Subject Re: custome serializer
Date Fri, 11 Jan 2013 19:37:05 GMT
There was recently added a HeaderAndText serializer to the Flume Core,
which is available in the latest Git snapshot (git clone
http://github.com/apache/flume). You will need to follow directions in
the developer
compile that download. This documentation is actually a little
incomplete; there are memory issues when trying to compile Flume (due to
the documentation), so the below command is the best way to go about
compiling Flume (run from the Flume directory):

export JAVA_HOME=<your java home> ; export MAVEN_OPTS="-Xmx512M
-XX:MaxPermSize=512M" ; mvn package -DskipTests

This will produce two .tar.gz files in flume/target; you will want to
unpack and use the binaries one. Then you will be able to run the latest
Flume which includes the HeaderAndText serializer, which will write out
(you guessed it) the header and text of a log message to HDFS by setting
the serializer property like so:

...serializer = HEADER_AND_TEXT

This will then output the following line to HDFS:

{header1=value1,header2=value2,...headerN=valueN} <log message>

If you want to write it in a specific way, then you will need to create
your own Serializer. This involves basically copying the
from flume-ng-core/src/main/java/org/apache/flume/serialization/ and
modifying the process(Event e) method (and change the package name). Then
you will compile it into a jar, add that jar to flume's classpath (either
through conf/flume-env.sh or by placing the jar in flume/lib), and then
your serializer property should look like so:

...serializer = <FQCN (fully qualified class name: package+ClassName) of
your new class>$Builder
