Interface SupportsRuntimeV2Filtering

@Experimental public interface SupportsRuntimeV2Filtering extends Scan
A mix-in interface for Scan. Data sources can implement this interface if they can filter initially planned InputPartitions using predicates Spark infers at runtime. This interface is very similar to SupportsRuntimeFiltering except it uses data source V2 Predicate instead of data source V1 Filter. SupportsRuntimeV2Filtering is preferred over SupportsRuntimeFiltering and only one of them should be implemented by the data sources.

Note that Spark will push runtime filters only if they are beneficial.

  • Method Details

    • filterAttributes

      NamedReference[] filterAttributes()
      Returns attributes this scan can be filtered by at runtime.

      Spark will call filter(Predicate[]) if it can derive a runtime predicate for any of the filter attributes.

    • filter

      void filter(Predicate[] predicates)
      Filters this scan using runtime predicates.

      The provided expressions must be interpreted as a set of predicates that are ANDed together. Implementations may use the predicates to prune initially planned InputPartitions.

      If the scan also implements SupportsReportPartitioning, it must preserve the originally reported partitioning during runtime filtering. While applying runtime predicates, the scan may detect that some InputPartitions have no matching data. It can omit such partitions entirely only if it does not report a specific partitioning. Otherwise, the scan can replace the initially planned InputPartitions that have no matching data with empty InputPartitions but must preserve the overall number of partitions.

      Note that Spark will call Scan.toBatch() again after filtering the scan at runtime.
