16.16 Intel Confidential SQL Query Physical Execution Plan Two stages and with a shuffle(cross the data in network), the map stage contains file scan, projection and partial aggregation while the reduce stage do further aggregation by merging the partial aggregation results. Stage 1 (Map) File Scan Read data from source. Projection Expression evaluation c onsumes most CPU cycles. Partial Aggregation Aggregate per partition. S huffle Stage 2 (Reduce) Full Aggregation. Tiny task, c onsumes minor CPU cycles.

Every Engine Unit plays a single computation, different Engine Units are assembled together(configured by Spark) to perform a complex computation and works in the way of pipeline. A lot of pipelines(say N pipelines) can be constructed to perform N parallel computations, so that in a single FPGA cycle, N records can be digested. Data Flow Spark pumps Data from Data Source and converts them into the format as FPGA required, and then put them into InputBuffer Array. Then FPGA gets input data via DMA RX and feed them into Engine Pipelines. The results of Engine Pipelines are filled into OutBuffer Array via DMA TX. Finally Spark converts data back in the format of Spark SQL needed.
