Is a pyarrow.array guaranteed to be zero-copy deserialized

How severe does this issue affect your experience of using Ray?

  • None: Just asking a question out of curiosity

I’m new to Ray currently going through the tutorials. Is a pyarrow.array deserialized with zero copies. From the docs, it seems this is only guaranteed for numpy arrays. Also, is there a way for checking if an object is deserialized with zero copies. Regards

@bnm3k Thanks posting this issue.

cc: @Chen_Shen @cade @vitsai Anyone know this answer whether pyarrow.array is guranteed to be zero-copy deserialized as numpy arrays are in Ray?
