dfs storage(dfs.data.dir) space issue

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

My Cluster has 3 nodes which occupies almost 870 GB. 

 

[hdfs@XXXX bin]$ hadoop fs -du -s -h /user/hdfs
435.3 G 870.7 G /user/hdfs

 

However the space held by dfs.data.dir directory on single node is more than total space occupied by the cluster.

 

 

[hdfs@XXXX bigdata]$ du -sh dfs
464G dfs

[hdfs@YYYY bin]$ du -sh /bigdata/dfs
746G /bigdata/dfs

[hdfs@ZZZZ ~]$ du -sh /bigdata/dfs
257G /bigdata/dfs

Isn't hdfs files are stored on dfs.data.dir directory so how the space occupied is more than that of cluster?

 

Please help me reduce the space of dfs directory as it is in critical state.

 

[hdfs@XXXX finalized]$ ls -lart
total 2008
drwxr-xr-x 244 hdfs hdfs 12288 Mar  7  2017 subdir0

[hdfs@XXXX finalized]$ pwd /bigdata/dfs/dn/current/BP-939287337-10.0.0.4-1484085163925/current/finalized [hdfs@XXXX finalized]$ These subdir have more subdirs under it and finally blocks. Can I delete the older ones?

Thanks,

Shilpa
