7. Verify HDFS filesystem health

Analyze if the filesystem is healthy.

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

    hdfs fsck / -files -blocks -locations > dfs-new-fsck-1.log

  2. Run hdfs namespace and report.

    1. List directories.

      hdfs dfs -ls -R / > dfs-new-lsr-1.log

    2. Run report command to create a list of DataNodes in the cluster.

      hdfs dfsadmin -report > dfs-new-report-1.log

  3. Compare the namespace report from before the upgrade with the report 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.
