Subject Size of Directory in HDFS
Date Wed, 20 Oct 2010 20:17:20 GMT
I am trying to see how what the total size of all the files within a
directory  in HDFS is. I try

Configuration conf = new Configuration();

            Path inFile = new Path(

            FileSystem fs = inFile.getFileSystem(conf);

            FileStatus status = fs.getFileStatus(inFile);


But since it's a directory, i get a 0. Anyone have any idea on how I can get
this info? I am using apache hadoop 20.2.

Secondly, I assume FileSystem.getUsed and FileStatus.getLen is in bytes,
