Subject Re: Flume-ng 1.3.x HDFSSink - override Hadoop default size for only one of my sinks
Date Sat, 18 May 2013 10:50:32 GMT

The HDFS sink writes back to HDFS, the blocksize is defined in your cluster (for new written
files). If you use the hdfs sink, you should have a hdfs-site.xml which defines the blocksize
(dfs.blocksize). So no, there is now way.

My use case is that I have a number of different protobuf messages that each get written to
their own directories in HDFS.
