Scaling the DataStax Apache Pulsar™ Connector

Use the Apache Pulsar™ administration tool to increase or decrease the number of workers to run for a given sink using the parallelism factor. You can specify the parallelism factor during creation of a Pulsar sink, and you can modify it after the fact as well. The default parallelism factor is 1.

Configuring parallelism during sink creation

To configure parallelism during sink creation, add the --parallelism flag to the pulsar-admin sinks create command and specify the number of workers:

Example create a Pulsar sink with a parallelism factor of 3:

bin/pulsar-admin sinks create \
	--name dse-sink-kv \
  --classname com.datastax.oss.sink.pulsar.StringCassandraSinkTask \
	--parallelism: 3 \
	--sink-config-file conf/qs.yml \
	--sink-type cassandra-enhanced \
	--tenant public \
	--namespace default \
	--inputs "persistent://public/default/example_topic"
"Created successfully"

The sink will run three parallel Pulsar workers.

Modifying parallelism post sink creation

To modify the parallelism factor of an existing sink, you can use pulsar-admin sinks update command and increase or reduce the factor as required:

Example change the parallelism factor of an existing sink:

bin/pulsar-admin sinks update --name dse-sink-kv --parallelism 1
"Updated successfully"

The sink will terminate all but a single Pulsar worker.
