Subject [jira] [Created] (SPARK-19553) Add GroupedData.countApprox()
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2017 19:37:41 GMT
Nicholas Chammas created SPARK-19553:

             Summary: Add GroupedData.countApprox()
                 Key: SPARK-19553
             Project: Spark
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: SQL
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
            Reporter: Nicholas Chammas
            Priority: Minor

We already have a [{{pyspark.sql.functions.approx_count_distinct()}}|]
that can be applied to grouped data, but it seems odd that you can't just get regular approximate
count for grouped data.

I imagine the API would mirror that for [{{RDD.countApprox()}}|],
but I'm not sure:

    .countApprox(timeout=300, confidence=0.95)

Or, if we want to mirror the {{approx_count_distinct()}} function, we can do that too. I'd
want to understand why that function doesn't take a timeout or confidence parameter, though.
Also, what does {{rsd}} mean? It's not documented.
