> Solution to 2816 changed
> - Total Capacity definition from (the disk space of all data directories) to (the disk
space of all the data directories - the reserved space)
> - We added a new element Present Capacity to the report. It is set to (Used Capacity
+ Remaining Capacity)
> - We changed the Used Percentage reported from (Used Capacity)/(Total Capacity) to (Used
Capacity)/(Present Capacity)
> - All these changes are displayed on Namenode Web UI.
> Balancer functionality
> Balancer script is started with a threshold parameter. It tries to move the blocks from
the nodes that have Used % that is more than (Cluster average + threshold) to the nodes that
have less than (Cluster average - threshold). Essentially balancer gets all the datanodes
used % to with in (the Cluster average +/- threshold).
> Inconsistencies due to the change in 2816
> When MapReduce jobs are run, temporary files are generated. This eats away a lot of space
from Present Capacity. The difference between the Total Capacity and the Present Capacity
can be huge. Currently balancer computes Used Percentage based (Used Capacity)/(Total Capacity).
The Used % the balancer uses could be significantly different from Used % displayed on the
Namenode Web UI. When balancer is done balancing, the Namenode Used % might still appear unbalanced.
