How to make "hdfs dfs -du" command show 2 size columns "Size - Size with replication"

Rising Star

I am tyring to get this output. Nevertheless some articles points out this is due to a version matter, which I doubt, since I've seen this behavior on multiple environments with different versions is just that I don't know how to enable it.

If someone can point me to the right path I would highly appreciate it.

Hello dnavarro.

 

Thank you for asking... Actually my question was because I wasn't getting complete size of hdfs that I have on the output command hdfs -du against the size I was watching on the ambari UI. There was a significant difference on it.

 

At the end, it turned up that that difference was due to that hdp 2.6.5 version command hdfs dfs -du is not taking in count the snapshots sizes, therefore, there we have the missmatching I was looking since the beginning and why I needed that output.

 

Just keep in mind that for version grater than 2.6.5 you need to take snapshots size separately if you want to check entire hdfs size

I see, thanks for the update and closing the loop on the difference.
