Subject Re: Reading files on a cluster / shared file system
Date Thu, 16 Jan 2014 00:54:15 GMT
If you are running a distributed Spark cluster over the nodes, then the
reading should be done in a distributed manner. If you give sc.textFile() a
"local path" to a directory in the shared file system, then each worker
should read a subset of the files in directory by accessing them locally.
Nothing should be read on the master.
