HDFS metadata access.

HDFS metadata access.

New Contributor

We are looking to extract HDFS datasets from hadoop cluster. i

 

s it possible to retrieve all files from name cluster as listed in http://blog.cloudera.com/blog/2009/08/hadoop-default-ports-quick-reference/ reference using /listpaths on namenode? Is /listpaths be used with 5.7+ version of cloudera?  

 

Are there any other option to extract all HDFS files details using Cloudera Manager? is it require to have admin access to use /listpaths or manager to list all HDFS files for all users? We used Cloudera Navigator API to retrieve HDFS datasets for all users. is there any alternative option to retrieve similar information?
