I don't have any experience with Docker, but any agent can receive data via Avro or Thrift source. You could have your application use the corresponding RPC client (Thrift or Avro) to send data to that agent.

I have a quick question. What is the recommended way to integrate Apache Flume with
Docker? One of the ways that I have seen it being implemented is by using the NetCat
Source, and having the applications send the log events to the port that Flume is listening

Is this the recommended way to handle integrating logging Flume and Docker? How are
other people solving this problem?
