Subject event ordering semantics
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 12:10:05 GMT

I am trying to figure out what are the exact semantics of flume with 
respect to event ordering. I'm interested in both single agent and multi 
agent setups.

The current documentation (http://flume.apache.org/FlumeUserGuide.html) 
doesn't seem to mention anything about this topic.

Older documentation and posts to this mailing list, seem to suggest that 
flume doesn't guarantee in order delivery of events, but also seem to 
suggest that "it depends".

for example:

- https://github.com/cloudera/flume/wiki/FAQ (last topic)

Can somebody clarify this for me? If flume doesn't generally guarantee 
in order delivery, is it still achievable with a more restricted set of 
features? Or is this simply not a good idea, and should I look elsewhere 
with these kinds of requirements (or relax my requirements)?

Thanks in advance,
