RDD.aggregate(zeroValue: U, seqOp: Callable[[U, T], U], combOp: Callable[[U, U], U]) → U[source]

Aggregate the elements of each partition, and then the results for all the partitions, using a given combine functions and a neutral “zero value.”

The functions op(t1, t2) is allowed to modify t1 and return it as its result value to avoid object allocation; however, it should not modify t2.

The first function (seqOp) can return a different result type, U, than the type of this RDD. Thus, we need one operation for merging a T into an U and one operation for merging two U

New in version 1.1.0.


the initial value for the accumulated result of each partition


a function used to accumulate results within a partition


an associative function used to combine results from different partitions


the aggregated result


>>> seqOp = (lambda x, y: (x[0] + y, x[1] + 1))
>>> combOp = (lambda x, y: (x[0] + y[0], x[1] + y[1]))
>>> sc.parallelize([1, 2, 3, 4]).aggregate((0, 0), seqOp, combOp)
(10, 4)
>>> sc.parallelize([]).aggregate((0, 0), seqOp, combOp)
(0, 0)
