Every spark application has same fixed heap size and fixed number of cores for a spark executor. The heap size is what referred to as the Spark executor memory which is controlled with the spark.executor.memory property of the –executor-memory flag. Every spark application will have one executor on each worker node. The executor memory is basically a measure on how much memory of the worker node will the application utilize
