Subject Re: RDD.join vs spark SQL join
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2015 09:21:56 GMT
Both works the same way, but with SparkSQL you will get the optimization
etc done by the catalyst. One important thing to consider is the #
partitions and the key distribution (when you are doing RDD.join), If the
keys are not evenly distributed across machines then you can see the
process chocking on a single task (more like it takes hell lot of time for
one task to execute compared to others in that stage).

Best Regards
