"Non DFS used" can be calculated by the following formula:

Non DFS Used = Configured Capacity - Remaining Space - DFS Used

Noting that Configured Capacity = Total Disk Space - Reserved Space

Therefore, Non DFS Used = (Total Disk Space - Reserved Space) - Remaining Space - DFS Used

Reserved Space is set by the property dfs.datanode.du.reserved

@slachterman : i've read this formula, and I know this property

But i want to know what exactly occupied this space ?

@mayki wogno

It's essentially non-HDFS data in dfs.datanode.data.dir. This could include log files, intermediate shuffle output from MapReduce jobs, local data files (if you put them on a data node), etc. You can use du or a similar tool to investigate further.

dfs.data.dirs is not define in my cluster so where non-HDFS data are stored ?

dfs.datanode.data.dirs is the same than dfs.data.dirs?

Sorry, corrected typo. dfs.datanode.data.dir is correct.
