> Currently the parquet file generation is time consuming, most of time used for serialize
and compress. It cost about 10mins to generate a 100MB~ parquet file in our scenario. We want
to improve write performance without generate too many small files, which will impact read
> We propose to:
> 1. generate several small parquet files concurrently
> 2. merge small files to one file: concat the parquet blocks in binary (without SerDe),
merge footers and modify the path and offset metadata.
> We create ParquetFilesConcat class to finish step 2. It can be invoked by
If this function approved by parquet community, we will integrate it in spark.
> It will impact compression and introduced more dictionary pages, but it can be improved
by adjusting the concurrency of step 1.
