I'm using flume OG (unable to upgrade to NG at this stage) and I am having trouble with the choke decorator.
I am aggregating the data flows from several logical nodes at a single 'aggregator' logical node. The data flows should be batched, zipped, choked and then sent on to another 'collector' logical node. I am using the following config to achieve this:
exec setChokeLimit aggregator.mydomain.com mychoke 150
exec config aggregator.mydomain.com 'collectorSource(35853)' 'batch(100, 1000) gzip choke("mychoke") agentBESink("collector.mydomain.com", 35853)'
The choke decorator should limit transfer to 150KB/sec, which equates to 1.2Mbit/sec. However I am regularly recording Flume traffic spikes of 5Mbit/sec and more.
Can anybody suggest what I might be doing wrong? Is it ok to chain the batch, gzip and choke decorators like this, or should they each be in a separate logical node?
