Subject [jira] [Created] (SPARK-10808) LDA user guide: discuss running time of LDA

-----------------------------------------

             Summary: LDA user guide: discuss running time of LDA
                 Key: SPARK-10808
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SPARK-10808
             Project: Spark
          Issue Type: Documentation
          Components: Documentation, MLlib
            Reporter: Joseph K. Bradley
            Priority: Minor


Based on feedback like [SPARK-10791], we should discuss the computational and communication
complexity of LDA and its optimizers in the MLlib Programming Guide.  E.g.:
* Online LDA can be faster than EM.
* To make online LDA run faster, you can use a smaller miniBatchFraction.
* Communication
** For EM, communication on each iteration is on the order of # topics * (vocabSize + # docs).
** For online LDA, communication on each iteration is on the order of # topics * vocabSize.
* Decreasing vocabSize and # topics can speed things up.
