I've written a bit more robust example at https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/logging/log4j/branches/BRANCH_2_0_EXPERIMENTAL/rgoers/log4j2-core/src/main/java/org/apache/logging/log4j/core/appender/flume/. The appender can be configured with a list of agents instead of just one. The Manager handles the actual communication and FlumeEvent handles the conversion from a Log4j2 event to a Flume event.

Have a look at the source catalog:


There's the rpcsource, which allows you to use Thrift or Avro to
connect from your java program to the node and deliver messages. But I
don't have any simple example on how to use it handy.

Actually, when I look at it a bit closer, the log4j appender source
code should serve as an example of how to communicate via Avro from
your Java program:
