Thanks Jay.

I am confused to set the parameters into the Ambari.

Lets, the already set parameter into the Ambari is below:

Now I want to set the new parameters, Condition below:

a) Namenode is going to have more than 8 million files

So, I need to configure java heap with new generation heap and max new gen heap for Namenode heap size.

You can set:

NameNode new generation size = 768
NameNode maximum new generation size = 768

.

Permanent Generation values you can leave default. Because from JDK 1.8 onwards there is no concept of Permanent Generation it is replaced with the MetaSpace.
