sniff_s3(name, bucket, keys, region, num_lines_sniffed=1000, sep=',', skip=0, colnames=None, conn=None)¶
Sniffs a list of CSV files located in an S3 bucket.
name (str): Name of the table in which the data is to be inserted.
- bucket (str):
The bucket from which to read the files.
keys (List[str]): The list of keys (files in the bucket) to be read.
- region (str):
The region in which the bucket is located.
- num_lines_sniffed (int, optional):
Number of lines analysed by the sniffer.
- sep (str, optional):
The character used for separating fields.
- skip (int, optional):
Number of lines to skip at the beginning of each file.
- colnames(List[str] or None, optional): The first line of a CSV file
usually contains the column names. When this is not the case, you need to explicitly pass them.
- conn (
Connection, optional): The database connection to be used.
If you don’t explicitly pass a connection, the engine will use the default connection.
str: Appropriate CREATE TABLE statement.
Let’s assume you have two CSV files - file1.csv and file2.csv - in the bucket. You can import their data into the getML engine using the following commands:
>>> getml.engine.set_s3_access_key_id("YOUR-ACCESS-KEY-ID") >>> >>> getml.engine.set_s3_secret_access_key("YOUR-SECRET-ACCESS-KEY") >>> >>> stmt = data.database.sniff_s3( ... bucket="your-bucket-name", ... keys=["file1.csv", "file2.csv"], ... region="us-east-2", ... name="MY_TABLE", ... sep=';' ... )
You can also set the access credential as environment variables before you launch the getML engine.
