Hi,
There seems to be a bug in the section of code that converts the RowMatrix
format back into indexedRowMatrix format.
For RowMatrix, I think the singular values and right singular vectors (not
the left singular vectors U) that computeSVD computes are correct when
using multiple executors/machines; Only the R (not the Q) in tallSkinnyQR
is correct when using multiple executors/machines. U and Q were being
stored in RowMatrix format. There is no index information about RowMatrix,
so it does not make sense for U and Q.
Others have run into this same problem (
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK8614)
I think the quick solution for this problem is copy and paste the multiply,
computeSVD, and tallSkinnyQR code from RowMatrix to IndexedRowMatrix and
make the corresponding changes although this would result in code
duplication.
I have fixed the problem by what I mentioned above. Now, multiply,
computeSVD, and tallSkinnyQR are giving the correct results for
indexedRowMatrix when using multiple executors or workers. Let me know if I
should do a pull request for this.
Best,
Huamin
