This isn't quite right. There is support in 0.3 and later versions for
doing de-duplication at the collector, in the manner Eric describes.
It works as a filter in the writer pipeline.

You need the following in your configuration:

<property>
  <name>chukwaCollector.writerClass</name>
  <value>org.apache.hadoop.chukwa.datacollection.writer.PipelineStageWriter</value>
</property>

<property>
  <name>chukwaCollector.pipeline</name>
<value>org.apache.hadoop.chukwa.datacollection.writer.Dedup,org.apache.hadoop.chukwa.datacollection.writer.SeqFileWriter</value>
</property>
 

See http://incubator.apache.org/chukwa/docs/r0.3.0/collector.html for background
