Hi [~szehon], thanks for the excellent writeup. I'm wondering if you can convert the MS doc
to pdf and attach it here. Somehow, the open office has problem displaying the charts in the
doc. Thanks.

> SMB joins are used wherever the tables are sorted and bucketed. It's a reduce-side join.
The join boils down to just merging the already sorted tables, allowing this operation to
be faster than an ordinary map-join. However, if the tables are partitioned, there could be
a slow down as each mapper would need to get a very small chunk of a partition which has a
single key. Thus, in some scenarios it's beneficial to convert SMB join to SMB map join as
> The task is to research and support the conversion from regular SMB join to SMB map join
for Spark execution engine.
