Hi Michael, the two Spark configuration files aren't very exciting

spark-env.sh
Same as the template apart from a JAVA_HOME setting

spark-defaults.conf
spark.io.compression.codec lzf

config.py has the Spark home set, is running Spark standalone mode, we run 
and prep Spark tests only, driver 8g, executor memory 16g, Kryo, 0.66 
memory fraction, 100 trials

We can post the 1.6.2 comparison early next week, running lots of 
iterations over the weekend once we get the dedicated time again

Cheers,

Hi Adam,

Do you have your spark confs and your spark-env.sh somewhere where we can 
see them? If not, can you make them available?

Cheers,

Michael

Hi, we've been testing the performance of Spark 2.0 compared to previous 
releases, unfortunately there are no Spark 2.0 compatible versions of 
HiBench and SparkPerf apart from those I'm working on (see 
https://github.com/databricks/spark-perf/issues/108) 

With the Spark 2.0 version of SparkPerf we've noticed a 30% geomean 
regression with a very small scale factor and so we've generated a couple 
of profiles comparing 1.5.2 vs 2.0.0. Same JDK version and same platform. 
We will gather a 1.6.2 comparison and increase the scale factor. 

Has anybody noticed a similar problem? My changes for SparkPerf and Spark 
2.0 are very limited and AFAIK don't interfere with Spark core 
functionality, so any feedback on the changes would be much appreciated 
and welcome, I'd much prefer it if my changes are the problem. 

A summary for your convenience follows (this matches what I've mentioned 
on the SparkPerf issue above) 

1. spark-perf/config/config.py : SCALE_FACTOR=0.05
No. Of Workers: 1
Executor per Worker : 1
Executor Memory: 18G
Driver Memory : 8G
Serializer: kryo 

2. $SPARK_HOME/conf/spark-defaults.conf: executor Java Options: 
-Xdisableexplicitgc -Xcompressedrefs 

Main changes I made for the benchmark itself 
Use Scala 2.11.8 and Spark 2.0.0 RC2 on our local filesystem 
MLAlgorithmTests use Vectors.fromML 
For streaming-tests in HdfsRecoveryTest we use wordStream.foreachRDD not 
wordStream.foreach 
KVDataTest uses awaitTerminationOrTimeout in a SparkStreamingContext 
instead of awaitTermination 
Trivial: we use compact not compact.render for outputting json

In Spark 2.0 the top five methods where we spend our time is as follows, 
the percentage is how much of the overall processing time was spent in 
this particular method: 
1.        AppendOnlyMap.changeValue 44% 
2.        SortShuffleWriter.write 19% 
3.        SizeTracker.estimateSize 7.5% 
4.        SizeEstimator.estimate 5.36% 
5.        Range.foreach 3.6% 

and in 1.5.2 the top five methods are: 
1.        AppendOnlyMap.changeValue 38% 
2.        ExternalSorter.insertAll 33% 
3.        Range.foreach 4% 
4.        SizeEstimator.estimate 2% 
5.        SizeEstimator.visitSingleObject 2% 

I see the following scores, on the left I have the test name followed by 
the 1.5.2 time and then the 2.0.0 time
scheduling throughput: 5.2s vs 7.08s
agg by key; 0.72s vs 1.01s
agg by key int: 0.93s vs 1.19s
agg by key naive: 1.88s vs 2.02
sort by key: 0.64s vs 0.8s
sort by key int: 0.59s vs 0.64s
scala count: 0.09s vs 0.08s
scala count w fltr: 0.31s vs 0.47s 

This is only running the Spark core tests (scheduling throughput through 
scala-count-w-filtr, including all inbetween).
