I find the Log4j appender documentation in the user guide seems inadequate.
It has only the following two lines in the description:
*''Appends Log4j events to a flume agent’s avro source. A client using this
appender must have the flume-ng-sdk in the classpath'*
It is unclear of this is a source or a sink or something else and how it
fits into the workflow.
Could someone throw some light on it ?
