Re: Flume C Client
Flume does not have any of its components or plugins implemented in C.

So there is no C client for it. It is not really designed in a
client-server architecture.

It was designed intentionally for collecting, aggregating, and transporting
large amounts of data as events within its internal set of components.

Nevertheless, there are components within this architecture (such as
sources, channels and sinks) that interact with external endpoints in a
client-server manner.

Be that as it may, since your objective is to stream data to Flume, you can
implement your own custom event-driven source for Flume and then connect to
this source from your code to bridge in and move data from your system into

You could set up HTTPSource as the source and then use libcurl within your
C code to send events to the HTTPSource for Flume.


Apache Avro has a C api documented here

I hope this helps.
