Change the File Size Restriction for the File Browser (optional)

The Hue File Browser will not open files that are 1.0 GB or greater.

If you want to change file size restriction, follow these steps:

  1. In the [[hdfs_clusters]] section of the hue.ini, edit the value of the file_size property.
    # File size restriction for viewing file (float)
    # '1.0' - default 1 GB file size restriction
    # '0' - no file size restrictions
    # >0  - set file size restriction in gigabytes, ex. 0.5, 1.0, 1.2...
  2. Restart Hue so that the changes will take effect. See Starting the Hue Webserver.
