How to check the namenode status?

avatar
Expert Contributor

As a developer how can I check the current state of a given Namenode? I have tried the getServiceState command but that is only intended for the admins with superuser access. Any command that can be run from the edge node to get the status of a provided namemnode??

You can run the command

hdfs dfsadmin -report

However you may not able to see full output but still can see something like below

You can do a curl command to find out the Active and secondary Namenode for example

curl -u username -H "X-Requested-By: ambari" -X GET http://cluster-hostname:8080/api/v1/clusters//services/HDFS
