hdfs fsck command is a tool used in HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System) to check the health of the file system and diagnose any issues. hdfs fsck can be used to check the consistency of file system metadata, such as block placement and replication, and to detect and correct any inconsistencies.
Here’s an example of using the
hdfs fsck command:
The`/`argument is used to specify the root directory of the file system to be checked. The -files option is used to show the metadata of all files in the file system, including their block locations, replication factors, and block sizes. The -blocks option is used to show the metadata of all blocks in the file system, including their locations and the files they belong to.
The output of the
hdfs fsck command will show the health of the HDFS file system, including the number of files, blocks, and block locations, and any inconsistencies that are detected and corrected. This information can be useful for troubleshooting and ensuring the health and reliability of the HDFS file system.
