Subject Restricting flume activities to a subnet on a multihomed set of machines
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 13:46:01 GMT
Hi Flume users list.

We are rolling out a new Flume architecture. We have separate interfaces for Flume data transfer
and for management – these are segregated by VLAN as well as subnet. Is there a way to dictate
to the agent and collector nodes that they should communicate on one particular subnet?

I found this ticket: https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/FLUME-359). However, it is old and
it is unclear whether the dev team recognizes that this is a actually a problem.

>From my experience it seems that Flume performs a hostname lookup on a machine to determine
how the node will be identified. Maybe I can kludge the functionality I want with the /etc/hosts
