+<p>The <a class="externalLink" href="https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=falcon.git;a=blob_plain;f=client/src/main/resources/cluster-0.1.xsd;hb=refs/heads/branch-0.4">Cluster XSD specification</a> is available here:</p>
+<p>A cluster contains different interfaces which are used by Falcon like readonly, write, workflow and messaging. A cluster is referenced by feeds and processes which are on-boarded to Falcon by its name.</p>
+<p>Following are the tags defined in a cluster.xml:</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;cluster colo=&quot;gs&quot; description=&quot;&quot; name=&quot;corp&quot; xmlns=&quot;uri:falcon:cluster:0.1&quot;
+ xmlns:xsi=&quot;http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance&quot;&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>The colo specifies the colo to which this cluster belongs to and name is the name of the cluster which has to  be unique.</p>
+<p>A cluster has varies interfaces as described below:</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+    &lt;interface type=&quot;readonly&quot; endpoint=&quot;hftp://localhost:50010&quot; version=&quot;0.20.2&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A readonly interface specifies the endpoint for Hadoop's HFTP protocol,  this would be used in the context of feed replication.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;interface type=&quot;write&quot; endpoint=&quot;hdfs://localhost:8020&quot; version=&quot;0.20.2&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A write interface specifies the interface to write to hdfs, it's endpoint is the value of fs.default.name. Falcon uses this interface to write system data to hdfs and feeds referencing this cluster are written to hdfs using the same write interface.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;interface type=&quot;execute&quot; endpoint=&quot;localhost:8021&quot; version=&quot;0.20.2&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>An execute interface specifies the interface for job tracker, it's endpoint is the value of mapred.job.tracker.  Falcon uses this interface to submit the processes as jobs on <a href="./JobTracker.html">JobTracker</a> defined here.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;interface type=&quot;workflow&quot; endpoint=&quot;http://localhost:11000/oozie/&quot; version=&quot;3.1&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A workflow interface specifies the interface for workflow engine, example of its endpoint is the value for OOZIE_URL. Falcon uses this interface to schedule the processes referencing this cluster on workflow engine defined here.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;interface type=&quot;registry&quot; endpoint=&quot;thrift://localhost:9083&quot; version=&quot;0.11.0&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A registry interface specifies the interface for metadata catalog, such as Hive Metastore (or HCatalog). Falcon uses this interface to register/de-register partitions for a given database and table. Also, uses this information to schedule data availability events based on partitions in the workflow engine. Although Hive metastore supports both RPC and HTTP, Falcon comes with an implementation for RPC over thrift.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;interface type=&quot;messaging&quot; endpoint=&quot;tcp://localhost:61616?daemon=true&quot; version=&quot;5.4.6&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A messaging interface specifies the interface for sending feed availability messages, it's endpoint is broker url with tcp address.</p>
+<p>A cluster has a list of locations defined:</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;location name=&quot;staging&quot; path=&quot;/projects/falcon/staging&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>Location has the name and the path, name is the type of locations like staging, temp and working. and path is the hdfs path for each location. Falcon would use the location to do intermediate processing of entities in hdfs and hence Falcon should have read/write/execute permission on these locations.</p>
+<p>A cluster has a list of properties: A key-value pair, which are propagated to the workflow engine.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;property name=&quot;brokerImplClass&quot; value=&quot;org.apache.activemq.ActiveMQConnectionFactory&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>Ideally JMS impl class name of messaging engine (brokerImplClass)  should be defined here.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h3>Feed Specification<a name="Feed_Specification"></a></h3>
+<p>The <a class="externalLink" href="https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=falcon.git;a=blob_plain;f=client/src/main/resources/feed-0.1.xsd;hb=refs/heads/branch-0.4">Feed XSD specification</a> is available here.</p>
+<p>A Feed defines various attributes of feed like feed location, frequency, late-arrival handling and retention policies. A feed can be scheduled on a cluster, once a feed is scheduled its retention and replication process are triggered in a given cluster.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;feed description=&quot;clicks log&quot; name=&quot;clicks&quot; xmlns=&quot;uri:falcon:feed:0.1&quot;
+xmlns:xsi=&quot;http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance&quot;&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A feed should have a unique name and this name is referenced by processes as input or output feed.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h4>Storage<a name="Storage"></a></h4>
+<p>Falcon introduces a new abstraction to encapsulate the storage for a given feed which can either be expressed as a path on the file system, File System Storage or a table in a catalog such as Hive, Catalog Storage.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+    &lt;xs:choice minOccurs=&quot;1&quot; maxOccurs=&quot;1&quot;&gt;
+        &lt;xs:element type=&quot;locations&quot; name=&quot;locations&quot;/&gt;
+        &lt;xs:element type=&quot;catalog-table&quot; name=&quot;table&quot;/&gt;
+    &lt;/xs:choice&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>Feed should contain one of the two storage options. Locations on File System or Table in a Catalog.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h5>File System Storage<a name="File_System_Storage"></a></h5>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+        &lt;clusters&gt;
+        &lt;cluster name=&quot;test-cluster&quot;&gt;
+            &lt;validity start=&quot;2012-07-20T03:00Z&quot; end=&quot;2099-07-16T00:00Z&quot;/&gt;
+            &lt;retention limit=&quot;days(10)&quot; action=&quot;delete&quot;/&gt;
+            &lt;locations&gt;
+                &lt;location type=&quot;data&quot; path=&quot;/hdfsDataLocation/${YEAR}/${MONTH}/${DAY}/${HOUR}/${MINUTE}&quot;/&gt;
+                &lt;location type=&quot;stats&quot; path=&quot;/projects/falcon/clicksStats&quot; /&gt;
+                &lt;location type=&quot;meta&quot; path=&quot;/projects/falcon/clicksMetaData&quot; /&gt;
+            &lt;/locations&gt;
+        &lt;/cluster&gt;
+..... more clusters &lt;/clusters&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>Feed references a cluster by it's name, before submitting a feed all the referenced cluster should be submitted to Falcon. type: specifies whether the referenced cluster should be treated as a source or target for a feed. A feed can have multiple source and target clusters. If the type of cluster is not specified then the cluster is not considered for replication. Validity of a feed on cluster specifies duration for which this feed is valid on this cluster. Retention specifies how long the feed is retained on this cluster and the action to be taken on the feed after the expiry of retention period. The retention limit is specified by expression frequency(times), ex: if feed should be retained for at least 6 hours then retention's limit=&quot;hours(6)&quot;. The field partitionExp contains partition tags. Number of partition tags has to be equal to number of partitions specified in feed schema. A partition tag can be a wildcard(*), a static string or an expression. Atleast one of t
 he strings has to be an expression. Location specifies where the feed is available on this cluster. This is an optional parameter and path can be same or different from the global locations tag value ( it is mentioned outside the clusters tag ) . This tag provides the user to flexibility to have feed at different locations on different clusters. If this attribute is missing then the default global location is picked from the feed definition. Also the individual location tags data, stats, meta are optional.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+ &lt;location type=&quot;data&quot; path=&quot;/projects/falcon/clicks&quot; /&gt;
+ &lt;location type=&quot;stats&quot; path=&quot;/projects/falcon/clicksStats&quot; /&gt;
+ &lt;location type=&quot;meta&quot; path=&quot;/projects/falcon/clicksMetaData&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A location tag specifies the type of location like data, meta, stats and the corresponding paths for them. A feed should at least define the location for type data, which specifies the HDFS path pattern where the feed is generated periodically. ex: type=&quot;data&quot; path=&quot;/projects/TrafficHourly/${YEAR}-${MONTH}-${DAY}/traffic&quot; The granularity of date pattern in the path should be atleast that of a frequency of a feed. Other location type which are supported are stats and meta paths, if a process references a feed then the meta and stats paths are available as a property in a process.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h5>Catalog Storage (Table)<a name="Catalog_Storage_Table"></a></h5>
+<p>A table tag specifies the table URI in the catalog registry as:</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+catalog:$database-name:$table-name#partition-key=partition-value);partition-key=partition-value);*
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>This is modeled as a URI (similar to an ISBN URI). It does not have any reference to Hive or HCatalog. Its quite generic so it can be tied to other implementations of a catalog registry. The catalog implementation specified in the startup config provides implementation for the catalog URI.</p>
+<p>Top-level partition has to be a dated pattern and the granularity of date pattern should be at least that of a frequency of a feed.</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+    &lt;xs:complexType name=&quot;catalog-table&quot;&gt;
+        &lt;xs:annotation&gt;
+            &lt;xs:documentation&gt;
+                catalog specifies the uri of a Hive table along with the partition spec.
+                uri=&quot;catalog:$database:$table#(partition-key=partition-value);+&quot;
+                Example: catalog:logs-db:clicks#ds=${YEAR}-${MONTH}-${DAY}
+            &lt;/xs:documentation&gt;
+        &lt;/xs:annotation&gt;
+        &lt;xs:attribute type=&quot;xs:string&quot; name=&quot;uri&quot; use=&quot;required&quot;/&gt;
+    &lt;/xs:complexType&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>Examples:</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;table uri=&quot;catalog:default:clicks#ds=${YEAR}-${MONTH}-${DAY}-${HOUR};region=${region}&quot; /&gt;
+&lt;table uri=&quot;catalog:src_demo_db:customer_raw#ds=${YEAR}-${MONTH}-${DAY}-${HOUR}&quot; /&gt;

+    &lt;/partitions&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A feed can define multiple partitions, if a referenced cluster defines partitions then the number of partitions in feed has to be equal to or more than the cluster partitions.</p>

+</pre></div>
+<p>An availabilityFlag specifies the name of a file which when present/created in a feeds data directory,  the feed is termed as available. ex: _SUCCESS, if this element is ignored then Falcon would consider the presence of feed's data directory as feed availability.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h4>Frequency<a name="Frequency"></a></h4>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+    &lt;frequency&gt;minutes(20)&lt;/frequency&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A feed has a frequency which specifies the frequency by which this feed is generated.  ex: it can be generated every hour, every 5 minutes, daily, weekly etc. valid frequency type for a feed are minutes, hours, days, months. The values can be negative, zero or positive.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h4>Late Arrival<a name="Late_Arrival"></a></h4>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+    &lt;late-arrival cut-off=&quot;hours(6)&quot; /&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>A late-arrival specifies the cut-off period till which the feed is expected to arrive late and should be honored be processes referring to it as input feed by rerunning the instances in case the data arrives late with in a cut-off period. The cut-off period is specified by expression frequency(times), ex: if the feed can arrive late upto 8 hours then late-arrival's cut-off=&quot;hours(8)&quot;</p>
+<p><b>Note:</b> This will only apply for <a href="./FileSystem.html">FileSystem</a> storage but not Table storage until a future time.</p></div>

+<h5>Cluster<a name="Cluster"></a></h5>
+<p>The cluster on which the workflow should run. A process should contain one or more clusters. Cluster definition for the cluster name gives the end points for workflow execution, name node, job tracker, messaging and so on. Each cluster inturn has validity mentioned, which tell the times between which the job should run on that specified cluster.  Syntax:</p>

+<h5>Parallel<a name="Parallel"></a></h5>
+<p>Parallel defines how many instances of the workflow can run concurrently. It should be a positive interger &gt; 0. For example, concurrency of 1 ensures that only one instance of the workflow can run at a time. The next instance will start only after the running instance completes. Syntax:</p>

+<h5>Timeout<a name="Timeout"></a></h5>
+<p>A optional Timeout specifies the maximum time an instance waits for a dataset before being killed by the workflow engine, a time out is specified like frequency. If timeout is not specified, falcon computes a default timeout for a process based on its frequency, which is six times of the frequency of process or 30 minutes if computed timeout is less than 30 minutes.</p>

+<div class="section">
+<h5>Frequency<a name="Frequency"></a></h5>
+<p>Frequency defines how frequently the workflow job should run. For example, hours(1) defines the frequency as hourly, days(7) defines weekly frequency. The values for timeunit can be minutes/hours/days/months and the frequency number should be a positive integer &gt; 0.  Syntax:</p>

+<div class="section">
+<h5>Validity<a name="Validity"></a></h5>
+<p>Validity defines how long the workflow should run. It has 3 components - start time, end time and timezone. Start time and end time are timestamps defined in yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm'Z' format and should always be in UTC. Timezone is used to compute the next instances starting from start time. The workflow will start at start time and end before end time specified on a given cluster. So, there will not be a workflow instance at end time. Syntax:</p>
+<div class="source">

+<p>The hourly workflow will start on March 11th 2012 at 00:40 PST, the next instances will be at 01:40 PST, 03:40 PDT, 04:40 PDT and so on till 23:40 PDT. So, there will be just 23 instances of the workflow for March 11th 2012 because of DST switch.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h5>Inputs<a name="Inputs"></a></h5>
+<p>Inputs define the input data for the workflow. The workflow job will start executing only after the schedule time and when all the inputs are available. There can be 0 or more inputs and each of the input maps to a feed. The path and frequency of input data is picked up from feed definition. Each input should also define start and end instances in terms of <a href="./FalconDocumentation.html">EL expressions</a> and can optionally specify specific partition of input that the workflow requires. The components in partition should be subset of partitions defined in the feed.</p>
+<p>For each input, Falcon will create a property with the input name that contains the comma separated list of input paths. This property can be used in workflow actions like pig scripts and so on.</p>
+<p>Syntax:</p>
+<div class="source">
+<pre>
+&lt;process name=&quot;[process name]&quot;&gt;

+        ...
+    &lt;/inputs&gt;
+...
+&lt;/process&gt;
+
+</pre></div>
+<p>The input for the workflow is a hourly feed and takes 0th and 1st hour data of today(the day when the workflow runs). If the workflow is running for 2012-03-01T06:40Z, the inputs are /projects/bootcamp/feed1/2012-03-01-00/*/US and /projects/bootcamp/feed1/2012-03-01-01/*/US. The property for this input is input1=/projects/bootcamp/feed1/2012-03-01-00/*/US,/projects/bootcamp/feed1/2012-03-01-01/*/US</p>

+<p>There are 2 engines supported today.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h6>Oozie<a name="Oozie"></a></h6>
+<p>As part of oozie workflow engine support, users can embed a oozie workflow. Refer to oozie <a class="externalLink" href="http://incubator.apache.org/oozie/overview.html">workflow overview</a> and <a class="externalLink" href="http://incubator.apache.org/oozie/docs/3.1.3/docs/WorkflowFunctionalSpec.html">workflow specification</a> for details.</p>

+
+</pre></div>
+<p>This defines the workflow engine to be oozie and the workflow xml is defined at /projects/bootcamp/workflow/workflow.xml. The libraries are at /projects/bootcamp/workflow/lib.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h6>Pig<a name="Pig"></a></h6>
+<p>Falcon also adds the Pig engine which enables users to embed a Pig script as a process.</p>
+<p>Example:</p>

+<div class="source">
+<pre>$input_filter
+</pre></div></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h6>Hive<a name="Hive"></a></h6>
+<p>Falcon also adds the Hive engine as part of Hive Integration which enables users to embed a Hive script as a process. This would enable users to create materialized queries in a declarative way.</p>

+<div class="section">
+<h5>Retry<a name="Retry"></a></h5>
+<p>Retry policy defines how the workflow failures should be handled. Two retry policies are defined: backoff and exp-backoff(exponential backoff). Depending on the delay and number of attempts, the workflow is re-tried after specific intervals. Syntax:</p>

+<p>The workflow is re-tried after 10 mins, 20 mins and 30 mins. With exponential backoff, the workflow will be re-tried after 10 mins, 20 mins and 40 mins.</p></div>
+<div class="section">
+<h5>Late data<a name="Late_data"></a></h5>
+<p>Late data handling defines how the late data should be handled. Each feed is defined with a late cut-off value which specifies the time till which late data is valid. For example, late cut-off of hours(6) means that data for nth hour can get delayed by upto 6 hours. Late data specification in process defines how this late data is handled.</p>
+<p>Late data policy defines how frequently check is done to detect late data. The policies supported are: backoff, exp-backoff(exponention backoff) and final(at feed's late cut-off). The policy along with delay defines the interval at which late data check is done.</p>
+<p>Late input specification for each input defines the workflow that should run when late data is detected for that input.</p>
+<p>Syntax:</p>
+<div class="source">
