Spark Streaming discretizes streams of data into micro-batches, each of which is further sub-divided into tasks and processed in parallel to improve job throughput. Previous work [2, 3] has lowered end-to-end latency in Spark Streaming. However, two causes of high tail latencies remain unaddressed: 1) data is not load-balanced across tasks, and 2) straggler tasks can increase end-to-end latency by 8 times more than the median task on a production cluster .We propose a feedback-control mechanism that allows frameworks to adaptively load-balance workloads across tasks according to their processing speeds. The task runtimes are thus equalized, lowering end-to-end tail latency. Further, this reduces load on machines that have transient resource bottlenecks, thus resolving the bottlenecks and preventing them from having an enduring impact on task runtimes.
