This filename is coming from here: http://hadoop.apache.org/mapreduce/docs/r0.21.0/api/constant-values.html
In general for hadoop you may want to avoid looking at any "_*" file since those are Hadoop related files like (_temporary, _log,…)

Subject: Re: _SUCCESS files appearing in demuxOutput
I have not seen this. What is the version of hadoop that you are using, are you using 0.21? It looks like the _SUCCESS file is spill out after demux mapreduce job. There are two possibilities leading to the creation of this file. Demux is modified and it is doing something that is unexpected, or the mapreduce framework 0.21 put that file there.
If you are using 0.21, I would recommend to avoid it.
A more stable version of Hadoop is 0.20.100 branch, and you can download it from:
