Subject Re: org.apache.spark.shuffle.FetchFailedException: Too large frame:

This is usually caused by skew. Sometimes you can work around it by in
creasing the number of partitions like you tried, but when that doesn’t
work you need to change the partitioning that you’re using.

If you’re aggregating, try adding an intermediate aggregation. For example,
if your query is select sum(x), a from t group by a, then try select
sum(partial), a from (select sum(x) as partial, a, b from t group by a, b)
group by a.
