>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Spark Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.4, 2.4.3
>         Environment: Ubuntu server, Spark 2.4.3 Scala with >64GB RAM per node, 32
cores (tried different configurations of executors)
>            Reporter: antonkulaga
>            Priority: Critical
> Spark is super-slow for all wide data (when there are >15kb columns and >15kb rows).
Most of the genomics/transcriptomic data is wide because number of genes is usually >20kb
and number of samples ass well. Very popular GTEX dataset is a good example ( see for instance
RNA-Seq data at where gct is
just a .tsv file with two comments in the beginning). Everything done in wide tables (even
simple "describe" functions applied to all the genes-columns) either takes hours or gets frozen
(because of lost executors) irrespective of memory and numbers of cores. While the same operations
work fast (minutes) and well with pure pandas (without any spark involved).
