Manually distribute data across datanodes in hadoop cluster

Manually distribute data across datanodes in hadoop cluster

New Contributor

Hadoop distribute data equally across all the data nodes. Is there any way to change the way how it distribute the data. I want to give more data to that data node which has more processing power/memory.

I would probably stop the slower datanodes first and then run balancer, if you want to get sophisticated, you can try writing your own balancer job. Great question!
