Subject Invalid characters in event body
Date Fri, 16 Oct 2015 10:48:05 GMT
Hi all,

I’m trying to ingest data that contains what I think are invalid characters, and Flume is
behaving a bit strangely.  There’s a single agent with a Spooling Directory source, and
 a HDFS sink, ingesting CSV files to be queried with Drill. Whenever Flume attempts to ingest
the bad row, it doesn’t log any error, but instead writes a truncated row to HDFS. Drill
then fails to query any data including this row, as there is a newline in a quoted CSV string.
Is there any way to try and handle this? I wrote a custom interceptor to replace characters
using a regex with ‘\p{C}’, but that didn’t help.

Data in Spooling directory CSV:
"13 Jan 2013 11:23:11 GMT ","Field 1","Field 2","Field 3","Field���򔪌i�@�V%20�C%20�","Field

Data written to HDFS:
"13 Jan 2013 11:23:11 GMT ","Field 1","Field 2","Field 3","Field���

Output of ‘cat –v’, which prints unprintable characters:
Data in spooling directory:
"13 Jan 2013 11:23:11 GMT ","Field 1","Field 2","Field 3","FieldM-oM-?M-=M-oM-?M-=M-oM-?M-=M-rM-^TM-*M-^LiM-oM-?M-=@M-oM-?M-=V%20M-oM-?M-=C%20M-oM-?M-=","Field

Data written to HDFS:
"13 Jan 2013 11:23:11 GMT ","Field 1","Field 2","Field 3","FieldM-oM-?M-=M-oM-?M-=M-oM-?M-=
