How do i stop pyspark from outputting text

I am using a tqdm progress bar to monitor the amount of data records I have collected via API. I am temporarily writing them to a file in the DBFS, then uploading to a Spark DataFrame. Each time I write to a file, I get a message like 'Wrote 8873925 bytes.' How do I stop it from outputting this?

Hi @halox6000, To stop the progress bar output from tqdm, you can use the disable argument. Set it to True to silence any tqdm output. In fact, it will not only hide the display but also skip the progress bar calculations entirely1. Here’s an example of how to use it:

from tqdm import tqdm
import time

for i in tqdm(range(10), disable=True):
    time.sleep(1)

In this example, the progress bar won’t be displayed, and the output messages will be suppressed. You can adapt this approach to your specific use case in Databricks to prevent the “Wrote X bytes” messages from cluttering your logs. If you need to dynamically switch the behavior, consider adding a command-line argument to your scri...1.

Happy coding! 😊
