Dstributing work in Flume 1.4

  • #30371

    I looked at Apache Flume 1.4 documentation and its not clear about how to distribute the work accross nodes. I have to fetch data from multiple sources and multiple query terms for each source and need to poll them regularly. Older versions of Flume for flume-master and flume-node(s). Cloudera release notes says these concepts are replaced by Agents. But how to distribute the agent(s)?
    Should I manually create multiple configurations on each node and start agent on each of the node? or can be done through any centralized mechanism?

    Hi Maruti,
    The new generation of flume does not have a centralized mechanism. The agents are independent. You would have to launch each agent on each of the nodes.
