Subject Re: Locked tail files by flume agent on Window
Date Sun, 23 Sep 2012 16:24:54 GMT
Not Flume's agent is locking the file, the fileLock() API from Microsoft is done that. Store()
and load() aren't closing the open file, as they do on Linux.

Please note, Flume pre 1.x (also called FlumeNG) won't be developed anymore actively. You
can use Flume on a Windows System, build natively or over cygwin. Here a Thread about:
