Re: scale of File Tail
Huge file is better for file tailing adaptor actually.  FileTailing
adaptor checks every 2 seconds to see if file has rotated.  If the
rotating frequency is high, like rotating every seconds.  Then there
may be a chance of losing track of correct offset in the files.
Rotated log every couple minutes with large size, helps FileTailing
adaptor to track offset in the files correctly.
As far as throughput, it can stream up to 10MB/sec from our performance test.
