I was able to resolve the issue with increasing the timeout and reducing
the number of executors and increasing number of cores per executor.
The issue is resolved but I am still not sure why reducing the number of
executors and increasing number of cores per executor fixed issues related
to shuffle reads. I understand that now with more cores per executor the
executor threads are getting less memory but earlier too there were no GC
Can some one help me understand how this setting could help and what are
the things we should consider for selecting the right ratio of executors to
