Subject Re: HDFS custom escape sequence
Date Mon, 10 Jun 2013 22:04:14 GMT
You should be able to use %{headerName} to replace the escape sequence in the HDFS sink. For
example if you have a header "topic" with value "flume", an HDFS path that looks like: 

hdfs://nameservice/user/flume/%{topic} will drop the event into user/flume/flume.
