>                 Key: FLUME-3341
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-3341
>             Project: Flume
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Sinks+Sources
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.0, 1.9.0
>            Reporter: Ming Zhekai
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: 1.8.0
>   Original Estimate: 120h
>          Time Spent: 10m
>  Remaining Estimate: 119h 50m
> As is described in Flume-3342, renaming a file may cause data duplication. But moreover,
if the original file was opened by flume before and not closed yet, flume reopens it while
not freeing its original file handles. And then I delete the new file, but after the idle
time, flume just closes the new file handle and forgets to close its original file handles,
leading to a handle leak. It can be found by "lsof | grep "deleted".
> This bug is triggered by using  Log4j to roll log files. To avoid losing data when
rolling, I use regex to include both current log file and old log files in the taildir path.
