merge vs MERGE INTO

New Contributor III

from 10.4 LTS version we have low shuffle merge, so merge is more faster. But what about MERGE INTO function that we run in sql notebook of databricks.

Is there any performance difference when we use databrciks pyspark ".merge" function vs databricks sql "MERGE INTO" function. And does both have "low shuffle merge"

Hi @Roshan RC​ ,

There is no difference between both as the internal physical plan will be the same for both of the codes.
