FAQ: What execution engine would be used for running Profiling jobs when pushed down to Hadoop cluster from Informatica DEI?

Informatica Data Engineering Integration (DEI), earlier known as 'Big Data Management' (BDM), supports execution of mappings in the Hadoop Environment. For running mappings in Hadoop Environments, one of the following execution engines can be chosen: 

  1. Spark Engine
  2. Blaze Engine
  3. Hive Engine ('Map Reduce' or 'Tez' modes) (Available in Pre-Informatica 10.2.2 versions and not available from Informatica 10.2.2 version onwards)

Profiling jobs can be pushed down to Hadoop environment using 'Hadoop Connection' from 'Informatica Developer'/'Analyst Tool'/'Enterprise Data Catalog' (EDC).

In Informatica versions before 10.4.0, when profiling jobs are pushed down into Hadoop cluster, profiling jobs would be executed using 'Blaze' engine. Starting from Informatica 10.4.0 version, it is also possible to use 'Spark' engine for running profiling jobs in Hadoop environment, in addition to 'Blaze' engine.
