HDFS Balancer slow in CDH5.3.2

Hi All,

 

We recently added 11 new datanodes to CDH5.3.2 cluster which has 20 datanodes.

I see HDFS Balancer slowly moving blocks say avg 4000 blocks peer 10 mins. I' updated Balancer Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hdfs-site.xml

with 

 

<property>
<name>dfs.balance.bandwidthPerSec</name>
<value>3048576000</value>
</property>

 

still i see alomst same speed, i checked network graphs also

 

Is there any other setting required?

 

Thanks,

Venu

I'm pretty sure that this configuration should go not to Balancer "Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hdfs-site.xml", but in all Datanodes "Advanced Configuration Snippet (Safety Valve) for hdfs-site.xml" and DNs should be restarted after configuration changes.

It should go to both of those valves with the same value currently, until HDFS-10289 gets done in future.
