RE: Could not instantiate class org.apache.flume.clients.log4jappender
This error is coming because it needs some other jar from FLUME_HOME/lib/ I can’t tell you name of specific jar but I was facing same problem.Put jetty,Jackson,avro,slf4 and some more from  FLUME_HOME/lib/ because every time you will run your script  will give you different error like java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError

REGISTER and -Dpig.additional.libraries both do not work, same error, could not find the class.
If put the particular jars in pig's lib, the following error:

You could try calling 'REGISTER <log4jappender jar>' at the start of your script, or on the command line by adding -Dpig.additional.libraries=<log4jappender jar> to your Pig call. I don't know if that will work or not though.

You could try placing it in pig's lib folder.

You also need to include the flume-ng-sdk jar the same way as the log4jappender one, as the sdk is a dependency of the appender.

Actually I have append the FLUME_HOME/lib/ to my CLASSPATH.
Whether there is some problem in my PIG log4j.properties?
Do you have any experience using log4jappender on PIG?

Put flume-log4j-appender<https://repository.cloudera.com/content/repositories/releases/com/cloudera/flume-log4j-appender/0.9.4-cdh3u1/flume-log4j-appender-0.9.4-cdh3u1.jar>.jar in CLASSPATH. Jar can be found in FLUME_HOME/lib/

Subject: Could not instantiate class org.apache.flume.clients.log4jappender

I'm a newbie for the Flume, and I just set up flume for a test.
I want to use the log4jappender to get log info from PIG scripts, the log4j.properties is:

log4j.appender.flume = org.apache.flume.clients.log4jappender.Log4jAppender

log4j.appender.flume.Hostname = localhost

log4j.appender.flume.Port = 41414


And for the flume.config:

a1.sources = r1

a1.sinks = k1

a1.channels = c1

# Describe/configure the source

a1.sources.r1.type = avro

a1.sources.r1.bind = localhost

a1.sources.r1.port = 41414

# Describe the sink

a1.sinks.k1.type = logger

# Use a channel which buffers events in memory

a1.channels.c1.type = memory

a1.channels.c1.capacity = 1000

a1.channels.c1.transactionCapacity = 100

# Bind the source and sink to the channel

a1.sources.r1.channels = c1

a1.sinks.k1.channel = c1

But I got the following error when run a pig script:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.flume.clients.log4jappender.Log4jAppender
