number of hfiles for a particular hbase table

How do i get to know the number of hfiles of a particular hbase table. IS there a command to know that or we can see it from hbase ui?


Not sure about your usecase, but hfiles per region usually more usefull.

You can check "Num storesfiles" per region per regionserver on below link


or, If you want to count all hfiles, then you can iterate over hdfs directory to count the number of files.(files reside in below directory)
