Hi [~dimazhiyanov], could you confirm ^ please?

>                 Key: SPARK-6072
>                 URL:
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: SQL
>    Affects Versions: 1.2.1
>            Reporter: Dima Zhiyanov
> Currently joins such as 
> A join B on A.x = B.x AND A.y <=> B.y
> are evaluated as hash join on just x followed by filter on y. 
> This causes a skew problem (very long join) when a particular value of x has a high cardinality
even though (x, y) is evenly distributed
> Can we implement is as a hash join on (X, Option(Y))? This will eliminate the skew in
this case
> Imagine a join:
>  People as p1 join People as p2 on = and p1.address <=> p2.address
> (very small percentage of people has unknown address)
> This causes a skewed join on popular names such as "Mary Brown" if we hash on names alone,
but will not cause a skew if we hash on (Name, Option(Address))
