Re: Re: HDFS block physical location
For block to filename mapping, you can get from my previous answer.

For block to harddisk mapping, you may need to traverse all the directory
that used for HDFS, I am sure your OS has the information about which hard
drive is mounted to which directory.

with these two types of information, you can write a small Perl or Python
script to get what you want.


Take look of the namenode.java and see where and how it saves the table of
block information.

Please correct me if there is any mistake.
