Apple leverages Apache Spark for processing large datasets to power key components of Apple’s production services. The majority of users rely on Spark SQL to benefit from state-of-the-art optimizations in Catalyst and Tungsten. As there are multiple APIs to interact with Spark SQL, users have to make a wise decision which one to pick. While DataFrames and SQL are widely used, they lack type safety so that the analysis errors will not be detected during the compile time such as invalid column names or types. Also, the ability to apply the same functional constructions as on RDDs is missing in DataFrames. Datasets expose a type-safe API and support for user-defined closures at the cost of performance. This talk will explain cases when Spark SQL cannot optimize typed Datasets as much as it can optimize DataFrames. We will also present an effort to use bytecode analysis to convert user-defined closures into native Catalyst expressions. This helps Spark to avoid the expensive conversion between the internal format and JVM objects as well as to leverage more Catalyst optimizations. A consequence, we can bridge the gap in performance between Datasets and DataFrames, so that users do not have to sacrifice the benefits of Datasets for performance reasons.
