    Hi @srowen
    The Spark SQL property/algo that binaryFiles partition calculation is now 
implementing is the property "spark.files.openCostInBytes" (in 
org.apache.spark.sql.internal.SQLConf) utilized in 
org.apache.spark.sql.execution.FileSourceScanExec inside method 
createNonBucketedReadRDD .
    As the original issue states that sc.binaryFiles is always creating an RDD 
with number of partitions as 2 (irrespective of number and size of files say 
for 1000 files or for even GB's of file , It will only create two partitions 
    To resolve , Reynold suggested that we can probably implement somthing like 
Spark SQL does i.e. to consider the cost of opening a file(more description in 
the JIRA issue) so that it doesn't create large number of partitions for small 
    Please let me know your suggestions on this, I have now verified that it's 
now creating an optimized number of partitions . Also, since both properties 
are used for their respective config's and for the SPARK CORE it's used just 
once for this issue , Can you please advise about if it would be okay to keep 
them or How would you like to proceed on this.
