5.1. Verify HDFS filesystem health

Analyze if the filesystem is healthy.

  1. Run the fsck command on namenode as $HDFS_USER:

    hadoop fsck / -files -blocks -locations > dfs-new-fsck-1.log
  2. Run hdfs namespace and report.

    • List directories.

      hadoop dfs -lsr / > dfs-new-lsr-1.log
    • Run report command to create a list of DataNodes in the cluster.

      hadoop dfsadmin -report > dfs-new-report-1.log
  3. Compare the namespace report before the upgrade and after the upgrade. Verify that user files exist after upgrade.

    dfs-old-fsck-1.log < -- > dfs-new-fsck-1.log
    dfs-old-lsr-1.log < -- > dfs-new-lsr-1.log

    You must do this comparison manually to catch all errors.

  4. From the Namenode WebUI, see if all DataNodes are up and running.
