Regarding Disk Usage Reporting Different than 'hadoop fs -du -s -h' (Doc ID 2039045.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 11, 2016

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 3.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

Why there is a discrepancy in the space usage for /user/ directory using "du" command (showing 500 GB) versus what is being reported on the UI (console) as 1.5 TB?

For example

>hadoop fs -du -s -h /user/ss
508.9 G /user/ss


And as per disk usage report ( hdfs --> File Browser --> Custom report ) generated disk space usage states 1.5 TB
