Subject Re: restart from last successful stage

If you are using the same RDDs in the both the attempts to run the job, the
previous stage outputs generated in the previous job will indeed be reused.
This applies to core though. For dataframes, depending on what you do, the
physical plan may get generated again leading to new RDDs which may cause
recomputing all the stages. Consider running the job by generating the RDD
from Dataframe and then using that.

Of course, you can use caching in both core and DataFrames, which will
solve all these concerns.
