Hbase root directory

  • #27602

    Guys, I am sorry for the stupid questions, but does anybody know where hbase-site.xml property actually points in the directory via SSH?


    i would like to monitor that directory while i insert data into hbase table.

    Thank you.

    Hi Marat,

    That points to a directory within HDFS. To monitor it via ssh you would need to use the ‘hadoop dfs’ commands. To see the files changing you could use ‘hadoop dfs -ls /apps/hbase/data’
