These warning messages indicates that the growth rate was higher than the one that is defined in the alert growth rate threshold in a specified day/week. Normally this happens when we run some excessive job or perform load test to store large data on HDFS. We can tune the threshold based on our requirement or based on our growth observations by clicking on the "Edit" button on the alert definition on the Ambari UI.

Can you please share the complete Alert stack (if it is WARN/CRITICAL)?

Usually the variance for this alert shows the alert about how quick your namenode heap usage is growing.

You can check the following link to findout if you have tuned the NameNode Heap size properly based on the number of files?
