest our time and energy into developing our solution on DataBricks. As we grow we will move up to the pro level account. But right now we are unclear if our work is backed up and safe. This should not be a cost to you at all. So please please provide. Thanks.

    All databases are running distributed with a replica in another datacenter. Furthermore, we do database dumps every day and upload/save to S3, which has eleven 9 durability.

  5. Small Security Issue - Restrict DBC login screen to SSL

    DBC has a login screen where it is possible to access it via non-SSL. First it redirects you to ssl, but then once you have the jsessionid, you can request the non-SSL page.

    This sets off warnings and alerts when our security team does an audit of our publicly reachable servers.

    The request is to please always restrict the login screen to SSL.

    This is now possible. Inside Databricks, click on the question mark at the top right and then enter your search term where it says"Search Guide & Forum". This will search all the forum posts and give you links to the posts.

  7. Libraries did not fill "Workspace" display

    We have a lot of libraries loaded and they fill the workspace pull-right. Also, the same library name can appear multiple times. It would be great if there were some more logical and informative display of the libraries.

    The best practice we see from other customers is to organize the libraries into sub-folders. Otherwise it looks as if the workspace is “polluted” with a lot of libraries. We are simultaneously looking at improving our library management.

  8. "Home" item in sidebar should go to... my home directory

    The icon is already the same, now just make the functionality match as well :)

  11. now() in sql returned the current date

    There doesn't seem to be a way to get the current date in sql. now() returns a null pointer exception.

  12. Allow terminating of clusters before they are started

    Sometimes it just takes ages to get spot clusters and we give up and create on-demand. In that case we need to remember to kill the spot one once it's up.

  13. If would be great if standard IPython notebook (as opposed to dbc format) could be imported to DBC.

    If would be great if standard IPython notebook (as opposed to dbc format) could be imported to DBC. Why change the standard ipynb files? That allows users to test their ideas on any platform and then import to DBC

    You should be able to copy/paste cells in notebooks without drag ‘n drop. That’s especially useful for either (a) big cells with a lot of text in them or (b) cells which you want to move long distances.

  16. auto-shutdown and auto-relaunch Cluster out of office hours and week days

    The idea is that when we create a Cluster that we use only for data/model exploration we can select an option to insure the cluster gets shut down out of business hours/days and get relaunched in time for the next day of work
    Of course we can do this manually but 99% of the time we would forget

    Happy to announce that the most voted for feature has been released. You can now setup auto-termination on any cluster that is launched. The timeout time for shutdown is configurable.

  17. Job status columns is displayed on the Jobs Page

    In the Jobs page, it would be good to have a new column for the status of the most recent job

  18. Support Choosing Instance Types that are optimized for CPU

    It would be great if I could choose to create a Spark cluster on instance types that are optimized for CPU.

  19. Better BLAS library was installed on all the nodes

    It would be good to have something like OpenBLAS compiled and installed on all the Spark nodes by default. https://github.com/xianyi/OpenBLAS

    This can make a bunch of ML workloads run much faster

  20. UI Issue could not select cluster to attach

    I am in Cambridge ML meetup. In the workshop when I tried to select my cluster to attach, i could not select it because there are lot clusters available my cluster comes in the bottom. The UI not supporting in the dropdown of clusters. So I never see my cluster to select it. I am using Mac - Chrome. Dashboards should consider more about usability.
