What is the HDFS command to know the HDFS free space. Earlier I was using the web HDFS UI to view the consumed & free space in HDFS. But I was wondering that whether there is any command to know the available space?

You can use dfsadmin which runs a admin client. Use this command:

hadoop dfsadmin -report

For more detail check out this official documentation.
