Managing a Tenant Directory

Updated at: Mar 25, 2021 GMT+08:00

Scenario

You can manage the HDFS storage directory used by a specific tenant on MRS. The management operations include adding a tenant directory, modifying the directory file quota, modifying the storage space, and deleting a directory.

Prerequisites

  • A tenant associated with HDFS storage resources has been added.
  • You have synchronized IAM users (on the Dashboard tab page, click Click to synchronize on the right side of IAM User Sync to synchronize IAM users).
    Figure 1 Synchronizing IAM users

Procedure

  • View a tenant directory.
    1. On the MRS details page, click Tenants.
      Figure 2 Tenants

      For MRS 1.8.10 or earlier, see Managing a Tenant Directory. For MRS 3.0.2 or later, see Overview.

    2. In the tenant list on the left, click the target tenant.
    3. Click the Resources tab.
    4. View the HDFS Storage table.
      • The Maximum Number of Files/Directories column indicates the quotas for the file and directory quantity of the tenant directory.
      • The Space Quota column indicates storage space size of tenant directories.
  • Add a tenant directory.
    1. On the MRS details page, click Tenants.
      Figure 3 Tenants

      For MRS 1.8.10 or earlier, see Managing a Tenant Directory. For MRS 3.0.2 or later, see Overview.

    2. In the tenant list on the left, click the tenant whose HDFS storage directory needs to be added.
    3. Click the Resources tab.
    4. In the HDFS Storage table, click Create Directory.
      • Set Path to a tenant directory path.
        • If the current tenant is not a sub-tenant, the new path is created in the HDFS root directory.
        • If the current tenant is a sub-tenant, the new path is created in the specified directory.

        A complete HDFS storage directory can contain a maximum of 1,023 characters. An HDFS directory name contains digits, letters, spaces, and underscores (_). The name cannot start or end with a space.

      • Set Maximum Number of Files/Directories to the quotas of file and directory quantity.

        Maximum Number of Files/Directories is optional. Its value ranges from 1 to 9223372036854775806.

      • Set Storage Space Quota to the storage space size of the tenant directory.

        The value of Storage Space Quota ranges from 1 to 8796093022208.

        To ensure data reliability, one backup is automatically generated for each file saved in HDFS, that is, two copies are generated in total. The HDFS storage space indicates the total disk space occupied by all these copies. For example, if the value of Storage Space Quota is set to 500, the actual space for storing files is about 250 MB (500/2 = 250).

    5. Click OK. The system creates tenant directories in the HDFS root directory.
  • Modify a tenant directory.
    1. On the MRS details page, click Tenants.
      Figure 4 Tenants

      For MRS 1.8.10 or earlier, see Managing a Tenant Directory. For MRS 3.0.2 or later, see Overview.

    2. In the tenant list on the left, click the tenant whose HDFS storage directory needs to be modified.
    3. Click the Resources tab.
    4. In the HDFS Storage table, click Modify in the Operation column of the specified tenant directory.
      • Set Maximum Number of Files/Directories to the quotas of file and directory quantity.

        Maximum Number of Files/Directories is optional. Its value ranges from 1 to 9223372036854775806.

      • Set Storage Space Quota to the storage space size of the tenant directory.

        The value of Storage Space Quota ranges from 1 to 8796093022208.

        To ensure data reliability, one backup is automatically generated for each file saved in HDFS, that is, two copies are generated in total. The HDFS storage space indicates the total disk space occupied by all these copies. For example, if the value of Storage Space Quota is set to 500, the actual space for storing files is about 250 MB (500/2 = 250).

    5. Click OK.
  • Delete a tenant directory.
    1. On the MRS details page, click Tenants.
      Figure 5 Tenants

      For MRS 1.8.10 or earlier, see Managing a Tenant Directory. For MRS 3.0.2 or later, see Overview.

    2. In the tenant list on the left, click the tenant whose HDFS storage directory needs to be deleted.
    3. Click the Resources tab.
    4. In the HDFS Storage table, click Delete in the Operation column of the specified tenant directory.

      The default HDFS storage directory set during tenant creation cannot be deleted. Only the newly added HDFS storage directory can be deleted.

    5. Click OK. The tenant directory is deleted.
