Re: HDFS Non DFS Used (History server)

You can increase space for non-HDFS use by setting dfs.datanode.du.reserved to a larger value. It's set per disk volume. The default is 1G, but we usually set it to 10G. You can increase it further depending on number of your disks and their capacity. However, non HDFS space is not used by History Server but to store for example output of mappers in a MR job.
