Subject [jira] [Resolved] (SPARK-3626) Replace AsyncRDDActions with a more general async. API
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2014 02:19:34 GMT


Josh Rosen resolved SPARK-3626.
    Resolution: Won't Fix

I'm closing this as "Won't Fix" for now.  The more general API (as described in my PR) has
some confusing semantics RE: cancellation and may be more general than what most users want
/ need.

> The experimental AsyncRDDActions APIs seem to only exist in order to enable job cancellation.
> We've been considering extending these APIs to support progress monitoring, but this
would require stabilizing them so they're no longer {{@Experimental}}.
> Instead, I propose to replace all of the AsyncRDDActions with a mechanism based on job
groups which allows arbitrary computations to be run in job groups and supports cancellation
/ monitoring of Spark jobs launched from those computations.
> (full design pending; see my GitHub PR for more details).
