Description

The Bytewax batch materialization engine provides an execution engine for batch materializing operations (materialize and materialize-incremental).

Guide

In order to use the Bytewax materialization engine, you will need a Kubernetes cluster running version 1.22.10 or greater.

Kubernetes Authentication

The Bytewax materialization engine loads authentication and cluster information from the kubeconfig file. By default, kubectl looks for a file named config in the $HOME/.kube directory. You can specify other kubeconfig files by setting the KUBECONFIG environment variable.

Resource Authentication

Bytewax jobs can be configured to access Kubernetes secrets as environment variables to access online and offline stores during job runs.
To configure secrets, first create them using kubectl:
kubectl create secret generic -n bytewax aws-credentials --from-literal=aws-access-key-id='<access key id>' --from-literal=aws-secret-access-key='<secret access key>'
Then configure them in the batch_engine section of feature_store.yaml:
batch_engine:
type: bytewax
namespace: bytewax
env:
- name: AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
valueFrom:
secretKeyRef:
name: aws-credentials
key: aws-access-key-id
- name: AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
valueFrom:
secretKeyRef:
name: aws-credentials
key: aws-secret-access-key

Configuration

The Bytewax materialization engine is configured through the The feature_store.yaml configuration file:
batch_engine:
type: bytewax
namespace: bytewax
image: bytewax/bytewax-feast:latest
The namespace configuration directive specifies which Kubernetes namespace jobs, services and configuration maps will be created in.

Building a custom Bytewax Docker image

The image configuration directive specifies which container image to use when running the materialization job. To create a custom image based on this container, run the following command:
DOCKER_BUILDKIT=1 docker build . -f ./sdk/python/feast/infra/materialization/contrib/bytewax/Dockerfile -t <image tag>
Once that image is built and pushed to a registry, it can be specified as a part of the batch engine configuration:
batch_engine:
type: bytewax
namespace: bytewax
image: <image tag>
