Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2219) du like command to count number of files under a given directory
Date Mon, 25 Feb 2008 22:47:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2219?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12572291#action_12572291
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-2219:
------------------------------------------

The UNIX way of doing that is to use find with a pipe to wc (amongst other ways).  But df
-i is probably the closest to a single command.

> To keep the total number of files on dfs low, we like the users to be able to easily
find out how many files each of their directory contain.   
> Currently, we only have fsck or dfs -lsr which takes time.
> Can I ask for an option for du to show the total number of files (as well as the total
size) of a given directory?
