Re: .tmp in hdfs sink
Hi Mohit, this is a complicated issue. I've filed
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLUME-1714 to track it.

In short, it would require a non-trivial amount of work to implement this,
and it would need to be done carefully. I agree that it would be better if
Flume handled this case more gracefully than it does today. Today, Flume
assumes that you have some job that would go and clean up the .tmp files as
needed, and that you understand that they could be partially written if a
crash occurred.
