Subject Writing to HDFS from multiple HDFS agents (separate machines)
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2013 21:54:38 GMT
Hi guys,

I'm new to flume (hdfs for that metter), using the version packaged with
CDH4 (1.3.0) and was wondering how others are maintaining different file
names being written to per HDFS sink.

My initial thought is to create a separate sub-directory in hdfs for each
sink - though I feel like the better way is to somehow prefix each file
with a unique sink id.  Are there any patterns that others are following
for this?
