PySpark - Closure

Card Puncher Data Processing


Spark automatically creates closures:

One closure is send per worker for every task.

closures are one way from the driver to the worker.

worker gets code passed via a closure.

When you perform transformations and actions that use functions, Spark will automatically push a closure containing that function to the workers so that it can run at the workers.

Spark - Broadcast variables

Broadcast variables are an efficient way of sending data once that would otherwise be sent multiple times automatically in closures. Enable to efficiently send large read-only values to all of the workers....

Spark - Executor (formerly Worker)

When running on a cluster, each Spark application gets an independent set of executor JVMs that only run tasks and store data for that application. Worker or Executor are processes that run computations...
