Re: File Sink/Source
Have you tried the JMS Source? It can pick up data directly into Flume.

For example, I will be getting around 5K messages/sec and the size is about 2K. So roughly 10MB a second. If the sink is unable to deliver the messages for 2 hours, that would be 36 million events in the channel.
