Subject RE: sleep() in script doesn't work when called by exec Source
Date Tue, 20 Aug 2013 16:15:47 GMT
Yes, I am curious what you mean as well. When testing I had dropped a few 15GB files in the
spoolDir and while they processed slowly they did complete. In fact, my only issue with that
test was the last hop HDFS sinks couldn't keep up and I had to add a couple more to keep upstream
channels from filling up.

Can you share the details of this?  It shouldn't die with large files.

Thanks Brock.

I tried spooling directory, if the file dropped in spoolDir was too large, flume also died.
There should be a blocking.
Will start a standalone script process to drop small files.

In your case I would look at the spooling directory source.

I am testing with apache-flume-1.4.0-bin.
I made a naive python script for exec source to do throttling by calling sleep() function.
But the sleep() doesn't work when called by exec source.
Any ideas about this or do you have some simply solution for throttling instead of a custom

Flume config:

agent.sources = src1

agent.sources.src1.type = exec

agent.sources.src1.command = read-file-throttle.py



import time



with open("apache.log") as infile:

    for line in infile:

        line = line.strip()

        print line

        count += 1

        if count % 50000 == 0:

            now_time = time.time()

            diff = now_time - pre_time

            if diff < 10:

                #print "sleeping %s seconds ..." % (diff)


                pre_time = now_time

Thank you very much.
