Each partition should be translated into one task which should run in one executor. But one executor can process more than one task. I may be wrong, and will be grateful if someone can correct me.

Hello list!

I am trying to familiarize with Apache Spark. I  would like to ask something about partitioning and executors.

Can I have e.g: 500 partitions but launch only one executor that will run operations in only 1 partition of the 500? And then I would like my job to die.

Is there any easy way? Or i have to modify code to achieve that?

Thank you,
 Thodoris
