Subject [GitHub] spark pull request: [SPARK-14972] Improve performance of JSON sche...
Date Sat, 30 Apr 2016 07:07:55 GMT
Github user JoshRosen commented on the pull request:
    After a bit more time in a profiler, I was able to make this 2x faster than my previous
best time.
    To give a rough idea of the structure of my benchmark:
    I have a folder containing a bunch of gigantic JSON documents with huge, deeply-nested
schemas. Imagine the schema being the union of a huge number of smaller schemas, so it's pretty
big and sparse.
    My benchmark harness reads in the raw JSON, caches it, unions it together a bunch of times
to inflate the benchmark runtime (to avoid small constant factor noise), then coalesces it
to a single partition to avoid task-launch overheads (and so we measure single-core performance):
    val lines ="...").rdd
    val coalescedLines =  (lines ++ lines ++ lines ++ lines ++ lines).coalesce(1)
    for (i <- 1 to 10) {
      val startTime = System.currentTimeMillis
      println(s"Took ${System.currentTimeMillis - startTime}")
    Before (f5da592fc63b8d3bc09d49c196d6c5d98cd2a013), this took around 88 seconds.
    After (6bf5ee634ee7e509a88e64236f18e3c6e7a07aa2), this takes about **14.5 seconds**.
    Coupled with the changes in #12741, a change that led to a massive speedup in the `reduce`
/ `treeAggregate` step, this should be a huge speedup vs 1.6.x.
