You can pass your own "log4j.properties" path to log messages and pass it to your spark shell command.

Example:

# spark-shell --master yarn --deploy-mode client --files /your/path/to/log4j.properties --conf "spark.executor.extraJavaOptions='-Dlog4j.configuration=log4j.properties'" --driver-java-options "-Dlog4j.configuration=file:/your/path/to/log4j.properties"

For example if you create a "/tmp/log4j.properties" like following:

# cat /tmp/log4j.properties 
log4j.rootCategory=debug,console
log4j.logger.com.demo.package=debug,console
log4j.additivity.com.demo.package=false
log4j.appender.console=org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender
log4j.appender.console.target=System.out
log4j.appender.console.immediateFlush=true
log4j.appender.console.encoding=UTF-8
log4j.appender.console.layout=org.apache.log4j.PatternLayout
log4j.appender.console.layout.conversionPattern=%d [%t] %-5p %c - %m%n

.

Then run the spark-shell as following then you should see DEBUG messages.

# su - spark
#  spark-shell --master yarn --deploy-mode client --files /tmp/log4j.properties --conf "spark.executor.extraJavaOptions='-Dlog4j.configuration=log4j.properties'" --driver-java-options "-Dlog4j.configuration=file:/tmp/log4j.properties"
Multiple versions of Spark are installed but SPARK_MAJOR_VERSION is not set
Spark1 will be picked by default

@Saurabh

In case of Spark2 you can enable the DEBUG logging as by invoking the "sc.setLogLevel("DEBUG")" as following:

$ export SPARK_MAJOR_VERSION=2
$ spark-shell --master yarn --deploy-mode client

SPARK_MAJOR_VERSION is set to 2, using Spark2
Setting default log level to "WARN".
To adjust logging level use sc.setLogLevel(newLevel). For SparkR, use setLogLevel(newLevel).

Spark context available as 'sc' (master = yarn, app id = application_1536125228953_0007).

Thanks a lot @Jay Kumar SenSharma. It ran in debug mode.
