Can we clear appcache or file cache in Hadoop and is there Any Impact on the application use if we clear appcache or file cache?

New Contributor

We need to remove or move hadoop/yarn/local appcache or file cache which is taking lot of space .

Is there any impact while using applications which uses hadoop if we remove or move appcache or file cache ?

You shouldn't move the directories under hadoop/yarn/local while the NodeManager service is running as it will affect running application containers. Stop the NodeManager service on that node, perform the move operation and then start it again
