Sorry for the long delay... Isaac threw a wrench into things.


Thanks for the replies...  Okay since what I'm looking for isn't
implemented yet, I can manually set the directories for each host
without a big deal...  


How about the output filenames?  Can they be manually set somehow,
perhaps just set a prefix and then let flume append it with the numbered


ie..  app1_log_xxxxxxxxxx




or would I need to create a directory for each and deal with the
672153171-1 filenames?

Hi David,

There's currently an open, unassigned ticket for what you're asking:
     FLUME-1295: RollingFileSink needs to be able to construct directory
path based on escape sequence

Looking at the flume documentation, looks like dynamic paths are only
supported for the HDFS sink and not the file_roll sink.

You can use a Multiplexing channel selector to achieve the same effect
for file_roll sink, but the possible hosts has to be a

predetermined list and not dynamic.
