Subject Re: Equivalent of tailDir for Windows Machines
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2011 15:01:21 GMT
There are other Tail tools for Windows:

http://tailforwin32.sourceforge.net/
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17657

No idea if they will work with flume.

Since Windows' command structure has moved towards PowerShell, I'd be
curious to see if flume-on-windows would support a "PowerShell Pipe"
or something like that.
