-Re: flume-ng agent startup problem
Jagadish Bihani 2012-08-14, 13:11
I verified that flume is finding hadoop directory in the classpath.
And HADOOP_HOME is also set.
When I run the flume command it prints:
apache-flume-1.2.0]$ bin/flume-ng agent -n agent -c conf -f
*Info: Including Hadoop libraries found via
(/MachineLearning/OTFA/hadoop-0.20.1-cluster1/bin/hadoop) for HDFS access*
+ exec /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_12/bin/java -Xmx20m
org.apache.flume.node.Application -n agent -f conf/flume_socket.conf
So it finds Hadoop libraries. I also tried adding other jars like
commons-cli & commons-codec in the classpath.
But still HDFS sink is not working.
