Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-2845) dfsadmin disk utilization report on Solaris is wrong
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2008 22:03:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2845?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12571610#action_12571610

Martin Traverso commented on HADOOP-2845:
-----------------------------------------

> 1. Do you really need to wait(5000). Would it help if we flush() and then sync() rather
than just sync()?

Doesn't work on Solaris w/ ZFS. Du doesn't see the size increase until after a few seconds
have elapsed, hence the wait. I know it's not ideal, but it's the best I could come up with
that would work. Even a 3s wait causes the test to fail, for example.

> 2. du -sk for a 1-byte file prints out 0 for nfs mounted on my linux box. So you will
be getting 0-size blocks in this case.

Do you get that consistently? Or does it show > 0 after a while? Are you mounting NFS with
attribute caching, and if so, what is the timeout?

> dfsadmin reports 2x disk utilization on some platforms (Solaris, MacOS). The reason for
this is that org.apache.hadoop.fs.DU is relying on du's default block size when reporting
sizes and assuming they are 1024 byte blocks. This works fine on Linux, but du Solaris and
MacOS uses 512-byte blocks to report disk usage.
> DU should use "du -sk" instead of "du -s" to force the command to report sizes based
on 1024 byte blocks.
