HDFS Common Operations

Last updated: 2020-12-21 17:21:45

Tencent Cloud Elastic MapReduce (EMR) Hadoop service has integrated COS. If you enable COS when purchasing an EMR cluster, you can manipulate the data stored in COS using common Hadoop commands as shown below:

#cat data
hadoop fs -cat /usr/hive/warehouse/hivewithhdfs.db/record/data.txt
#Modify the directory or file permission
hadoop fs -chmod -R 777 /usr
#Change the file or directory owner
hadoop fs -chown -R root:root /usr
#Create a folder
hadoop fs -mkdir <paths>
#Send a local file to HDFS
hadoop fs -put <localsrc> ... <dst>
#Copy a local file to HDFS
hadoop fs -copyFromLocal <localsrc> URI
#View the storage usage of a file or directory
hadoop fs -du URI [URI …]
#Delete a file
hadoop fs -rm URI [URI …]
#Set the number of copies of a directory or file
hadoop fs–setrep [-R] [-w] REP PATH [PATH …]
#Check for bad blocks of a cluster file
hadoop fsck <path> [-move | -delete | -openforwrite] [-files [-blocks [-locations | -racks]]]

For more HDFS commands, see the community documentation. If your cluster is a high-availability cluster (dual-namenode), you can see which namenode is active by running following commands:

#nn1 is the ID of the namenode; usually nn1 and nn2.
hdfs haadmin -getServiceState nn1
#View the current cluster report
hdfs dfsadmin -report
#namenode exits safe mode
hdfs dfsadmin -safemode leave
