Configure storage balancing for DataNodes using Cloudera Manager
You must configure certain
dfs.datanode properties to enable storage
balancing for DataNodes.
- Go to the HDFS service.
- Click the Configuration tab.
- Select .
- Select .
Configure the following properties (you can use the Search box to locate the
dfs.datanode. fsdataset. volume.choosing. policy
org.apache.hadoop. hdfs.server.datanode. fsdataset. AvailableSpaceVolumeChoosingPolicy
Enables storage balancing among the DataNode's volumes.
dfs.datanode. available-space- volume-choosing- policy.balanced- space-threshold
The amount by which volumes are allowed to differ from each other in terms of bytes of free disk space before they are considered imbalanced. The default is 10737418240 (10 GB).
If the free space on each volume is within this range of the other volumes, the volumes will be considered balanced and block assignments will be done on a pure round-robin basis.
dfs.datanode. available-space- volume-choosing- policy.balanced- space-preference- fraction
0.75 (default) What proportion of new block allocations will be sent to volumes with more available disk space than others. The allowable range is 0.0-1.0, but set it in the range 0.5 - 1.0 (that is, 50-100%), since there should be no reason to prefer that volumes with less available disk space receive more block allocations.
