Hadoop Trash Folder Size

What is the most efficient way to determine the size of Trash in a cluster periodically?  It seems like this is not available through the Hadoop metrics.

Re: Hadoop Trash Folder Size

You are right, I don't see this in hadoop metrics or in jmx stats in  the active namenode on my clusters either. 


here is a way to get what you are after in hdfs commands:


hdfs dfs -du /user/*/.Trash
