Subject [GitHub] spark pull request: [SPARK-3376] Add experimental (non-production)...
Date Sat, 13 Jun 2015 16:58:26 GMT
Github user kayousterhout commented on the pull request:
    @pwendell I've seen performance gains even when the data fits in the buffer cache on the
write side, because opening a file still requires writing metadata to disk, which can become
a point of contention when many tasks are opening many files at the same time.  I've also
heard from a few folks who have configurations with a lot of memory (and not much disk space
/ no local disks) who would find this useful.  That being said, there are other compelling
reasons to close this -- which I've summarized in the PR description.
