    2. When the Log in page opens, enter your user name and password access credentials.

  2. In the Search field of the Clusters page, enter the name of the cluster whose workloads you want to analyze.
  3. From the navigation panel, select File Size Report.
  4. In the File Size Report page, either search for a specific table, or locate the table by sorting the tables by the number of files, the number of partitions, or the table size.
    For example, the File Size Reports shows that the Animantarx table has 7 million files and 913 partitions.

  5. To display details about the table's file size distribution, select a table name.
