HDFS block size and file zie

HDFS block size and file zie

Explorer

Hi Cloudera,

 

What happen if a file size is small than the block size in this case it is set to 64MB.

Let say if there is 10MB file stored in hdfs then what will happen for the remaining 54MB space? will it use by othet file or will it get wasted?

 

Regards,

Neelesh
