Provide much more documentation on the process of debugging spark jobs

Intermediate to advanced users need more documentation on debugging spark jobs to identify where their code needs to be improved.

    Thank you so much for this recommendation. We've begun working on exposing our Spark Monitoring Console (Spark History Server) back in the product UI so users will be able to see an option from their notebooks to go to the Spark Monitoring Console (where successful, failed, and all the activity in your cluster).

    Hi Cecelia, the UI will be useful but documentation is more important at this stage. Without documentation, the spark history server just provides some pretty graphics.

    + documentation on performance tuning / best practices, e.g. Loading from dashdb using partition ranges

    This is 100% required and would save IBM support a lot of time and effort also.
