1. A Flume Embedded agent would be useful to applications which send data to a Flume agent acting as a "collector". Currently using the RPCClient or HTTPSource, if there is a burst of events or the collector is unavailable the application is responsible for queueing the events. By embedding a Flume agent the application would be configured with a Flume channel alleviating the need to buff�er in the client application.
2. A similar but su�fficiently diff�erent use case would be to replace a Flume agent deployed on the source system. In some environments Flume agents maybe deployed on the source systems simply to have a buff�er crossing the network boundry. In these scenarios the amount of work on the operations team could be reduced by simply embedding a simple agent in the source application. In a similar vane,there are environments where deploying anything but a J2EE application on application servers is troublesome.
They are both should be relatively simple to implement. Hope this helps.

Google searching and the wiki did not pick that up, thanks for the help! I think it would be good to have these use cases directly on Flume's website. On Thu, Feb 13, 2014 at 11:33 PM, Jeff Lord <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
