Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (SPARK-8682) Range Join for Spark SQL
Date Thu, 16 Jul 2015 22:31:04 GMT


Herman van Hovell edited comment on SPARK-8682 at 7/16/15 10:31 PM:

I have attached some performance testing code.

In this setup RangeJoin is 13-50 times faster than the Cartesian/Filter combination. However
the performance profile is a bit unexpected. The fewer records in the broadcasted, side the
faster it is. This is opposite to my expectations, because RangeJoin should have a bigger
advantage when the number of broadcasted rows are larger. I am looking into this.

> Currently Spark SQL uses a Broadcast Nested Loop join (or a filtered Cartesian Join)
when it has to execute the following range query:
> {noformat}
>        B.*
> FROM   tableA A
>        JOIN tableB B
>         ON A.start <= B.end
>          AND A.end > B.start
> {noformat}
> This is horribly inefficient. The performance of this query can be greatly improved,
when one of the tables can be broadcasted, by creating a range index. A range index is basically
a sorted map containing the rows of the smaller table, indexed by both the high and low keys.
using this structure the complexity of the query would go from O(N * M) to O(N * 2 * LOG(M)),
N = number of records in the larger table, M = number of records in the smaller (indexed)
> I have created a pull request for this. According to the [Spark SQL: Relational Data
Processing in Spark|] paper
similar work (page 11, section 7.2) has already been done by the ADAM project (cannot locate
the code though). 
> Any comments and/or feedback are greatly appreciated.
