Subject [jira] Commented: (CHUKWA-389) Send chunks directly from a log4j appender to the collector without writing to local drive
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2009 23:23:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CHUKWA-389?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12756284#action_12756284

Jerome Boulon commented on CHUKWA-389:
--------------------------------------

I agree on that ;-) but we don't need an agent on every single box. 
We may need a forwarder in between that will receive data from XXX hosts and forward to the
collector if a collector is not able to handle that many open socket (DAG) or just add another
collector if the number of file on HDFS does not matter to you.

> Currently Chukwa required to first write the data to the local drive and run an agent
on every single box in order to be able to collect logs.
> This is a good solution if you cannot afford to loose any data but sometime you don't
want to run an agent on very single box.
> In that case, a new log4J appender could be used to send data directly from the application
to a collector.
