Improving Memory Utilization of Spark Jobs Using Alluxio

Alluxio Community Office Hour *

This office hour shares a demo and compares two approaches, caching data directly in-memory into the Spark JVM versus storing data off-heap via an in-memory storage service like Alluxio

Improving Spark Memory Resource with Off-Heap In-Memory Storage

In the previous tutorial ”Getting Started with Spark Caching using Alluxio in 5 Minutes”, we demonstrated how to get started with Spark and Alluxio. To share more thoughts and experiments on how Alluxio enhances Spark workloads, this article focuses on how Alluxio helps to optimize the memory utilization of Spark applications.  For users who are … Continued
