can you please let me know is there any size limit that is send to trash after delete?? Please advise.
we are trying to delete a file around 6GB but its not getting deleted
you can skip trash
hdfs dfs -rm -r -skipTrash
and need not worry about file size limit. http://hadoop.apache.org/docs/current/hadoop-project-dist/hadoop-common/FileSystemShell.html

Can you send what is the error that you getting with this delete? Unless quotas are set, you should not see any issues with 'Trash' going in.
