Subject Broadcast Variable Life Cycle
Date Sun, 21 Aug 2016 17:07:53 GMT
Hello spark developers,

Can someone explain to me what is the lifecycle of a broadcast variable?
When a broadcast variable will be garbage-collected at the driver-side and
at the executor-side? Does a spark application need to actively manage the
broadcast variables to ensure that it will not run in OOM?

Best Regards,
