Subject [GitHub] nifi issue #490: NIFI-1959 Added length and timestamp to detect rollover
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2016 23:17:47 GMT
Github user pvillard31 commented on the issue:
    It remains an issue I have not been able to solve at this point: the case where the new
file contains more data than the tailed file before being moved. In this case we ends up in
the same situation: the new data in not ingested and the processor is not yielded. This situation
should not happen really often... but still... if someone has an idea.
    To reproduce: tail on /tmp/test.log
    echo "test" >> /tmp/test.log
    rm /tmp/test.log
    echo "testtest" >> /tmp/test.log
    In this case, both timestamp and size cannot be used to detect a pseudo-rollover and we
are stuck with the previous state and reader. Not sure to see an easy solution.
