  1. Read Making Sense of Performance in Data Analytics Frameworks, by Kay Ousterhout, Ryan Rasti, Sylvia Ratnasamy, Scott Shenker, and Byung-Gon Chun. Write a short review and summary of the paper (between a half and a full page, using a reasonable font size). What do you think of their conclusions? Do you think thier results can be extrapolated to other workloads? What about other analytics frameworks?
