In the past few years Amadeus has decided to rely on Big data platforms to develop advanced analytics modules and help airlines to improve their monitoring on performance insights. Big data platforms have matured since the introduction of Hadoop more than 10 years ago. Today Apache Spark represents the next-generation of data processing frameworks, providing ad- vanced in-memory capabilities and a directed acyclic graph (DAG) engine. Spark was developed to address the limitation of MapReduce, being 10–100 times faster in most of the data processing workloads. Nevertheless, Spark presents cases of application failures which are very difficult to interpret and, therefore, correct. This work presents a deep predictive data analysis per- formed on Spark application logs in order to discover failure patterns and speed up the issue resolutions. By studying the Spark framework and some recent scientific publications on the subject, three data sets with different granularity have been investigated: Job, Stage and Task. This real use case presented a challenging class imbalance scenario in the data, with the fail- ures representing the minority class with respect to the success. The report presents some recent techniques for data set rebalancing in order to perform binary classification tasks by means of well known machine learning models such as Random Forest and Neural Networks. The results of this exploratory analysis helped in the resolution of technical and functional issues, improving resource optimisation for large-scale data processing applications.
