SparkContext Error - File not found /tmp/spark-events does not exist

Running a Python Spark Application via API call -
On submitting the Application - response - Failed
SSH into the Worker

My python application exists in

/root/spark/work/driver-id/wordcount.py


Error can be found in

/root/spark/work/driver-id/stderr


Show the following error -

It indicates - /tmp/spark-events Does not exist - which is true
However, in wordcount.py

from pyspark import SparkContext, SparkConf

... few more lines ...

def main():
conf = SparkConf().setAppName("MyApp").setMaster("spark://ec2-54-209-108-127.compute-1.amazonaws.com:7077")
sc = SparkContext(conf=conf)
sc.stop()

if __name__ == "__main__":
main()

Answer

/tmp/spark-events is the location that Spark store the events logs. Just create this directory in the master machine and you're set.

$mkdir /tmp/spark-events
$ sudo /root/spark-ec2/copy-dir /tmp/spark-events/
RSYNC'ing /tmp/spark-events to slaves...
