Sentry for Apache Spark

A Sentry Integration for Scala Spark.

This integration is in alpha and has an unstable API.

Supports Spark 2.x.x and above.

Interested in PySpark? Check out our PySpark integration.


Add the package as a library dependecy.

libraryDependencies += "io.sentry" %% "sentry-spark" % "0.0.1-alpha04"

Make sure to configure the Sentry SDK.

We recommend using a file and place it in <SPARK_HOME>/conf, or anywhere in the Spark Driver's classpath.

When using cluster mode, we recommend the --files spark-submit option.

In order to use the integration, you will need to make the jar accesible to your Spark Driver.

./bin/spark-submit \
    --jars "sentry-spark_2.11-0.0.1-alpha04.jar" \
    --files "" \


Basic Usage

The sentry-spark integration will automatically add tags and other metadata to your Sentry events. You can set it up like this:

import io.sentry.Sentry
import io.sentry.spark.SentrySpark;



val spark = SparkSession
    .appName("Simple Application")


SentrySpark.applyContext can take a SparkSession, SparkContext or StreamingContext.


The sentry-spark integration exposes custom listeners that allow you to report events and errors to Sentry.

Supply the listeners as configuration properties so that they get instantiated as soon as possible.

SentrySparkListener [Spark Core]

The SentrySparkListener hooks onto the spark scheduler and adds breadcrumbs, tags and reports errors accordingly.

// Using SparkSession
val spark = SparkSession
    .appName("Simple Application")
    .config("spark.extraListeners", "io.sentry.spark.listener.SentrySparkListener")

// Using SparkContext
val conf = new SparkConf()
    .setAppName("Simple Application")
    .config("spark.extraListeners", "io.sentry.spark.listener.SentrySparkListener")
val sc  = new SparkContext(conf)

SentryQueryExecutionListener [Spark SQL]

The SentryQueryExecutionListener listens for query events and reports failures as Sentry errors.

The configuration option spark.sql.queryExecutionListeners is only supported for Spark 2.3 and above.

val spark = SparkSession
    .appName("Simple Spark SQL application")
    .config("spark.sql.queryExecutionListeners", "io.sentry.spark.listener.SentryQueryExecutionListener")

SentryStreamingQueryListener [Spark SQL]

The SentryStreamingQueryListener listens for streaming queries and reports failures as Sentry errors.

val spark = SparkSession
    .appName("Simple SQL Streaming Application")
    .config("spark.sql.streaming.streamingQueryListeners", "io.sentry.spark.listener.SentryQueryExecutionListener")

SentryStreamingListener [Spark Streaming]

The SentryStreamingListener listens for ongoing streaming computations and adds breadcrumbs, tags and reports errors accordingly.

import io.sentry.spark.listener.SentryStreamingListener;

val conf = new SparkConf().setMaster("local[2]").setAppName("NetworkWordCount")
val ssc = new StreamingContext(conf, Seconds(1))

ssc.addStreamingListener(new SentryStreamingListener);
