Can we treat a whole file as a Flume event?

When using Flume to collect log files, we want to just COPY the original
files from several servers to a central storage (unix file system), not to
roll up to a big file. Because we must record some messages of the original
file such as name, host, path, timestamp, etc. Besides, we want to
guarantee total reliability: no file miss, no file reduplicated.

It seems that, in Source, we must put a whole file (size may be between
100KB and 100MB) into a Flume event; and in Sink, we must write each event
to a single file.

Is it practicable? Thanks!

Best Regards,
Henry Ma
