Subject [jira] [Commented] (SPARK-32760) Support for INET data type
Date Wed, 02 Sep 2020 01:29:00 GMT


Hyukjin Kwon commented on SPARK-32760:

The problem is that you should implement the serde for Python and R sides as well to make
it properly supported. This is a huge work. Let's don't do this unless there's a very strong
reason and very wide needs from the community.

>                 Key: SPARK-32760
>                 URL:
>             Project: Spark
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: Spark Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.4.0, 3.0.0, 3.1.0
>            Reporter: Ruslan Dautkhanov
>            Priority: Major
> PostgreSQL has support for `INET` data type 
> []
> We have a few customers that are interested in similar, native support for IP addresses,
just like in PostgreSQL.
> The issue with storing IP addresses as strings, is that most of the matches (like if
an IP address belong to a subnet) in most cases can't take leverage of parquet bloom filters.
