Hi Paul,

Thank you for the suggestions. I will try it.

Best Regards,

I’ve setup something similar with the spooling directory source. I have a script that is scheduled on the app server to create an incremental file every minute and then drop the incremental file in the spool directory for processing. The use case is web logs that roll over daily, but we want events ‘near’ real time. We didn’t want to use the exec source as that gives no delivery guarantee, at least with a spooling source if the flume agent stops processing the incremental files stay in the spool dir until it’s back up.

Hope that helps,
Paul Chavez

Subject: sleep() in script doesn't work when called by exec Source


I am testing with apache-flume-1.4.0-bin.
I made a naive python script for exec source to do throttling by calling sleep() function.
But the sleep() doesn't work when called by exec source.
Any ideas about this or do you have some simply solution for throttling instead of a custom source?

Flume config:
agent.sources = src1

agent.sources.src1.type = exec

agent.sources.src1.command = read-file-throttle.py

import time



with open("apache.log") as infile:

    for line in infile:

        line = line.strip()

        print line

        count += 1

        if count % 50000 == 0:

            now_time = time.time()

            diff = now_time - pre_time

            if diff < 10:

                #print "sleeping %s seconds ..." % (diff)


                pre_time = now_time

Thank you very much.
