Subject Re: Tailing Avro or Thrift files?
Date Wed, 22 Oct 2014 21:11:05 GMT
Hi Otis,




In general, we have seen that most often tailing is difficult to get right - especially in
Java with no way to get access for the inodes, and doing it in a platform agnostic way is
quite impossible.




Do you have a way around these issues?


Thanks,
Hari
