Sorry, a detailed description:
I wanna know how many files a datanode can hold, so there is only one datanode in my cluster.
When the datanode save 14million files, the cluster can't work, and the datanode has used
all of it's MEM(32G), the namenode's MEM is OK.

In my understanding, the max number of files stored in the HDFS should be <MEM of namenode>/sizeof(inode
struct).   This max number of HDFS files should be no smaller than max files a datanode can

Please feel free to correct me because I'm just beginning learning hadoop.
