Class Sample



  • public class Sample
    extends Object
    PTransforms for taking samples of the elements in a PCollection, or samples of the values associated with each key in a PCollection of KVs.

    • Method Detail

      • any

        public static <T> PTransform<PCollection<T>,PCollection<T>> any(long limit)
        Sample#any(long) takes a PCollection<T> and a limit, and produces a new PCollection<T> containing up to limit elements of the input PCollection.

        If limit is less than or equal to the size of the input PCollection, then all the input's elements will be selected.

        All of the elements of the output PCollection should fit into main memory of a single worker machine. This operation does not run in parallel.

        Example of use:

         
         PCollection<String> input = ...;
         PCollection<String> output = input.apply(Sample.<String>any(100));
          
        Type Parameters:
        T - the type of the elements of the input and output PCollections
        Parameters:
        limit - the number of elements to take from the input
      • fixedSizeGlobally

        public static <T> PTransform<PCollection<T>,PCollection<Iterable<T>>> fixedSizeGlobally(int sampleSize)
        Returns a PTransform that takes a PCollection<T>, selects sampleSize elements, uniformly at random, and returns a PCollection<Iterable<T>> containing the selected elements. If the input PCollection has fewer than sampleSize elements, then the output Iterable<T> will be all the input's elements.

        Example of use:

         
         PCollection<String> pc = ...;
         PCollection<Iterable<String>> sampleOfSize10 =
             pc.apply(Sample.fixedSizeGlobally(10));
          
        Type Parameters:
        T - the type of the elements
        Parameters:
        sampleSize - the number of elements to select; must be >= 0
      • fixedSizePerKey

        public static <K,V> PTransform<PCollection<KV<K,V>>,PCollection<KV<K,Iterable<V>>>> fixedSizePerKey(int sampleSize)
        Returns a PTransform that takes an input PCollection<KV<K, V>> and returns a PCollection<KV<K, Iterable<V>>> that contains an output element mapping each distinct key in the input PCollection to a sample of sampleSize values associated with that key in the input PCollection, taken uniformly at random. If a key in the input PCollection has fewer than sampleSize values associated with it, then the output Iterable<V> associated with that key will be all the values associated with that key in the input PCollection.

        Example of use:

         
         PCollection<KV<String, Integer>> pc = ...;
         PCollection<KV<String, Iterable<Integer>>> sampleOfSize10PerKey =
             pc.apply(Sample.<String, Integer>fixedSizePerKey());
          
        Type Parameters:
        K - the type of the keys
        V - the type of the values
        Parameters:
        sampleSize - the number of values to select for each distinct key; must be >= 0
