Yeah, installing HDFS in our environment is unfornutately going to take lot of time (approvals/planning etc). I will have to live with local FS for now. The other option I had already tried is collect() and send everything to driver node. But my data volume is too huge for driver node to handle alone.
I’m now trying to split the data into multiple datasets, then collect individual dataset and write it to local FS on driver node (this approach slows down the spark job, but I hope it works).

Spark is geared towards writing to a distributed file system. I would suggest trying to collect() so the data is sent to the master and then do a write if the result set isn't too big, or repartition before trying to write (though I suspect this won't really help). You really should install HDFS if that is possible.

I’m writing the file like this --> myDataFrame.write.mode("overwrite").csv("myFilePath") There absolutely are no errors/warnings after the write. _SUCCESS file is created on master node, but the problem of _temporary is noticed only on worked nodes. I know spark.write.csv works best with HDFS, but with the current setup I have in my environment, I have to deal with spark write to node’s local file system and not to HDFS.

I suspect that the writes are not properly completed. How are you specifying the write ? Any error messages in the logs ?

I’m spark.write.csv to write CSV files. On master node: spark.write.csv creates a folder with csv file name and writes many files with part-r-000n suffix. This is okay for me, I can merge them later. But on worker nodes: spark.write.csv creates a folder with csv file name and writes many folders and files under _temporary/0/. This is not okay for me. Could someone please suggest me what could have been going wrong in my settings/how to be able to write csv files to the specified folder, and not to subfolders (_temporary/0/task_xxx) in worker machines.
