Date Thu, 02 Jun 2016 14:10:59 GMT
Xiaohe Lan created HDFS-10479:

             Summary: help of stat is confusing
                 Key: HDFS-10479
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-10479
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: hdfs
    Affects Versions: 2.7.2
            Reporter: Xiaohe Lan
            Priority: Trivial

%b is actually printing the size of a file in bytes, while in help it stats filesize in blocks.

hdfs dfs -help stat
-stat [format] <path> ... :
  Print statistics about the file/directory at <path>
  in the specified format. Format accepts filesize in
  blocks (%b), type (%F), group name of owner (%g),
  name (%n), block size (%o), replication (%r), user name
  of owner (%u), modification date (%y, %Y).
  %y shows UTC date as "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss" and
  %Y shows milliseconds since January 1, 1970 UTC.
  If the format is not specified, %y is used by default.
