Subject RE: about flume-ng agent
Date Thu, 25 Oct 2012 20:59:08 GMT
I was unaware of an HTTPSource, after reviewing the FLUME-1199 issue it may well be the best
use case for us.

That said, while I am manually building and testing the latest snapshot for the Windows side,
our actual Hadoop machines are running CDH4.1.1 which has flume-ng 1.2.0.

When a version of flume-ng containing HTTPSource is packaged along with the rest of the hadoop
distribution I will look at it. As a 'windoze guy' ;-) I do not manage the hadoop systems.

Thank you,
Paul Chavez

Would the new HttpSource work for you?
