Hadoop: How to find which file is healthy

Hadoop provides file system health check utility which is called "fsck". Basically, it checks the health of all the files under a path It also checks the health of all the files under the '/'(root).
  • BIN/HADOOP fsck / - It checks the health of all the files
  • BIN/HADOOP fsck /test/ - It checks the health of files under the path
By default fsck utility cannot do anything for under replicated blocks and over replicated blocks. Hadoop itself heal the blocks.

How to delete corrupted blocks
