Parquet Writer

StreamableKNIME BigData File Format Extension version 3.7.0.v201812021522 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland

This node writes the KNIME data table into a Parquet file. The Parquet file can be written locally or on a remote file system.

For remote connections, the writer stores chunks locally and uploads them in parallel into a folder with the given name. The chunks size and the number of chunks that are allowed on local disc, are configurable in the "Chunk Upload" tab which is only enabled for remote file systems.

Options

Output location
A path on the local machine or remote server where the file is written.
Overwrite
If this option is selected the file will be overwritten if it exists
Check directory content
Enabled when using a remote connection and enabling the overwrite option. With this option enabled the node will fail if the content of the directory contains files that do not fit the file format suffix
File Compression
The compression codec used to write the Parquet file.

Chunk Upload

Chunk size in MB
The maximum size for an individual chunk.
Number of local chunks
The number of chunks that can be stored temporarily on disc, while the next chunk is written.
