Subject Re: Prevent job/operator from spilling to disk
Date Wed, 04 May 2016 16:19:01 GMT
Hi Max,

it is not possible to deactivate spilling to disk at the moment.
It might be possible to implement, but this would require a few more
changes to make it feasible.
For instance, we would need to add more fine-grained control about how
memory is distributed among operators.
This is currently statically decided by the optimizer and there is no
parameter to influence it.

Cheers, Fabian
