Subject Re: memory size for caching RDD
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 06:57:22 GMT
Oh I see.

I want to implement something like this: sometimes I need to release some
memory for other usage even when they are occupied by some RDDs (can be
recomputed with the help of lineage when they are needed),  does spark
provide interfaces to force it to release some memory ?
