Automatic Spark Master election 

Spark Master elections are automatically managed.

Spark Master elections are automatically managed, and do not require any manual configuration.

DSE Analytics clusters communicate with each other to elect one of the nodes as the Spark Master. The Master keeps track of each Spark Worker and application, storing the information in a system table.

For dsetool commands and options, see dsetool.
