If I'm adding a file to LakeFS without commiting it. Where is this uncommited file sitting?

Hi @Bill Li, the files should be placed inside the underlaying block storage. The path configured under the repository storage namespace. The metadata is kept in the k/v database and will be written also to the block storage after you commit.

Note that the object you will find will be kept under unique identifiers and not the original names. The logical names mapping is kept in the database and under _lakefs later when you commit.

More information can be found in https://docs.lakefs.io/understand/architecture.html and welcome to ask

@Barak Amar By the underlying block storage, do you mean the object store?

yes
The address will be the place entered when you created the repository, storage namespace - ex: s3://my-bucket/my-path-to-repo-data
