Number Of Blocks On One of The DataNodes Is Much Higher Than On Other DataNodes (Doc ID 1663669.1)

Last updated on MAY 12, 2014

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 2.4.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

The number of blocks on one of the datanodes such as the node3 are more than 1.2 million while the other datanodes have an average of half a million blocks. The % of utilization seems to be evenly distributed across the cluster. Hence running the balancer is not doing anything.
