S3 counters in HDP 1.3

  • #48144


    I’m not sure if this is the right forum but the question relates to FS counters.

    I’m running HDP 1.3 on AWS and I don’t see the job counters for S3_bytes_read and S3_bytes_written when I’m accessing (reading,writing) data that resides in S3. I had the counters when I used CDH (3 and 4) and I also see them in HDP 2.0 but for some reason they’re not there in HDP 1.3.

    Any ideas on where they are and how to get these counters to work?

    Hi Snoot,
    So you are using S3 rather than HDFS correct for your data storage?




    I’m not replacing HDFS with S3 but rather I use both – I didn’t set the configuration files for a single S3 access/secret but I rather use it in a manner such as this in Pig:

    src = load 's3n://access1:secret1@bucket1/path1' using PigStorage(',') ;
    store dst into 's3n://access2:secret2@bucket2/path2' using PigStorage(',');


    Small correction – What I’m looking for is s3n_byte_read and not s3_bytes_read.


    Any idea?
