Count of lines for each file in HDFS

Count of lines for each file in HDFS

how can I get the count of multiple csv files that resides in a single directory?

Exp: $ hadoop fs -cat /user/cloudera/output/*.csv | wc -l

Expectation: Should display each file count separately


Tried the below command as well which is giving me the total count of all the files but not the count of each file individually. Could you please help me on this?

hadoop fs -ls /user/cloudera/output/*.csv | awk '{print $8}' | xargs hadoop fs -cat | wc -l
