There is nothing out of the box for doing that. But you could write a Windows System Events source and use it with flume.

No, you would need to have some kind of script or application run to read the events and send them to flume. A script that is scheduled to run every 5 minutes and save the events since the last interval to a CSV file that is dropped into a directory for the spoolDir source to pick up, for example.

Hello -


I am new to Apache Flume and I am trying to understand if I can collect and aggregate Windows Systems Events natively in Apache Flume?

Thanks in advance for any pointers and sorry for such a basic question.
