Hadoop Datanode configuration RAM and Cores

+4 votes

I am using Hadoop cluster with 9 nodes. I would like to know what is the basic datanode configuration in Hadoop cluster.

I am using following configuration on Namenode and Datanode.

RAM = 4GB Cores = 4 Disk = 8 ( Total 16GB storage space)

Running sample sort and word count jobs to check the hadoop network performance.
Is the configuration I have chosen is right ?

I am running hadoop-2.4.0 cluster. Each datanode has 10 disks, directories for 10 disks are specified in

A few days ago, I modified of a datanode () to reduce disks. so two disks were excluded from, after the datanode was restarted, I expected that the namenode would update block locations. In other words, I thought the namenode should remove from block locations associated with blocks which were stored on excluded disks, but the namenode didnt update the block locations...

In my understanding, datanode send a block report to the namenode when datanode start so the namenode should update block locations immediately.

Is a bug? Could anyone please explain?
