PySpark – groupby with aggregation (count, sum, mean, min, max)

PySpark @ Freshers.in

pyspark.sql.DataFrame.groupBy

PySpark groupby functions groups the DataFrame using the specified columns to run aggregation ( count,sum,mean, min, max) on them. We can use groupby for single column and multiple column. There is no partial aggregation with group aggregate UDFs, i.e., a full shuffle is required. Also, all the data of a group will be loaded into memory, so the user should be aware of the potential Out of memory risk if data is skewed
and certain groups are too large to fit in memory.

Sample code

from pyspark.sql import SparkSession
spark = SparkSession.builder.appName("PySpark groupby @ Freshers.in ").getOrCreate()
emp_schema= ["name","id","age","gender","dept","state","salary","increment"]
emp_data = [("Sam",1010,30,"Male","IT","CT",125000,8.1),
("Peter",1020,32,"Male","HR","NY",90000,7.0),
("Tom",1030,34,"Male","IT","CT",85000,5.0),
