Re: NameNode per-block memory usage?

I don't remember the exact number, it also depends on which version of
Hadoop you're using

> http://search-hadoop.com/m/O886P1VyVvK1 - 1 GB heap for every object?

It's 1 GB for every *million* objects (files, blocks, etc.). This is a
good rule of thumb, at least for the 0.20.x/1.0.0 series.

Is there a reason you need a more exact estimate?
