Subject Re: Writing logs collected by chukwa to hbase
Date Sun, 06 Jan 2013 21:17:36 GMT
There are a few things that you need to do:

1. Configure the collector to use HBaseWriter.

Make sure that hadoop and hbase configuration are in the classpath of the

2. Write a demux parser for your log file to store on HBase, and this runs
in chukwa collector.

3. What log4j adaptors and appenders are you using to write the log files?
  I would recommend to use socket appender from Log4j and use socket
adaptor to listen for the incoming data stream.  This will ensure the
records are delimited properly.

Hope this helps.
