Subject Re: storage.MemoryStore estimated size 7 times larger than real
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2014 03:00:09 GMT
It's likely the Ints are getting boxed at some point along the journey
(perhaps starting with parallelize()). I could definitely see boxed Ints
being 7 times larger than primitive ones.

If you wanted to be very careful, you could try making an RDD[Array[Int]],
where each element is simply a subset of your original array, and
specifying one partition per element, effectively manually partitioning
your data. I suspect you'd see the 7x overhead disappear.
