"Configured Capacity" shows less size than the original disk capacity as per dfsadmin command

[ Edited ]

I have implemented 2 node cluster using Cloudera Manager 5.4.1 in VMWare workstation and this includes components like Hbase, Impala, Hive, Sqoop2, Oozie, Zookeeper, NameNode, SecondaryName and YARN.

I have simulated 3 disk drives per node which includes sda for OS , sdb & sdc for Hadoop storage.

 

 As I had allocated sdb1 having 16GB and sdc1 having 16GB  dedicated for Hadoop storage on each of the nodes. Hence I assume that my total capacity for HDFS storage including both nodes should be 64GB. But when checked the output using dfsadmin command and also using NameNode UI, I see that the "Configured Capacity is lesser than my original disk size allocated for HDFS".

I have shown the output of dfsadmin command below and also output of df -h is shown. Kindly help me understand why the Configured capacity is showing lesser than my original disk size ?

 

[hduser@node1 ~]$ df -h

Re: "Configured Capacity" shows less size than the original disk capacity as per dfsadmin

As per your df -h output, the sdb2 and sdc2 has size of 8GB each not 16G:

 

/dev/sdb2                      8.1G  147M  7.9G   2% /disks/disk1/nonhdfsstorage
/dev/sdc2                      8.1G  147M  7.9G   2% /disks/disk2/nonhdfsstorage

Re: "Configured Capacity" shows less size than the original disk capacity as per dfsadmin

Hi Vina,

 

As you can see from the output, sdb2 and sdc2 are allocated for nonhdfsstorgae (ex: intermediate data). sdb1 and sdc1 are the partition drives which are mounted for hdfs storage and they are of 16GB each as you can see in "df -h" output.

[hduser@node1 ~]$ df -h
Filesystem                     Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdb1                       16G  283M   15G   2% /disks/disk1/hdfsstorage/dfs
/dev/sdc1                       16G  428M   15G   3% /disks/disk2/hdfsstorage/dfs

Can you please help.

Yes the link was helpful. 
As per the property "dfs.datanode.du.reserved", it was configured to use 4.25 GB and hence I consider now that 4.25 GB is allocated for each data directory in a given node. Since I had two data directory partitions, the reserved space combined would be 8.5 GB per node and which brings the configured capacity on each node to be 23.5 GB (32GB - 8.5GB).
I arrived at the following formula === >

Configured Capacity = Total Disk Space allocated for Data Directories (dfs.data.dir) - Reserved Space for Non DFS Use (dfs.datanode.du.reserved)
