Subject About formatting of namenode..
Date Fri, 31 Jan 2014 10:40:10 GMT
Hi folks..

I have some doubt while thinking of formatting of namenode..
Actually i am doing my project in Apache Giraph which makes use of hadoop
environment to run the job..

While running various job,i noticed that

/app/hadoop/tmp/dfs/name/data
   directory is almost full..

Should i format my namenode??  Will it create any problem??
I know if i format ,i will lose all my data residing in hdfs.
Before formatting it,i will take backup of all the input files used to run
giraph job..

Seeking your suggestions..
Thanks
