How to check a HDFS directory size?

Big Data Hadoop

Hi Guys,

I am new to Hadoop. I have created some directories in the cluster. I want to check the size of the directory. how can I do that?



The size of the HDFS directory can be found using a single command. Hadoop includes the command within the file system that is represented below.

$ hadoop fs -du -s -h /path/to/dir
