@wert_1311 This could be a known issue with HDFS. 

 

The issue with fsck command was introduced in HDFS-2538 when fsck doesn't show dots by default. fsck uses http port, 9871, which has the 60 seconds timeout hardcoded. The issue is observed when the command executed for more than the configured timeout. 

Use -showprogress parameter that can help you. 


# hdfs fsck / -showprogress

Cheers!

Hey @GangWar  Thank you for the solution but when I use this comman:

 

hdfs fsck / -showprogress

It shows all the corrupted blocks but not delete these block I check the blocks status form my CM UI its still the same. I run this command for 2 hours but none of missing block is delete.
When I use this Command:

hdfs fsck / | egrep -v '^\.+$' | grep -v replica
hdfs fsck / -delete

Its give the same error that highlighted by @wert_1311 in the above post. First time this commands works and it delete some blocks but after some time I am facing this issue while running this command.

 

Here I am attaching the snapshot

This seems a Connection time out to the name node so you may want to check if there is any Network issue or something else going on with CM's help. That should give you some clue.
