Subject Re: Deal with duplicates in Flume with a crash.
Date Wed, 03 Dec 2014 21:56:19 GMT
Using the UUID interceptor at the source closest to data origination.. it
will help identify duplicate events after they are delivered.

If it satisfies your use case, the upcoming Hive Sink will mitigate the
problem a little bit (since it uses transactions to write to destination).
