Subject setting collector on a remote machine
Date Wed, 08 Sep 2010 06:29:17 GMT

We want to setup a collector on a non HDFS machine 
Is that possible? Will the collector be able to send data to hdfs, we tried setting the writer.hdfs.filesystem
property to point to the hdfs master, but getting the following error:
