You would need to tune your heap in accordance with the number of files. The tuning guideline is in document https://docs.cloudera.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.5/bk_command-line-installation/content/configuri...

 

If you would like to get count of files, You may run hdfs dfs -count /

Hi @venkatsambath 

 

Appericate your help, would like some assistance in configuring NN heap size, would like to know what would be the best way to move forward:

  1. Increase NN heap via Cloudera Manager (HDFS>Config> NN>Heap (HA Cluster)) OR
  2. Changing it via  /etc/hadoop/conf/hadoop-env.sh (HADOOP_NAMENODE_OPTS)

Kindly Advise

 

Regards

Amn
