Subject Re: Flume-ng Avro RPC and Python
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2012 21:16:36 GMT
Hi,

This is because Flume uses the NettyTransceiver and pyton avro only
supports HTTPTransciever.

This is not using avro, but you should be able to send JSON events to
the HTTPSource (http://flume.apache.org/FlumeUserGuide.html#http-source).
