Subject Re: Sinking data to a Node.js server/listener

Should it be assumed that structured data are transferred using flume and
that's why Avro is mentioned? One easy solution I can see would be to use a
syslog output that would actually point to your nodejs instance (and not a
real syslog endpoint).
