Subject Used Heap in Namenode & dfs.replication
Date Thu, 11 Oct 2012 18:33:23 GMT
Hi Hadoopers,

I am looking at DFS' cluster summary.

"14708427 files and directories, 16357951 blocks = 31066378 total"

>From White's book (2nd Edition) page 42. "As a rule of thumb, each
file, directory, and block takes about 150bytes".

So, 31066378 * 150 byte => 4.34 GB

The rest of the line is  Heap Size is 12.17 GB / 34.72 GB

12.17 vs. 4.34 is like 3 time bigger number. is that because of
replication of 3 ?

Thanks
Patai

I am on 0.20.2
