Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-6093) Expose more caching information for debugging by users
Date Fri, 14 Mar 2014 22:46:44 GMT

Arpit Agarwal commented on HDFS-6093:

Hi Andrew,

I just tried this out your patch and I think there is some mismatch between the output of
{{dfsAdmin -report}} and {{cacheadmin -listPools}}.

This is with a single NN/single DN pseudocluster on Centos 6.5.

I ran the following commands:
- bin/hdfs cacheadmin -addPool pool1 -limit 1073741824
- bin/hdfs cacheadmin -addDirective -path /f1 -pool pool1

This says FILES_CACHED is zero.
$ bin/hdfs cacheadmin -listPools -stats
Found 1 result.
pool1  aagarwal  aagarwal  rwxr-xr-x   1073741824   never       1048576             0    
           0             1             0

However this says "cache used" is 1MB. 
aagarwal@arrow ~/deploy2/hadoop-3.0.0-SNAPSHOT$ bin/hdfs dfsadmin -report
Configured Capacity: 49202208768 (45.82 GB)
Present Capacity: 39676268544 (36.95 GB)
DFS Remaining: 39675179008 (36.95 GB)
DFS Used: 1089536 (1.04 MB)
DFS Used%: 0.00%

Configured Cache Capacity: 268435456 (256 MB)
Present Cache Capacity: 268435456 (256 MB)
Cache Remaining: 267386880 (255 MB)
Cache Used: 1048576 (1 MB)
Cache Used%: 0.39%

I did not see any error messages related to caching in the DN/NN logs.

> When users submit a new cache directive, it's unclear if the NN has recognized it and
is actively trying to cache it, or if it's hung for some other reason. It'd be nice to expose
a "pending caching/uncaching" count the same way we expose pending replication work.
> It'd also be nice to display the aggregate cache capacity and usage in dfsadmin -report,
since we already have have it as a metric and expose it per-DN in report output.
