You can make use of this configuration to do the same.

    <description>List of directories to store localized files in. An
      application's localized file directory will be found in:
      Individual containers' work directories, called container_${contid}, will
      be subdirectories of this.

Subject: temporary folders for YARN tasks

When a YARN app and its tasks wants to write temporary files, how does it know where to write
the files?
I am assuming that each task has some temporary space available, and I hope it is available
across multiple disk volumes for parallel performance.
Are those files cleaned up automatically after task exit?
If I want to give lifetime control of the files to an auxiliary service (along the lines of
MR shuffle passing files to the aux service), how would I do that, and would that entail different
file locations?
