Hi Flume masters,

I want to install Flume on a box, and consume local log file as source and send to remote HDFS sink. The log format is private and text (not Avro or JSON format).

I am reading the guide on Flume and many advanced Source configuration, wondering for the plain local log file source, any reference samples? And not sure if Flume could consume the local file while the application is still writing the log file? Thanks.

regards,
Lin
