Loved working with Flume 1.2 – very easy and simple configuration, it was a pleasure to work with. Managed to “tail –F” logs from unix server and into a hdfs cluster. The problem started when I also needed to push logs from a Windows application server.  Spent three days researching on how to install flume on Windows and run  a deamon/agent that will push the logs to the Avro source I successfully configured and ran on Unix. No luck. So I am looking t alternative. Is there other framework available out there to help me with my issue. What about scribe?
