-RE: How to set "hadoop.tmp.dir" if I have multiple disks per node?
hadoop.tmp.dir is not the exact configuration you are looking for spreading the disk I/O
This is the default base directory ( its single directory not multiple) used in case you didn’t configure your own directories for processes such as NameNode, DataNode and NodeManager.
Exact configurations where you need to configure comma separated values are as follows.
1. dfs.namenode.name.dir for namenode in hdfs-site.xml
2. dfs.datanode.data.dir for datanode in hdfs-site.xml
3. yarn.nodemanager.local-dirs for NodeManager in yarn-site.xml
Please note all above configurations are for Hadoop 2.x
Configure different subdirectories if you are using same disk for multiple processes.

In order to spread I/O among multiple disks, should I assign a comma-separated list of directories which are located on different disks to "hadoop.tmp.dir"？

hadoop.tmp.dir is a directory created on local file system
For example if you have set hadoop.tmp.dir property to /home/training/hadoop
This directory will be created when you format the namenode by running
hadoop namenode -format
When you open this folder
you will see two subfolders dfs and mapred.
the /home/training/hadoop/mapred folder will be on HDFS also
Hope this clears
