APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Directory size is displayed in the Size column of the
    File/Directory details table. The BI 2.0 release shows the size
    of the directory as the sum of its contents including
    sub-directories and files. For the BI 2.1 release, the directory
     size is shown as the total number of sub-directories and files
    contained by the directory selected. Therefore, user cannot tell
     the size of a directory on the Files tab anymore for the BI 2.1
     release, due to the change of behavior.
    

Local fix

  • Use Hadoop fs command to check the file size.
     Option1: A user with the BigInsights Data Admin role can run
    Hadoop FS command "hadoop fs -du /<full_path_of_dir>" from the
    command line prompt on the Files tab, to display a list of
    sub-directories contained and their size in bytes.
     Option2: User with SSH access to the BI Console node of the
    cluster can also SSH to the BI Console node and then run the
    same command as the BigInsights Administrator User (biadmin by
    default)
