Subject RE: Can add a regular check in DataNode on free disk space?
Date Mon, 20 Oct 2014 06:28:09 GMT
Formatting NameNode will cause data loss – in effect you will lose all your data on DataNodes(rather
access to data on DataNodes). NameNode will have no idea where your data(files) are stored.
I don’t think that’s what you’re looking for.
I am wondering why isn’t there any log information on DataNode for disk full. What version
of Hadoop are you using and what’s your configuration( Single Node, Single Node Pseudo Distributed
or Cluster)

Hi unmesha,
Thanks for your response, but I am not clear what effect will the hadoop cluster has after
applying above operations. Could you pls give more explanations?

1. Stop all Hadoop daemons
2. Remove all files from
3. Format namenode
4. Start all Hadoop daemons.

Hi Experts and Developers,
At present, if a DataNode does not has free disk space, we can not get this bad situation
from anywhere, including DataNode log. At the same time, under this situation, the hdfs writing
operation will fail and return error msg as below. However, from the error msg, user could
not know the root cause is that the only datanode runs out of disk space, and he also could
not get any useful hint in datanode log. So I believe it will be better if we could add a
regular check in DataNode on free disk space, and it will add WARNING or ERROR msg in datanode
log if that datanode runs out of space. What's your opinion?

Error Msg:
org.apache.hadoop.ipc.RemoteException(java.io.IOException): File /user/hadoop/PiEstimator_TMP_3_141592654/in/part0
could only be replicated to 0 nodes instead of minReplication (=1).  There are 1 datanode(s)
running and no node(s) are excluded in this operation.
