Inodes Exceeded Alarm

Logged As



The volume contains too many files or the size of the namespace container size has exceeded the configured limit.


This alarm indicates that not enough volumes are set up to handle the number of files stored in the cluster or the size of the name container exceeds the limit. Typically, each user or project should have a separate volume. To resolve the name container issue, investigate the cause for the alarm. After careful consideration, create one or more volumes and move data into the new volumes.

See How to handle the VOLUME_ALARM_INODES_EXCEEDED alarm in MapR for more information on resolving this alarm.

Configurable at cluster and volume level. See Configuring the Alarm Threshold Using the CLI for more information.
